    Default Chicken Capri

    Chicken Capri
    Recipe from The South Beach DietŪ Quick & Easy Cookbook.
    Serves 4

    This dish tastes like it took you all day, but it can be done in 30 minutes. The chicken goes especially well with a crisp garden salad.

    1 cup reduced-fat ricotta cheese
    1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
    1 large garlic clove
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 cup crushed tomatoes
    4 slices reduced-fat mozzarella cheese

    In a blender or food processor, combine the ricotta with the oregano, salt, and pepper. Process to blend.

    Rub the chicken with the garlic clove. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 12 minutes per side. Place the chicken breasts, side by side, in a large baking dish and allow to cool.

    Preheat the oven to 350°F.

    Spoon 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture and 1/4 cup tomatoes onto each chicken breast. Top each chicken breast with 1 slice mozzarella. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion of a breast registers 170°F and the juices run clear.

    Thanks for yet another winner, PB! I made this last night and it was really good. I cranked the oven up to 400 for the last 6-10 minutes so that the mozerella got a little brown and bubbly. Mmmmmmm..... I served it with brussels sprouts and thick crusty garlic bread.

    Just a tip to make it simpler...I found it unnecessary to put the ricotta and seasonings in a food processor. Just stirred it up really well in a bowl. Didn't feel like dirtying anything else up, lol.
