A hearty Italian dish that's a lovely fresh tasting main course you can serve with pride and without fuss. Boneless skinless chicken breasts are convenient to thaw and cook quickly.—Joan Rose, Langley, British Columbia


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian stewed tomatoes
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • Hot cooked spaghetti


  1. In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, cook chicken for 5-6 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170°.
  2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium heat, combine the tomatoes, mushrooms, basil and garlic powder; bring to a boil. Combine cornstarch and water; gradually add to tomato mixture. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve chicken with spaghetti; top with tomato sauce.
