Chicken Bruschetta Bake


I found this recipe a long time ago, when K and I started making our lifestyle change. I found it via WW but I've seen variations all over the web. It's a very simple, almost comfort food classic, super easy and quick to make and yummy :) My tweaks are noted at the end!

This makes 4 servings


Chicken Bruschetta Bake

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (6 ounce) package chicken stuffing mix

  • Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400.
    2. 2
      Saute chicken with spices, onion and garlic until lightly browned, but not cooked through.
    3. 3
      Place chicken in a casserole dish and sprinkle with cheese.
    4. 4
      In a bowl, mix tomatoes and stuffing mix, until stuffing mix is moistened.
    5. 5
      Spread stuffing and tomato mixture over chicken and cheese.
    6. 6
      Bake for 30 minutes.

  • My adaptations:

  • 1)We use a lot of frozen precooked chicken b/c we are busy people. My favorite is this product from Wegman's:
  • Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Chicken Breast Strips, Grilled

  • http://www.wegmans.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10052&catalogId=10002&productId=725933
  • 3oz=80 calories, so I use 12oz for this recipe.

  • 2)Be careful of storebought stuffing, most all of it is FULL of nasty crap (HFCS, PH oils, etc). We use this stuffing mix and love it for all things, so yummy.
  • Arrowhead Mills Organic Organic Savory Herb Stuffing

    It is 10oz package, as opposed to stovetop etc, which are 6oz packages, so just measure it out/weigh it to get your 6oz
