Bruschetta Chicken Bake

Happy Thursday Everyone!

I am seriously playing catch up!  I have three more recipes, two product reviews, and a report to post.  I cannot even begin to explain the craziness that has been my life lately!  David has been working 12 hour nights, 6 nights a week for over a month now. Daniel is being VERY challenging, and I am burnt out.  It is at times like these when I really wish I still lived in Seattle, close to my family (or that I had a nanny).  Anyway, enough rambling on.  I do have a ton for which to be thankful too!   

I made this recipe a couple of nights ago.  I first had this chicken when I was back home in Seattle last.  My mom made it.  I think she got it from Betty Crocker or one of those websites.  Anyway, I had been thinking about it and decided to make it again!  I am not a huge fan of chicken, so any way I can dress it up is a good thing!  I served this with steamed green beans.  Really yummy, really easy, and REALLY inexpensive!  In fact, this meal is only around $1.50 per serving!  You can't beat that!  

Bruschetta Chicken Bake

  • 4  boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 pkg. (6 oz) stuffing mix (be sure to check the ingredients because some mixes have the yucky no no ingredients- I used the homemade mix that Hy-Vee makes in their bakery), or leftover stuffing
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock or broth
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray a square baking dish generously with cooking spray.  Place the chicken breasts in the baking dish.  In a bowl, mix the stuffing, the chicken stock, the garlic, and the diced tomatoes until just moistened, but still a little crunchy.  Pour over the chicken, making sure it is completely covered.  Top with the shredded cheese.  Cover with foil and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the chicken has an internal temp. of 165 degrees or it is no longer pink.  Uncover and bake another 5-10 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.  

Until next time, happy and HEALTHY cooking and EATING!
