Bruschetta Chicken Bake

Recipe #2 of my 3 so far this week (I'd like to point out it's Wednesday - this NEVER happens!)  I'm on a mission... and also procrastinating getting ready for our garage sale on Saturday.  Story of my life, things start getting done at light speed when I have multiple things to do an a deadline that I'm ignoring : )  Either way, we're benefiting from it... new home cooked meals, staying on budget AND we WILL have a garage sale!  (If I keep saying it, it will happen, right???)

This recipe tasted like chicken Parmesan to Ryan and it tasted like deep dish pizza to me.  Either way, we LOVED it and will be doing this again for sure.  Super easy on the clean-up with the foil packets and makes enough for leftovers or 3-4 adults.


1 can  (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes-garlic and basil flavor, undrained
1pkg.  (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix Turkey or Chicken flavor - whole wheat for a healthier version
1 tsp of prepared minced garlic - found in the produce section (they have it in a squeezable tube now - it's awesome!)
5 or 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 lb.)
2 tsp of dried basil leaves
1 1/2cup  KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Pam Original Cooking Spray
Heat oven to 400ºF.   If using regular tinfoil, prepare 6 squares of foil, 2 sheets of foil each, and spray with cooking spray.  In 1.5qt. or larger mixing bowl stir tomatoes (undrained), stuffing mix and garlic just until stuffing mix is moistened. Place 1 chicken breast on center of each of 6 large foil square sprayed with cooking spray; sprinkle each chicken breast with a dash of dried basil, then spoon stuffing mixture on top of chicken and top with cheese. Bring up foil sides; fold to make packets. Place in pan with at least a 1 inch lip.
Bake 40-45 minutes or until chicken is done (165ºF). Let rest in the packet for 5-10 min. before serving. Serve in the packet.
