2
Tbsp.  KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing
1-1/2
lb.  boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips

Make It

PREPARE Dinners in large saucepan as directed on package. Meanwhile, heat dressing in large skillet on medium heat. Add chicken and half the onions; cook 5 to 8 min. or until chicken is done, stirring frequently.

HEAT oven to 350ºF. Spoon Dinners into 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Top with chicken mixture. Blend tomatoes and jalapeño pepper in blender until smooth; spread over chicken mixture. Top with cheddar; cover.

BAKE 30 min. or until casserole is heated through, uncovering after 25 min. Top with cilantro and remaining onions.
