O.K. I changed a few ingredients in this recipe....but other than that this was AMAZING!!! I doubled the cheese to 4 cups of mozzarella and used 4 fresh tomatoes from my garden rather than canned. I also used half olive oil and half water with a handful of torn basil to be more like bruschetta. I then added a TBS of balsamic vinegar reduction. (You could use plain balsamic vinegar) I used 4 garlic cloves and cut the chicken into wide strips rather than chunks. I added some dried parsley and oregano on top of the cheese and I then topped the entire dish with freshly grated parmesan cheese. This recipe turned out soooo good there was not even a crumb of it left!Read More

As written, 4 stars, but with the changes I made I'd give it 5 stars. Used Italian diced tomatoes and added 2 Tbsp of balsamic vinegar and a dash of red pepper flakes to them before adding the stuffing. Omitted the salt and tossed the chicken with 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar, black pepper, and garlic powder. Instead of just mozzarella, I used mozzarella, swiss and parmesan. With these changes, it was AWESOME! Even the leftovers were great!
I left out the stuffing mix completely. I mixed breading and the Italian seasoning and breaded the chicken cubes. Baked that for 30 minutes. I drained the tomatoes, mixed the diced tomatoes with the garlic, sea salt, and a fist full of chopped fresh basil. The last 10 minutes of baking, I topped the chicken with the tomato mix, then sprinkled with the cheese and baked till the cheese was melted. The kids loved it and went back for seconds.
This is one of the best chicken recipes I have tried to date; I marinated the chicken in Italian dressing a few hours to keep it from tasting too bland, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. This recipe is delicious and very easy; I highly recommend it. FYI: The photo provided doesn't really give this recipe justice...I was going to upload my own photo, but all the leftovers are gone!
I cannot believe that people said this recipe was dry and bland. We found it to be quite flavorful and very moist. This was one dish of many that I made on a weekend and popped in the freezer for a future busy work night dinner. It freezes beautifully. You could spice it up with red pepper flakes or green chiles if you desire. But we loved it just the way it was written. Excellent!
This was very well received at my house. I followed the recipe exactly, and it was excellent. I wouldn't change anything, but I was thinking that another way you could take this is to use Mexican spices, cumin and adobo...use Rotel...then use cornbread dressing and cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella. Just a thought.....
This recipe was very quick, cheap and easy! Perfect for a family on a budget and/or a person rushing to get dinner on the table. Preparation was quick and easy, and the cook time was perfect! I preseasoned my chicken in Mrs. Dash's Garlic and Herb seasoning, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper before putting the cheese over. It made the chicken very flavorful and added to the overall taste of the dish. Besides seasoning the chicken, I wouldn't change a thing! This is definitely a keeper. Thank you for sharing, Heather!
Fantastic recipe! I made a couple of modifications and used what I had on hand and a slow cooker due to time. Instead of bread stuffing mix I used my own cubed whole wheat bread and mixed this with 2 cans of italian seasoned diced tomatoes and romano cheese. I seasoned the chicken with Italian seasoning then cut into cubes and lightly breaded with whole wheat bread crumbs and grated romano cheese. I added the chicken to the bottom of a slow cooker and topped with the tomato mixture. Cooked on low for 8 hours then topped with romano cheese before serving. Froze leftovers
I haven't tried this yet, but giving it a 5 star for perseverance of the person posting. I read probably 20 reviews on this recipe and found that only 1 was actually a review of THIS RECIPE. All others were reviews on what they made. How can you review something and give it stars if you haven't even made it. I punched in the ingredients I had on hand to find a recipe. After reading the 'reviews' (I say that loosely) I would have to have gone to the store 5 times over. Please review the recipes as written.
This dish was very easy and delicious. I was a bit concerned that the raw chicken wouldn't cook properly in just 30 minutes, covered in cheese and breadcrumbs as it was, so I precooked the chicken chunks. I think the cheese was a tad bland, so next time, I will add some grated parmesan to the shredded mozzarella. But, for a very fast meal, this was excellent!
As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a good idea that could use some tweaking. My stuffing came out all soggy, and I thought the whole thing was a little too salty.
After reading some reviews, I opted to omit the salt and tossed the chicken in Italian seasoning, onion and garlic powder and crushed red and black pepper. I topped the chicken with a blend of shredded sharp cheddar, provolone, mozzarella and parm cheeses. I mixed reduced sodium stuffing with one can of fire roasted tomatoes w/ basil and a handful of fresh basil and layered it on top. I also used HALF WATER AND HALF EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL. Lastly, I topped the dish with another sprinkle of Italian seasoning and parm. I baked for an extra ten minutes bc the internal temp did not quite reach the recommended temperature of 160 degrees (f). Easy and delish. Family stopped by unexpectedly and there was plenty left...so she ate and absolutely raved about it. With a few modifications, this can certainly be a 5-star dish!
