Bruschetta Bake!

I love all things Bruschetta, especially when it comes from Olive Garden! Unfortunately We can't go there as much as I would like (every day). While searching the web for some ideas to remedy this situation I cam across this recipe.

Our version in Red

Ingredients :

1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cubed - already cooked, cut up and seasoned with pepper and garlic salt.
1 teaspoon salt
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 (6 ounce) box chicken-flavored dry bread stuffing mix - Herb flavored stuffing
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese - Fiesta shredded mixed cheese
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning - Did not use this ingredient


1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.
2.Toss the cubed chicken with the salt in a large bowl - Omitted this step. Place the chicken in a layer into the bottom of the baking dish. Stir together tomatoes, water, garlic, and stuffing mix in a large bowl; set aside to soften. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the chicken, then sprinkle with the Italian seasoning. Spread the softened stuffing mixture on top. - Obviously I did not put the Italian seasoning in the dish, but I did add more cheese on top of the stuffing. I love cheese!!!
3.Bake uncovered until the chicken cubes have turned white and are no longer pink in the center, about 30 minutes. Since the chicken was already cooked I cooked it in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes. Just long enough to melt the cheese.

The trick to awesome bruschetta is in the basil. So if you don't use an italian seasoning mix just use basil! Looks yummy I might try it tonight.
