  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.

We loved this recipe and will definitely keep it on regulars list. We did make a couple minor changes, using Pecorino Romano cheese instead of the blend and Hunts Four Cheese tomato sauce instead of the original. I also put a sear on the chicken before topping them and sprinkle a little cheese on them at the end. Great recipe. Thanks Hunt's!!!

This recipe is a good idea, but lacks enough sauce to make it memorable. Need to increase the sauce ingredients.
