Chili Chicken Recipe

Michael Dobrowski of Reno, Nevada notes, "For busy days, I keep convenient pantry items on hand to spice up chicken breasts. While they bake, I can do other things. With a green salad and French bread, this makes a hearty meal my family enjoys."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. Bake: 1 hour and 5 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 pound)
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian stewed tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 ounces) chili with beans
  • 4 slices cheddar or American cheese

Directions

  • 1. Place chicken in an ungreased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Top with tomatoes. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 50 minutes. Spoon chili over each chicken breast; bake 10 minutes longer. Top with cheese; return to the oven for 3-4 minutes or until cheese is melted. Yield: 4 servings.
