Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Main Courses


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup minced tomato
  • 1/4 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • Salt and pepper

Slice a deep pocket in middle of each chicken breast. In a bowl, combine tomato, cheese, and basil and season with salt and pepper. Stuff chicken breast with mixture and secure sides with wooden toothpicks soaked in water or tie closed with kitchen twine. Wipe off outsides of chicken breasts with paper towel. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat until hot. Cook stuffed chicken breasts 1 minute on each side or just until golden brown. Transfer chicken to shallow baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