Tried this as a kind of desperation dinner, and followed the recipe to a "T". It had a good flavor, but I think Italian style tomatoes and another garlic clove would make it better. Also, even though the chicken was done after 30 minutes, the topping was a little soggy. Next time, I think I will bake it a few more minutes for more crunch.
This was tasty but I did modify it per other reviews. No salt and I used thin cut chicken breasts (whole) I seasoned the breasts with basil, oregano, pepper and garlic powder. I used diced tomatoes w/basil, oregano & garlic. Last 5 min of baking I topped with cheese until it melted. Fabulous FLAVOR!!!
I've made this dozens of times now and we really like it. It has become part of our regular rotation. It's delicous as written but I like to add 1/2 onion, double the garlic and add a tbsp balsamic to the tomato sauce. I also stir in one tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp balsamic with the chicken. Nice family dinner with or without the changes. Thanks! I do not add salt. And I toss stuffing in just before I spread on chicken. Otherwise it's soggy. It seems to me calorie count is off. ...personal use...used 175 gm cheese and cal count is 412
Did not like it at all. Too salty!
Absolutely loved it!!!! I didn't have diced tomatoes, so I used Italian stewed tomatoes and it was awesome. I'm making it again next week!
As my husband will confirm, I rarely follow a recipe to the tee, and this was no different. I mixed the chicken stuffing mix with tomato pesto and canned diced tomatoes (I drained the juice) I then layered cooked penne pasta /stuffing mixture/grated mozzarella/with whole skinless chicken thighs, followed by more breading and cheese. It was very easy and my family really liked it. I am sure I will make it again.
This recipe is SO good! I made it last night for my family and there were no leftovers! I did tweak it a little though. I sliced the chicken into strips and then cut in half so that they are about 3" long. Then I cooked the chicken in a pan over the stove (I added a little bit of olive oil to the pan). I added Mrs. Dash seasoning and pepper to taste (I did not add ANY salt to the recipe at all as I thought it would already be salty from the stuffing...I was right). After putting on the cheese and Italian seasoning I also added Oregano and Basil (Honestly, I just covered it with seasoning as I love it...so no measurements were taken). I used a box of whole wheat chicken flavored stuffing (5oz) then added a drizzle of olive oil in the stuffing mix, 3/4 medium red onion, a TBS of Balsamic vinaigrette, and 3 fresh tomatoes instead of the canned (tin-canned tomatos aren't good for you as the acid makes BPA enter food more quickly and tin cans have that toxic chemical in them). I baked and then 15 minutes before it was done, I topped it with fresh Parmesan cheese along with grated Parmesan cheese. The only thing I might change or add next time is doing one less tomato and replace it with sun-dried tomatoes. Seriously, this was SO DELICIOUS....my new signature dish.
This was delicious. I used Italian seasoning on my chicken instead of salt. The only thing I added was chopped baby bellas to the stuffing mix. My one mistake was I forgot the layer of cheese! I added it to the top of the dish and it was fine. I will make this one again.
I was hoping this would be better than it was. I followed this recipe pretty closely. In addition to the salt and pepper, I seasoned the chicken with a little of the Italian seasoning. I used tomatoes with basil, oregano and garlic, and added some fresh basil. The flavor was good, but my biggest objection to this recipe was the stuffing mixture was pretty mushy, with the exception of the very top, which had a little crispness to it. I baked mine for 40 minutes at 375 because I had made it ahead and refrigerated it. I thought at 400 degrees, the top might burn before the chicken was done.
I thought this was good, but everyone else thought it was wonderful! This is now THE dish I make to bring to others (with new babies, illness, etc), and I am always asked for the recipe. I had so many wives calling me to tell me their husband insisted they get the recipe, that I now include the recipe with the dish.
This was really good, but not outstanding. I followed the recipe to the letter the first time & it was good. I made it again with the following modifications and they really put it over the top! Fillet the Chicken breast or cube it, then let it marinate in some low-fat Italian salad dressing. I also doubles the water that was added into the stuffing. (My first stuffing was a bit crunchy.) Lastly, I used a cheese mix of Parm & Mozz. Serve this with a crisp tomatoed salad & you are set!!
Not a big fan of this recipe. I followed it exactly as written. It was quick and easy. My husband liked it, but I didn't. I probably won't be making this again. sorry.
Prepare bruschetta and chicken separately.
I liked but hubby did not.
