What’s For Dinner? Bruschetta Chicken Bake

Print

Thursday nights are curling nights for my husband.  He alternates weekly between the early and late draw and, on the early nights, I need to have dinner cooked and ready for him to eat and head right back out the door.  5:00 always seems to be when my kids are at their absolute worst so I need quick, easy recipes that require very little watching.  Bonus if it is something I can prep while the baby naps and then just throw it into the oven!

I discovered this recipe one night when I had no idea what to make for dinner.  After staring into the pantry for inspiration, I eventually pulled a box of Stove Top stuffing down from the shelves and was happy to discover a recipe on the back of the box with ingredients I already had in the house.  It came together so quickly (prep time is 10 minutes) and was a lot tastier then I expected.  I think it is one of the easiest things I make and is my go to when I am feeling particularly lazy and don’t want to cook.
