Sweet n Spicy Chicken

Sweet n Spicy Chicken

Introduction

I got this recipe from McCormick. It tastes great with rice.
You can reduce the sodium by using Less Sodium taco seasonings. I changed the recipe by using Pam to cook the chicken instead of oil.

    I have type 2 diabetes, so I lightened it up a little. I used Mexican seasoning on the chicken instead of taco seasoning and used sugar free apricot jam in the salsa. It was great. - 5/22/08
