Mozzarella Chicken

This recipe is courtesy of my friend, Erin. It's a great recipe, and I like to tell myself it's relatively healthy.

1 c. ricotta cheese
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
4 chicken breasts
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 T extra virigin olive oil
1 c. crushed tomatoes
4 slices mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine ricotta with oregano, salt & pepper. Set aside. Heat oil in large skillet. Rub chicken with garlic powder. Cook chicken for 12 minutes per side. Place breasts in baking dish. Cool. Spoon 1/4 cup of the ricotta mixture and 1/4 cup crushed tomatoes on each breast. Top each with 1 slice mozzarella. Bake 20 minutes.
