This is a good tasting and easy chicken recipe that our family enjoys. Hope yours does, too!
1 can (14 1/2 oz) italian style diced tomatoes, undrained
1 1/4 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese - divided
1/4 c chopped fresh basil
1 pkg (6oz) stuffing mix for chicken
8 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/3 c Roasted red pepper italian w/ parmesan dressing
Preheat oven to 350. To prepare stuffing, combine tomatoes and their liquid, 1/2 c shredded mozzarella cheese, basil and dry stuffing mix, stirring until just moistened.
Put 2 chicken breast halves in a large resealable bag. Pound the chicken with the side of a heavy can, rolling pin or meat mallet until chicken is 1/4 in. thick. Repeat process in the same bag with remaining chicken breasts.
Place pounded chicken breast, smooth side down, on a cutting board. Spread with 1/8 of stuffing mixture.
Roll chicken breast, starting at the narrow end, as tightly as possible around the stuffing mixture.
Place in a 9 x 13 baking dish with seam side down, as this allows the chicken to hold together nicely. Pour dressing evenly over chicken and bake for 40 min.
Sprinkle with remaining 3/4 c cheese and bake 5 min. longer, or until cheese is melted and chicken is cooked through.
Makes 8 servings of 1 chicken breast each.
God Bless and have a peaceful, restful Sunday!
