Prep Time 15 minutes

Yield

Makes 5 servings

Ingredients

1 can (14.5 oz each) Hunt's® Diced Tomatoes, drained
3/4 cup shredded Italian blend cheese
1 pkg (0.75 oz each) fresh basil, chopped (about 1/4 cup)
5 boneless skinless chicken breasts (5 oz each)
1 can (8 oz each) Hunt's® Tomato Sauce
1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
2 cups small garlic- or Italian-flavored croutons, crushed slightly

Preparation

  1. Stir together drained tomatoes, cheese and basil in medium bowl; set aside.
  2. Pound chicken to 1/2-inch thickness. Top evenly with tomato mixture, pressing onto chicken.
  3. Combine tomato sauce and garlic in large skillet; add chicken. Bring sauce to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in centers (165°F). Top with croutons just before serving.

Cook's Tip

Don't have a meat mallet to pound the chicken? Use the side of a clean, label-free can or a rolling pin instead.
