Chicken Stuffed with Mozzarella, Tomato and Basil Recipe: Makes 2 servings INGREDIENTS • 2 (4/5 ounce)chicken breasts • 4 ounces Sliced part skim mozzarella cheese • ½ cup Grape tomatoes; sliced in half • ¼ cup Basil leaves • 1 3/4 teaspoons Italian seasoning • ¼ tsp salt • ½ tsp pepper • 2 teaspoons olive oil
DIRECTIONS Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, cut slits across the chicken breast about 3/4 of the way through the chicken breast being careful not to cut all the way through.
Depending on the size of your chicken breast, you're going to want around 6 to 8 slits per chicken breast. Stuff each slit with a slice of mozzarella cheese, half a grape tomato and a basil leaf. Place chicken breasts in a baking dish that has been coated with non-stick baking spray. Brush each chicken breast with olive oil. Sprinkle each chicken breast with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 30 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 160 degrees.
