  1. Combine tomatoes, broth, tomato paste, orange rind, salt and pepper in a large bowl; set aside.
  2. Lightly coat chicken with breadcrumbs. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook until golden brown, about 6 minutes per side. Remove to a plate.
  3. Heat remaining oil in skillet. Add green pepper, onion and mushrooms; saute 7 to 12 minutes, or until mushroom liquid evaporates and vegetables are tender.
  4. Return chicken and any juices to pan; spoon vegetables over top. Add tomato mixture. Cover, bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until chicken is done, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese; cover and cook until cheese melts, about 1 minute.
