  • Author: Girl Versus Dough
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 4 to 6 servings 1x


  • 4 (6 to 8 oz) chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 (9 oz) pouch Progresso® Recipe Starters Fire Roasted Tomato sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh basil and cooked angel hair pasta, for serving (optional)


  1. Slice chicken breasts in half widthwise; pound out with a meat tenderizer to an even thickness. Toss chicken pieces in a large bowl with olive oil and salt and pepper.
  2. Heat grill to medium-high heat (about 375°F to 400°F). Place a large cast-iron skillet on one side of the grill, and place chicken pieces on the other side of the grill. Cook chicken 3 to 4 minutes on each side until grill marks appear.
  3. Transfer chicken to heated skillet. Top evenly with sauce, then sprinkle with cheese. Cover grill and cook 5 to 7 minutes until cheese is melted, sauce is bubbling and chicken is fully cooked through.
  4. Serve chicken on top of pasta sprinkled with fresh basil, if desired.
