Recipe Roundup: Cheesy Garlic Chicken


I just made this last night for the second time, and it was gobbled up (I had dinner guests, don't worry. It wasn't just me and the dogs slurping down dinner.)

Cheesy Garlic Chicken

4 chicken breasts
1 medium tomato, chopped OR cherry tomatoes, chopped
1 envelope of LIPTON® RECIPE SECRETS® Savory Herb with Garlic Soup Mix
1/3 cup water
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup, shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese OR shredded Italian cheese blend (like the kind Sargento makes)

*I've made this twice and the second time I marinated the chicken in the soup/water/oil mix for 12 hours. I highly suggest doing this because it really pumps up the flavor, but it's not necessary.*

**And, I had a little bit of trouble finding the soup mix at Giant, but it is available at Walmart.**

Preheat oven to 400. Place chicken in a baking dish. Mix soup, oil and water and pour over chicken. Top chicken with chopped tomatoes. Bake for 20 minutes. Top with cheese. Bake an additional 10 minutes. 

And you're done! This recipe is seriously delicious and quick. Because, I don't cook anything that takes more than 30 minutes. I don't have that kind of time (or patience.) 

Did you try last week's recipe for Chicken Enchilasgna? How did you like it?

Love this recipe! It was super delicious - love the garlic seasoning packet too. I need to use that with more things.
