Texas Two-Step Chicken Recipe

This popular recipe couldn't be easier, and all my guys ate it up!

2 lbs. (or so) boneless chicken (I used skinless breasts for me, and skin-on thighs for my husband, to accommodate different tastes)

1 1/2 cups of Pace Picante Sauce, or similar

1 tbs. Dijon mustard

3 Tbs. granulated Splenda or equivalent (I used 6 drops of Sweet Water liquid sucrolose)

1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick spray.

2) Put the chicken in pan.

3) Mix the salsa, mustard, and sweetener together, and pour it over the chicken.

4) Bake at 400 degrees F. for 20 minutes or so.

That's it! Easy!

The sauce is great over salad (for Kimkins) or over rice (for the family).
