Being a Diabetic myself, as soon as I saw that this had come fro the Canadian Diabetic Assoc. I knew I had to try it. It's nice and flavorful. I used Part Skim Mozerella cheese so that cut a bit more fat off too. Great recipe Dorothy thanks for sharing it!

Derf I loved this recipe! Adding the spices and the garlic into the whirled tomatoes really charms the taste buds. I prefer my chicken baked, so I place the boneless chicken in a baking dish, sprinkle the tops with a little dehydrated garlic, and pour the sauce over the meat. I bake it at 350 for about 45-50 minutes uncovered depending on the size of the chicken. Sometimes I simmer the sauce on the stovetop until slightly thickened before baking. I used part skim mozzarella as directed. Sometimes I leave the mozzarella off, and use a little Parmesan Cheese when serving. Plain is wonderful too. Over a little linguini even better. Thanks for a great recipe Derf. I really enjoy making it.
