I am all for EASY at this time of year!

Here's an easy one dish meal for you before all your intense holiday cooking...

I found this in my Hungry Girl 200 under 200 Cookbook. It's fabulous!

EZ Tomato Basil Chicken
adapted from Hungry Girl

1 lb. raw boneless chicken breast tenders (you could also cube/strip up 1 lb. worth of regular chicken breasts
1-1/2 cups (half a 20 oz can) crushed tomatoes with basil
1-1/2 cups thinly sliced onions
1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp. pepper
salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Bring a pan sprayed with non stick spray to high heat on the stove. Add onion and cook just until they begin to brown, about 3 minutes.

Pour half the tomatoes (one fourth of the can) in a medium baking pan. Lay chicken in the pan and top with onions.

Pour the rest of the tomatoes (another 1/4 of can) evenly over chicken and onion. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.

Allow chicken to cool and sauce to thicken slightly before serving.

Make 4 servings

Simply delicious. Plain buttered pasta with garlic bread on the side. Or a salad...very moist and flavorful. And exactly as she says...EZ!
