Let's Make It
Cook and stir bacon in Dutch oven or large deep skillet on medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Remove drippings from pan; reserve 1 Tbsp. drippings for later use.
Add chicken, in batches, to pan; cook 3 min. on each side or until browned on both sides. Return all chicken to pan. Stir in salsa and broth. Bring to boil; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 15 min. Meanwhile, mix masa dough, cheese and reserved bacon drippings; shape into 18 balls, using about 1 Tbsp. dough for each.
Add dough balls to chicken mixture; cook 5 to 8 min. or until dumplings and chicken are done (165ºF). Remove from heat. Stir in bacon and cilantro.
Serve with a crisp mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing to round out the meal.
Dry corn masa is a great substitute for the fresh masa in this tasty recipe. Just mix 3/4 cup dry masa with enough water (about 1/2 cup) to make soft dough.
Stir in 2 cups cooked green beans with the dough balls.
