5 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes

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

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. Cook and stir onion until lightly browned, 2 - 3 minutes. Stir onion into ricotta cheese mixture.

If needed, clean skillet. Re-spray 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. Evenly 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. Dig in!
