  1. In a large pot over medium-low heat, mix the pasta sauce, picante sauce, tomatoes, tomato paste, and Parmesan cheese. Season with oregano, thyme, parsley, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Place the chicken in a separate pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer 25 minutes, until chicken juices run clear.
  3. Transfer chicken to the pot with the sauce mixture. Cover, and cook on low 1 hour.
  4. In a separate pot, bring the rice and water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve the chicken and sauce over the cooked rice.

We don't really care for spaghetti sauce. We maybe eat it once a year if that, but this was really good. I have never bought jarred sauce before so picking one was a challegene. We like hot & spicy foods so we used hot picante sauce. I used spaghetti noodles insted of rice and shredded grilled chicken on top, instead of cooking it in the sauce. Now that I have this recipe maybe we will eat spaghetti more often. Enjoy.

I didn't have the proportions exactly right since my jar sizes were different, but it was still delicious. My kids (2.5 and 5) ate every bit on their plates and my daughter asked for more!



It was OK, nothing great or terrible about it.
