Chicken Capri

My sister is doing the South Beach Diet and tried this recipe the other day and said it was really good. So much so that her kids even ate it! I'm going to give it a shot after I go to the store, but here you go....

Chicken Capri

1 Cup Reduced fat ricotta cheese
1/2 t. dried oregano
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
Mix this together and set aside.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 t. garlic powder\
2 T. olive oil
1 Cup crushed tomatoes (blended for those picky kids like James and Ashley)
4 slices mozzerella cheese
Sprinkle garlic powder on chicken. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Cook the chicken for about 12 minutes per side. Place chicken in baking dish and allow to cool.
preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spoon 1/4 c. of the cheese mixture and 1/4 c. tomatoes onto each chicken breast. Top with 1 slice mozz. cheese. Bake for 20 minutes.
Oh also the can of tomatoes that I used said Chili ready. So they must have had chili powder in it, It added a little extra flavor. But you don't have to use that i just thought i'd give ya another idea to sprinkle in chili powder.
