When chicken is cooking, prepare the Tomato Sauce and Spice Mix in separate bowls. Remove the chicken from the pan when it is cooked and discard the juice.
Heat a small sauce pan and melt the butter in it. Sauté the garlic and jalapeno until it fragrant. Pour in the Spice Mix and sauté until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes on medium heat. Remove the jalapeno and discard.