It was OKAY. Stuffing was too dry even with the can of tomato.. overall taste was good, just a bit hard to swallow! Next time I will add more tomatoes to give it a bit more flavor and make stuffing moist. Good recipe though!
Holy comfort food! Delicious. I made a few alterations, like everyone else it seems. I put a couple table spoons of balsamic vinegar in with the stuffing. Also used a few different types of cheese, doubling the original amount specified. Added chopped jalapenos in with the tomato. Perfect all together. Will definitely make this often!
This was fast and easy, and the whole family enjoyed it. I only used about half as much cheese, as that was all we had left. Great stuff.
I had wanted to try this chicken dish for some time. I finally made it, but with a couple of changes. I used tomatoes from our garden rather than canned. I cut the tomatoes in the morning and added the salt and the garlic and let them meld all day and create its own juice. I didn't have a box of stuffing mix, so I made my own using another AR recipe 'Basic Bread Stuffing'. The final result was a great tasting dish, with the flavor of the fresh tomatoes really coming through. The leftovers were very good, if we reheated in the toaster oven. Thanks Heather for sharing your recipe.
This was tasty, everyone loved it, fast, easy. I used pre-cooked chicken strips, added 1 pack of frozen spinach to chicken layer and topped with sauteed mushrooms and parmesan. Thanks for a great recipe. It was voted a keeper!
This recipe was very tasty. I didn't use a can of diced tomatoes. I marinated the chicken. Then I made my own bruschetta mixture with fresh tomatoes, basil leaves, olive oil, water, garlic, and balsamic vinegar. I let the bruschetta chill in the fridge for a few hours, then I mixed it with the stuffing. I put the marinated chicken on the bottom of the pan, added mixed shredded cheeses i/l/o just mozz, added italian seasoning on top of the cheese, then put the stuffing mixture on top of everything. YUM YUM
We all ate this, but I don't believe anyone will be asking for it again. The tomatoes with the stuffing was a strange combination and the chicken was bland.
this was very easy and has a great flavor however I made some changes. I have a child with milk allergy's so I added a little cheese on the chicken but put most of it on top of half...next time I would switch that put half the cheese over half the chicken and add a little on top to show which side has cheese. I also marinaded the chicken in Italian dressing and I used double the meat in tender form, didn't cube... I also doubled the topping but then realized that I still used a 9x13 pan. It was too much, so next time I won't double the topping just the meat.most of my family loved it and I had it ready for the oven in 10 min. yea !!
The fastest, easiest recipe I've discovered for chicken in ages! And absolutely delicious. I "experimented" on my friends and they immediately asked for the recipe
This is really good - with a couple minor changes. I omit the salt and use 2 cloves of garlic, rather than a teaspoon. I also brown the chicken prior to putting it in the 9x13 and only use 1 cup of cheese. Oh, and I don't bother to grease the pan - it doesn't seem to stick in my glass dish. This looks fancy enough for company and is SUPER easy. My husband (who can't stand tomatoes, except in ketchup and spaghetti sauce) raved about it and said I need to add it to my regular rotation.
Wow!! This was amazing! The only thing I did different was to use one and a half 10 oz. cans of diced tomatoes with green chilies to heat it up a little instead of the diced tomatoes. Thanks for the amazing recipe! I loved it!
As a comfort food and casserole, this recipe is five star. I am dumbfounded in reading those reviews that didn't like it. Granted, I made some slight modifications, but the basics of this recipe easily allow for that: 1) I used the kind of cheese I had on hand, Swiss. Six slices were enough to cover all of the chicken; I also used four slices of American cheese overlayed with the Swiss, and 2) Instead of regular canned tomatoes, I used one 10.5 ounce can of Original Ro*tel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies (with some leftover fresh diced tomatoes added, fill the empty Ro*Tel can up almost 1/2 way for correct volume), 3) added some (1 teaspoon, or so) Italian seasoning to the tomato mixture. This recipe has a beautiful appearance and with Ro-tel tomatoes/chilies adds just enough of a kick to make the dish almost downright exciting.
This is something quick that I would make again. Added some balsamic vinegar and used panko instead of the stuffing mix since that's what I had.
Delicious.....made this before. Still tasty none the less.
I did not care for this recipe. Made as recommended. It just tasted like a huge chunk of fake tomatoes, fake cheese, and fake chicken.
I admit this dinner sounds kindof creative but its no different than the recipe on the stove top stuffing box.
This was interesting, at first I wasn't sure but I kept going back for extra servings so I guess that says something. Easy to make, will keep it in my recipe box. Thanks!
