Bruschetta Pesto Chicken Bake

I tend to go through what I like to call "food phases" and this week I'm all about chicken and casseroles. I recently found a recipe for a Bruschetta Chicken Bake on the Kraft Kitchens website that looked really good but I wanted to add pesto to it since we are big fans of pesto chicken. So, I mixed up the recipe a touch and the end result was amazing!

Bruschetta Pesto Chicken Bake
Serves 6
Cal 301, Carbs 26.5, Fat 8.8, Fiber .5, Protein 30

1.5lbs boneless skinless chicken, cut into chunks
1/4 cup basil pesto
1 can petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1 box chicken stuffing mix
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1/2 cup water

Pre-Heat oven to 400 degrees

Mix tomatoes, stuffing mix, water and garlic powder just until stuffing mix is moistened.

Arrange chicken in a casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray; mix in pesto and half of the shredded cheese. Top with stuffing mixture and remaining cheese.

Bake for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Enjoy!
