Herbed Tomatoes, Chicken & Rice

This recipe comes from the kraft food website under their budget healthy living recipes... they're cheap & guilt free. This has always been one of my favorite cooking websites (ties with Here is the link:

James and I really enjoyed this recipe, James even more so than I. There was a little crunchiness in the brown rice because I didn't have instant and so I tried to adapt the recipe to regular brown rice and I didn't nail it. One thing to be said about this recipe is that it is pretty tasty, very cheap, and takes under 45 minutes from start to finish.

1/4 cup Italian Dressing

4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 can (28 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained

1 cup water

2 cups instant brown rice, uncooked

1 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

1 fresh tomato, chopped

2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro

1 avocado (optional)

Heat dressing in large skillet on medium heat. Add chicken and garlic; cover. Cook 5 min. on each side or until chicken is browned on both sides. Remove chicken from skillet; set aside.

Add canned tomatoes and water to skillet; stir in rice. Bring to boil; simmer, uncovered, on low heat 10 min. Return chicken to skillet. Top with cheese; cover.

Cook 5 min. or until chicken is done; top with remaining ingredients.
