  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. Chicken breast tenders may be used in place of breasts with no pounding needed. Place tomato sauce and garlic in skillet; top with 1-1/2 pounds tenders. Spoon diced tomato mixture over tenders. Bring sauce to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 to 12 minutes or until chicken is done (165°F). Top with croutons.

My husband and I thought this was absolutely delicious! The chicken turned out moist and perfect...he didn't care for the crouton topping but I liked it. It's definitely made it into our meal rotation!!

I love Hunts tomato sauce. It is the only sauce I use to make my spaghetti sauce or any recipe that calls for any kind of tomato product. I did spice up this dish a little with basil and oregNo but it was delish!

I will definitely make this again. It was quick, easy, and tasty. If you like garlic, I suggest adding more than the recipe calls for (I added 3 tsp. instead of 1). My husband didn't want the croutons on his, but said it was delicious even without the topping.

Quick and easy crowd pleaser. Can embellish easily with fresh herbs or other ingredients.
