Recipe by Marylou
"No need to turn the oven on with this recipe that a chef gave me years ago. It was a popular item at the restaurant, always requested and it is still my family and friends favorite today! I have added my own special touches to make it even better. This can also be served over rice instead of tortillas."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 (16 ounce) jar
mild picante sauce
shredded Monterey Jack cheese
8 (8 inch)
sliced black olives
Very good and so easy! I added some garlic and a little cumin and cayenne as well as sauting a few cloves of garlic with the onion. We like things spicy so I used medium salsa and it was perfect 'heat'. Used a cheddar/jack mix for a little more flavor. We all enoyed these as burritos very much.
taste was good but wasn't exactly what i was expecting in the presentation department...
This is a very easy dish and a great addition to any recipe box. I have made this for certain guests that we have over and it is often requested from return visitors. I highly recommend especially for people with little time on there hands.
This recipe defiantly needs some help, otherwise it's just salsa and chicken. Not very appealing. First off, I added some finely crushed garlic to my onions for frying. I also added some fresh chopped chilies to fry also. It really bring the taste out, but be careful not to add too much if you don't like it spicy. When adding my shredded chicken to my onions. I stirred that around for awhile before adding the salsa to bring the flavor to the chicken. Before leaving it to simmer, add some ground cumin and coriander. And taste it to see if it needs any cayenne powder. About half way through simmering add some black beans. And last but not least, toast your flour tortillas. I put mine in the toaster and turned out Excellent! Don't forget your sour cream, and enjoy. I will defiantly make again! My Husband Loved it!!!
a great recipe that ive added to my personal cookbook. i found that cilantro and green chiles really added to the flavor. but great nonetheless.
The whole family liked this recipe, howeveer, I did make a few changes. When I cooked the chicken, I cooked it in chicken broth instead of water. I also followed the advice of some of the previous reviews and added garlic and fresh chopped jalapeno to my onions. I added the chicken and the picante sauce and spiced it up with some ground cumin and salt and I added a can of black beans (YUM). When I served this I put it into a big bowl and added fresh chopped cilantro for flavor and garnish. I served it with warm flour tortillas and spanish rice. I think that next time I will try this with a jar of taco sauce instead of the picante sauce and add my own green and red peppers.
So glad I read reviews! when you add black beans to this and saute garlic with the onions and add cumin this recipe is just GREAT! very easy to make and delicious, would be great for parties served out of a crockpot too. I served on warm tortillas with lettuce.
Terrific!!! Added cheddar/jack for extra flavor and served over rice...Scrumptious.....Also great as burritos.....Thanks Marylou
