Crock-Pot Chicken Brushetta Bake
I was rifling through my kitchen pantry when I spotted a couple of boxes of Stove Top stuffing and noticed there was a recipe on the back of the box for Brushetta Chicken Bake and as I was reading the recipe the wheels in my head started spinning and I thought to myself that I bet I could adapt this recipe to use my casserole crock pot. So I gathered the ingredients together (chicken, stuffing mix, canned tomatoes, garlic, mozzarella cheese) and then I snipped a some fresh basil from the potted basil I grow in my kitchen window.
The original recipe from Kraft calls for dried basil but I don’t think brushetta is right without fresh basil. It just brings that POP of freshness that dried herbs cannot. Even if you don’t grow fresh basil at home most grocery stores carry little containers of fresh herbs in the produce department or you can buy frozen herb cubes or even tubes of herbs you squeeze out.
But in a pinch dried basil will work too!
