Chicken With Delicious Spicy Tomato Sauce

“The sauce from this dish can be used with enchiladas or burritos, just cook down a bit before using. When I made this recipe I added in about 3/4 cup salsa to the sauce when cooking. The sauce from this is just delicious and is low-fat too. This has become one of our favorite chicken dishes, my family loves this! Add in large chunks of zucchini also if desired and if you prefer more heat add in a chopped jalapeno or increase the crushed chili flakes. This can also be made in a crockpot with great results. If you are planning to make more than 6 pieces of chicken then double the sauce recipe. You will love this!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a blender puree the stewed tomatoes, orange juice, broth, chili powder, lime juice, garlic cloves, oregano, corn syrup and cumin; set aside.
  2. In a large skillet (I use my electric frypan for this) heat oil over high heat.
  3. Season chicken with salt and pepper on all sides.
  4. Brown in hot oil about 5 minutes on each side.
  5. Add in sliced onion, chili flakes, and green pepper and the sauce from blender, reduce heat to medium and simmer uncovered until chicken is cooked through, about 40 minutes (turning over once).
  6. If desired remove the chicken when cooked and simmer the sauce and veggies longer, then just return the chicken to sauce.
  7. Season with salt and pepper.
  8. Serve with rice or hot cooked noodles.
