Ingredients

  • 2 Chicken Breasts (approx. 1 lb)
  • 2 TBSP Italian Seasoning divided
  • 6 oz Fresh Mozzarella Cheese - sliced approx. ¼ inch (approx. 4 slices)
  • 2 Small Tomatoes (approx. 4-8 thin slices)
  • 12 Basil Leaves (more for garnish, optional)
  • Drizzle Olive Oil
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • Cherry Tomatoes (optional, only if you want to roast some on the side of your chicken breasts)

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350F and line your sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Slice your mozzarella cheese and tomatoes. Drizzle a little of olive oil over it.
  • Slice your chicken breasts in half so that you have four thin breasts.
    Carefully place your hand on top of the breast to apply a little pressure while you cut, this will help keep your knife straight and even so you get four even thin chicken breasts.
  • Lay your chicken breasts on your parchment paper. You will want at least an inch or so between each. Sprinkle ½ of your Italian Seasoning (1 TBSP) on top of each chicken breast.
  • Layer your cheese (1 slice), tomatoes (1-2 slices) and basil (3 leaves) inside of your chicken breasts on one end so that you can fold over the other side like a book. (If you want to secure your fold, you can stick in a tooth pick through to keep it from possibly sliding off.)
    Sprinkle the remainder of the Italian seasoning and salt on top of each chicken breasts.
  • (Optional) Add on your cherry tomatoes and lightly drizzle the pan with olive oil.
  • Bake at 350F for 15-17 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and your cheese is melted. Garnish with fresh basil leaves.
