  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Line rimmed pan with foil; spray with cooking spray. Place chicken breasts flat on cutting surface. With knife parallel to cutting surface, cut lengthwise slit in each chicken breast, forming a pocket, keeping other 3 sides intact. Stuff each chicken breast with 2 tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese, pressing edges of each chicken breast to seal.
  • 2
    In shallow dish or pie plate, mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and the pepper. On work surface, brush both sides of chicken breasts with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, and coat both sides in bread crumb mixture, pressing slightly. Transfer chicken to pan; sprinkle with any remaining bread crumb mixture.
  • 3
    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center (at least 165°F).
  • 4
    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix tomatoes, basil, garlic and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Top cooked chicken breasts with tomato mixture before serving.

Expert Tips

  • Shredded Italian cheese blend is a great substitute for the shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • If you prefer, use canned diced tomatoes in place of fresh tomatoes. Drain them before adding to basil, garlic, salt and olive oil.
