Sweet ‘n Spicy Chicken

This is one of my all-time favorite chicken recipes. When I serve it to company, they never guess my “secret” ingredient — jelly! I especially like it served with rice and broccoli on the side. –Mellyn Yield: 6 servings

  • 1/2-1 Tablespoon oil
  • 2 13-ounce cans chicken — or about 1 lb fresh, cooked and cubed**
  • 2 teaspoons taco seasoning mix
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 3/4 cup jelly — I’ve used peach and apple and crab apple with great success!
  1. Heat oil in a skillet.
  2. Drain chicken and add to skillet.
  3. Sprinkle chicken with taco seasoning mix and brown lightly.
  4. Combine salsa and jelly; stir into skillet.
  5. Bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  7. Serve over rice.

**If you’re using fresh, you may need to add more taco seasoning. Canned chicken is more salty. I also cut back the jelly a bit when using fresh chicken.