This is similar to a recipe Kraft puts out...and while it's easy, I find it to be just OK in taste. The stuffing flavor really overpowers this dish...so you better like that! Only thing I did differently was to marinate the chicken in Italian dressing all day prior to throwing this together.
We like this a lot. Very simple to prepare. Makes a quick, easy weeknight supper. This recipe can be found in Kraft's Food and Family magazine.
Although the stuffing turned out soggy, which was my fault, I loved the taste and how easy it was to make. I didn't cube the chicken because that didn't sound really good to me so I stripped it instead and put it in the oven alone first. Thank you for this awesome recipe!
I did not care for this! Too salty and doesn't taste anything like Bruschetta.
I did not care fo this recipe; now I have a ton of leftovers that no one will eat. Sorry.
I used diced tomatos with garlic and onion and I thought it was fabulous. It was easy to make no fuss no muss. I might add a little more tomatos though.
Delicious! This recipe was very quick and easy. I would not salt the chicken next time. The stuffing had plenty of salt for the dish. I would definately make it again only I would have to double the recipe!!
Great Recipe...used fresh tomatoes & fresh basil & a little Balsamic Vinegar. Will for sure make it again.
I originally saw this recipe on the side of a Stove Top canister and thought it sounded good. Unfortunately none of the flavors blend together, it ends up tasting like chicken, stuffing mix, and canned tomatoes. Don't be fooled by the simplicity of this recipe; it's not a hit.
My family did not enjoy this. The flavors where rather bland as written.
Read the reviews before making and doubled the tomatoes and cheese as well as adding basil to the mix...it was fantastic but definitely needed the changes! Otherwise would have been 5 stars. Served over a little pasta with some bread and salad...excellent!
No need to add the salt to the chicken. Quick!
This was a tasty, easy recipe. As the previous person stated, I was concerned that the raw chicken would not cook to my satisfaction, so I boiled the chicken first and then I poured some of the chick broth over the entire dish to make it moist. If you do this, I suggest that you reduce the cooking time to 20 minutes. This was delicious. I will definitely make this again!
Good but not great. Flavors did not blend well. I would make again, but try fresh tomatoes, maybe?
We took the suggestion and made it in a crock pot... mm mm good! The meat was tender and the brushetta added a kick. I used a bit of basalmic vinegar, some fresh basil, and topped it off with Parmesan cheese. Next time we might eat it over spaghetti. Great all-around recipe!
Picky family... they LOVED IT! It was SO simple to make also! I have a crazy work schedule & this makes cooking a nice, healthy dinner easy! Thank you!
I substituted store-bought bruschetta in place of chopped tomatoes to make the recipe a bit quicker and it still came out amazing. I was looking for a very quick, tasty meal to throw together after work and this was the perfect find!!!
Very tasty!! You can't get much easier than this one too. It was put together in no time at all. My family loved it. I did use one can of the fire roasted tomatoes and one can of stewed tomatoes with the juices. I didn't need to add any more liquid. It was yummy with a good salad, and french bread!
This was fabulous! I can't give it 5 stars since I didn't have stuffing and followed more of the directions on the 3rd comment. But it will go into the rotation!
Great easy dinner! I used Low Sodium Stuffing mix to cut the saltiness and I added a few tablespoons of Balsamic Vinegar to add extra flavor.
Loved this recipe! So easy to make. I used whole wheat stuffing mix and no one noticed. I only used 1 cup of cheese to cut some of the fat. Will make again.
Very easy to make and was received well by company. Instead of using shredded cheese, I used fresh, pearl mozzarella which added a better flavor.
My husband loved this !!
Excellent and easy
I thought this dish was very dry and bland in taste! Not sure that more tomatoes or less stuffing would help it much. Will not make it again.
YUM!!! This is so quick & easy - great for a busy mom. I also added a few dashes of balsamic vinegar to the bread mixture (which was 1/2 day-old crusty rolls cut up into squares because I didn't have enough stuffing). I also sprinkled some Parmesan on top of the mozzarella. Will definitely make this again!
I loved everything about this recipe! It was so very delicious!!! My friend was over for dinner and loved it and my husband enjoyed it as well.
It was decent. I used chicken strips instead of chunking up chicken breasts. I sprinkled the chicken with the Italian seasoning along with garlic and onion powder. Baked at for 40 minute and they were perfect. Low on fat, full on flavor, nice weeknight dish with lots for leftovers. Thanks
tasty....I added some traditional brushetta items....
Perfect for a meal on the fly! I do use seasoned diced tomatoes when I make it so maybe that is what some users are missing when they say it lacks flavor!
Very easy to make I had all the ingredients on hand.
