4
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1
tablespoon butter or margarine
2
teaspoons packed brown sugar
1/4
teaspoon salt
4
boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/4 pounds)
1/4
cup water
4
slices tomato
4
ounces Havarti or Swiss cheese, cut into 1/8-inch slices
1
tablespoon chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  1. Cook garlic in butter in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-low heat 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly, just until garlic begins to turn golden brown. Stir in brown sugar until melted.
  2. Sprinkle salt over chicken. Add chicken to skillet. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, turning once, until brown. Add water. Cook over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until chicken is glazed and no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut and liquid has evaporated. Chicken will be golden brown. Watch carefully to prevent scorching.
  3. Top each chicken piece with tomato slice, cheese and basil. Cover and heat 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
