Chicken Margherita

For a little garlic flavor, season the chicken with a sprinkle of garlic powder in addition to the salt and pepper!


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, (about 1 lb.)
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 cups Ragu® Traditional Sauce
  • 4 slices fresh or packaged mozzarella cheese, (about 4 oz.)
  • 2 Tbsp. thinly sliced fresh basil leaves


  1. Season chicken, if desired, with salt and black pepper. Heat olive oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and brown chicken, turning once, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in Sauce and simmer covered 5 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Top chicken with cheese, then let stand until cheese is melted, about 1 minute. Garnish with basil.
  3. Serve, if desired, with hot cooked penne pasta topped with additional Sauce, heated.