Fabulous and so easy. nothing else needs to be said.
Quick and tasty. My partner loved it. For a next time, I will not add salt since the stuffing provides enough.
At first, we were skeptical of raw chicken cooked for only thirty minutes, but it turned out we were wrong! This was a great find, although I would agree with others in that it was a bit too salty. Also, the cheese was quite bland, so in addition to what is already called for, I would add some three cheese blend in. Thanks! :]
I've made this twice already for my family and they love it...Only thing I change is increase the amount of diced tomatoes to 1 one and a half to two cans. It's yummy!!
We make this recipe all the time. The only change I've made is to omit the extra salt. so far nothing has gone wrong with it and it makes great leftovers.
Sorry, but I can only rate this recipe 3 stars as written. I do feel it has the potential to be much, much, more. First of all I did partially cook the cubed chicken and am very glad I did. I do not feel it would have been cooked in the stated time if not. So, I cooked the meat in a little extra virgin olive oil and seasoned with garlic powder and Italian seasoning. I did not add salt based on other reviews and am certainly glad I didn't. This dish is quite salty on its own. The stuffing mixture was spread on top of the chicken,sprinkled with the Italian seasoning, followed by a combination of both mozzeralla and parmesan cheeses. Next time I will use a combo of basil, oregano,and parsley rather than the seasoning mix.
Excellent casserole. I followed the recipe as directed but instead of ordinary diced tomatoes, I added italian diced tomatoes and a container of President's Choice Bruschetta cheese mix (available in Canada). My daughter who dislikes tomatoes ate all the tomatoes in this recipe. A big hit!
I made this as the recipe was written and my family did not enjoy it, the stuffing was dry on top and the whole dish had a strange flavor, we won't be making this again:(
My daughter loved this. Simple ingredients and a snap to throw together on a weeknight. I added extra garlic and some sauted mushrooms...delicious!
i had seen this recipe in a magazine and later found it on a box of stuffing. the first time i tried it, i added too much water! oops! it turned out so mushy but we managed to eat about half the dish. i've been scared to try it again, but i'm sure if you follow the recipe it'd be good! i wouldn't use chicken stuffing though, just herb.
For some reason I found this to be so much more delicious as a leftover than fresh out of the oven. I think next time I make this I will just wait a day before eating it. Also added some zucchini, which made it pretty darn tasty, I think.
Delicious with a little balsamic added to the stuffing!
This was really good! The only slight change I made was to add diced onion to the chicken. Even DH who doesn't like chicken or Italian really liked this. Thank you, Heather!
We have made this several times. I like to sprinkle the cheese on last.
I tweeked this abit. First, no salt when cooking the chicken. I actually cooked it in a bit of reduced sodium chicken broth to keep it moist. And instead of boxed stuffing, I made my own with toasted chunks of tuscan bread and poured a mixture of celery and onions cooked in the remaining chicken broth, sage, garlic powder, s&p, oregano, basil and a little chicken soup base over top just to make it moist. Then, I drained half of the liquid out of the tomatoes, and mixed them with the stuffing. I didn't have any mozzerella to use, so I used a little dusting of parmasan. Absolutely fabulous. Even reheated!
Awesome, easy recipe! My husband loved it! Very cheap to make.
Pretty good. Very easy.
Very good taste and oh so easy to make.
My hubby loved this! I only liked it but I'm also not a huge stuffing fan. I only tweaked this a bit. I cooked my chicken for a bit 1st...just in olive oil with garlic salt and pepper. I think it gave it a lil more flavor and helped it cook faster. I also cooked it for about 15 mins without the cheese then added it the last 10. It made the stuffing less soggy. It was VERY easy and very fast. Not many ingredients either and very cheap per serving!
chunk up the chicken, added two cans, but still seemed dry, bread crumbs not that good - it was ok
quick. easy. flavorful. a good solid 4 stars.
I really enjoyed this dish. It was quick and easy and my little toddler like it.
I coated the chicken in 1 tbs balsamic and 1 tsp garlic. Also added balsamic to the stuffing - enjoyed the leftovers and will make again!
I absolutely LOVED this recipe!! I followed many of the suggestions- my cooking is never an exact science, so what I can say is I marinated chix strips in a balsamic vinaigrette dressing for a few hours, threw in greased 9x13 dish; mixed up the stuffing- added extra stuffing (I bought stuffing in a bag- used approx 8-10oz), extra diced tomatoes, extra olive oil and a little bit of water, lots of dried basil, fresh diced garlic; let that soak. sprinkled parm. cheese on chix, moz. cheese, then stuffing mixture, topped with more parm. cheese and mozzarella- YUMMO!
