Bruschetta 'n Cheese-Stuffed Chicken Breasts

I made this for dinner last night and it was great, I just served it with some fried rice that I made with some left over Basmati rice from Saturday night, added some soy and hoisin sauce to the rice along with some vegies.

This recipe would even be great for entertaining as you could dress it up with some "flash" looking side dishes.

As I am in Australia I didn't have all the brand name ingredients so I just substituted with local brands.

What You Need!

1 can (14-1/2 oz.) Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
1-1/4 cups KRAFT Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese, divided
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1 pkg. (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix for Chicken
8 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (2 lb.)
1/3 cup KRAFT Roasted Red Pepper Italian with Parmesan Dressing

Make It!

HEAT oven to 350ºF.

MIX tomatoes, 1/2 cup cheese and basil in medium bowl. Add stuffing mix; stir just until moistened.

PLACE 2 chicken breasts in large freezer-weight resealable plastic bag. Pound with meat mallet or side of heavy can until chicken is 1/4 inch thick. Remove from bag; place, top-sides down, on cutting board. Repeat with remaining chicken. Spread chicken with stuffing mixture. Starting at 1 narrow end, tightly roll up each breast. Place, seam-sides down, in 13x9-inch baking dish. Drizzle with dressing.

BAKE 40 min. or until chicken is done (165°F). Sprinkle with remaining cheese; bake 5 min. or until melted.

Or here is the link to the Kraft food site that I got it from.

What A Waste Of A Weekend

Well Friday night I didn't get anything achieved and Saturday morning got up early with all intentions of getting everything done in the AM, but a friend of SO's called in and put us an hour behind, so didn't end up getting home till after 12 and by then footy was on the TV and that put paid to the rest of the day grrrrrr.

Sunday was a lovely day but I am rereading the Harry Potter books and got sucked into reading most of the day, so didn't get any stitching done at all so I am a bit pi**ed off about that.

But today is a public holiday in Perth so I am going to quickly run the vacum cleaner around, clean the bathroom and hopefully then sit down and get some stitching done on my UFO (posting my progress here is certainly an incentive). So fingers crossed.

On a totally different subject.......GO THE SAINTS, whoo hoo 5 in a row. I am off to see them play in Melbourne in a couple of weeks so I hope I don't put the mocker on them :-)

Stitching Update

Well I managed to get some stitching done on my UFO last weekend, not much, but when I started stitching on this piece again it felt great.
We have a 3 day weekend again this weekend so hopefully if I get my housework done Friday night, groceries Saturday morning I can get some more done on it.

Thursday, April 16, 2009

Well I have joined a group to finish up my cross stitching UFO's (unfinished ??) not sure what the "O" stands for, I must find out LOL.
I have decided to finish off one at a time and this is the first one..............I have had it lying around for about 6 years now and it will be fabulous when it is finished.

I don't get much time for stitching but I have promised myself to at least get a couple of hours in evey weekend.

Third Week In A Row

Well I have to make the most of it LOL, and with living in Perth it is all the better when we beat a WA side LOL.

I still have 2 days left of this fabulous long weekend, and what to do??

Sunday, April 5, 2009


Well the boys have done it for two weeks in a row, and guess who didn't tip them in her footy tipping comp!! But hey beating Adelaide at home, not many teams do that!
Well done guys and keep it up.

Now on a totally different topic, what am I going to do Sunday....well I have Desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters to watch from last week. Might do a little housework (if I dont' keep on top of it, by next Friday it is out of control LOL) and maybe read a little, knit or get some cross stitch done. My mojo has been missing for cross stitch for a couple of months now, I feel like doing some but just can't be bothered.

Oh and only a four day working week this week yipeee!!!!!!
