Serves: 5
Total Calories: 101


4 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 pound sliced mushrooms, or more, if desired
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can crushed tomato (can use stewed)
1/2 cup Italian salad dressing or Russian Dressing
1 package dry onion soup mix
1 bay leaf


Place chicken breasts in a baking dish; top with sliced mushrooms. Add tomatoes. Mix dressing with onion soup mix and pour over. Toss in bay leaf. Bake, uncovered, one hour at 350°, basting frequently. Serve with rice or noodles. If too much liquid, drain some prior to serving. Remove bay leaf before serving.

Fun Fact: Virginia is one of four states technically designated as commonwealths (sharing the title with Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Kentucky). The word commonwealth dates from the fifteenth century. The original phrase "common-wealth" or "the common weal" comes from the old meaning of "wealth," which is "well-being." The term literally meant "common well-being." Thus commonwealth originally meant a state or nation-state governed for the common good as opposed to an authoritarian state governed for the benefit of a given class of owners.
