recipe of the week: bruschetta chicken bake

here's a delicious, easy and beautiful meal by kraft (introduced to me by my friend jenny who also introduced this deliciousness to me). your family is bound to love this one and not even know how healthy they are eating! we like ours with a side of some yummy potatoes, but serve any way you'd like!

bruschetta chicken bake
6 servings

1 can (14-1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 package (6 oz.) stuffing mix for chicken
1/2 cup water
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1. mix tomatoes, stuffing mix, water and garlic just until stuffing mix is moistened.
2. layer chicken, basil and cheese in 3-qt. casserole or 13x9-inch baking dish.
3. top with stuffing mixture. bake 30 minutes at 400 or until chicken is done.

***option: sometimes i put a tiny bit of fat free italian dressing over the top of the chicken before i complete the dish. it's great with or without this, though!

We made that recipe awhile back and forgot about it! I remember it was so tasty and anything with the word bruschetta is a friend of mine :) Thanks for reminding me. Yours looks great!

I have made this several times now, and it is great. :) I even made a southwestish version one night that had turkey burger, tomatoes with green chilies, corn and cheddar cheese on the stuffing. It was pretty good too. Total comfort food, we really like this recipe!

healthy cooking on a budget

disclaimer: i don't claim to be an expert on cooking, weight loss or even healthy eating, but i do love to cook, find healthy, taste bud-friendly tricks and most of all, i love to eat!

qualifications: what qualifies me to blog on cooking healthy on a small budget? well, as my husband is still a student, my budget is not what you'd call large. and as for the healthy part, when i was 10 i was diagnosed with pancreatitus - a disease that doesn't effect me much anymore unless i eat food that is too greasy or has too much fat (in which case, well, let's just say i get really sick). this had steered my experience and limited cooking expertise in a health-conscious direction.
