List of Ingredients
2 serving cooking spray (5 one-second sprays per serving)
2 1/2 packet uncooked instant oatmeal, 1 oz each (about 1 cup total)
2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast(s), four 4 oz pieces
1 cup canned tomato sauce
1 large tomato(es), beefsteak, cored and diced
1/4 cup basil, fresh, chopped
4 oz Kraft Free Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, or other brand
Preheat oven to 400║F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
Combine oats, 1 teaspoon of oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper together in a shallow dish. Add chicken to oat mixture and turn to coat both sides, pressing oat mixture onto chicken with your hands. Place chicken on prepared baking sheet and lightly coat surface with cooking spray; bake 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine tomato sauce, tomato and remaining teaspoon of oregano. Set pan over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Simmer 10 minutes; remove from heat and stir in basil.
Remove chicken from oven (keeping oven at 400║F) and top each chicken breast with 1/4 cup of sauce and 1/4 cup (1 ounce) of cheese. Return pan to oven and bake until cheese is melted and golden, about 7 to 10 minutes more. Yields 1 piece per serving.
