Easy Bistro Chicken
Serves 4
Prep time: 5 minutes; Cook time: 20 minutes

2 tsp olive oil
3 cups sliced mushrooms
1 bell pepper, sliced
1 small onion, chopped
1 (15 oz) can stewed tomatoes, undrained
1/4 cup reduced-fat Italian salad dressing
1/4 cup tomato paste
4 small boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound)
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
2 slices turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled

In a large skillet, sauté the mushrooms, peppers and onion in olive oil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the tomatoes and their liquid, the salad dressing and tomato paste.

Place chicken on top of the sauce and cover with a lid. Reduce heat and simmer 12 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Sprinkle with cheese and bacon. Simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
