Bruschetta Chicken

BC 6

This chicken dish has to be one of the easiest recipes ever!  It takes ten minutes tops to prep and yet it is so tasty and good.  Jordan admitted the other day that she wished that she has requested it for her birthday dinner.  Seriously?  I was shocked that she liked it so much.  We live in the middle of nowhere and can’t even get pizza delivered, but this is almost faster than delivery!

The ingredients are a bit unusual – but it so easy and yummy, it’s worth trying.

Here’s what you do:

Pour dried stuffing mix into a bowl, add the canned tomatoes, water and garlic…

and stir until combined.

Place chicken pieces into a lightly sprayed 9×13″ baking dish; sprinkle the chicken with the basil and 1 cup of cheese.

BC 4

Top with stuffing mixture.

Bake at 375* for about 25 minutes and then top with the last cup of cheese and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

Watch to be sure that the topping doesn’t get too brown.

Obviously we failed in the self-control department…I couldn’t even wait for Jordan to take the picture before digging in!

Yum! We serve with our famous Parmesan pasta, but with the stuffing on top, you really don’t need an additional starch.  It would be great with a salad and some veggies and crusty bread!  Enjoy!

Place chicken pieces into a lightly sprayed 9×13″ baking dish; sprinkle the chicken with the basil and 1 cup of cheese.  Top with stuffing mixture.

This recipe originally came from kraftfoods.com.  I made a few tweaks over the years.
