Ingredients:

3 tbsp. low-fat/light ricotta cheese

3 tbsp. shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 cup chopped onion

One 4-oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast cutlet, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness

1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper

3 fresh basil leaves

2 thin slices plum tomato

Directions:

In a medium bowl, combine ricotta cheese, 1 tbsp. mozzarella cheese, and 1/8 tsp. garlic powder. Mix until uniform.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add onion, and cook and stir until lightly browned, 2 - 3 minutes. Stir onion into ricotta mixture.

Remove skillet from heat. Clean, if needed. Respray and return to medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt, pepper, and remaining 1/8 tsp. garlic powder. Cook chicken for about 3 minutes per side, until cooked through.

Reduce heat to medium. Top chicken with ricotta mixture, and sprinkle with remaining 2 tbsp. mozzarella cheese. Top with basil and tomato. Cover and cook for 1 minute, or until cheese has melted.
