How to Make MOZZARELLA-BASIL CHICKEN WITH ROASTED TOMATOES

Step-by-Step

  1. Make a cut in one long side of each chicken breast, being careful to not cut through to opposite side. Fill each pocket with 2 basil leaves and 1 each cheese slice and sun-dried tomato.
  2. Place chicken on one side of a rimmed baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray; add tomatoes to other side of baking sheet. Brush chicken evenly with 1 Tbsp. dressing.
  3. Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 30 minutes or until chicken is done.
  4. Cut remaining basil leaves into thin slices. Top tomatoes with basil and remaining dressing; toss lightly. Serve chicken topped with tomato mixture.
  5. NOTE: This is good served with hot cooked rice.
