Prep Time Cook Time Total Time Servings
15 mins 25 mins 40 mins 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (225g)
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes (75g)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (25g)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves (10g)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (30ml)
  • Toothpicks for securing the chicken

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a bowl, combine the shredded mozzarella cheese, diced tomatoes, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped fresh basil leaves, dried oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well to create the stuffing mixture.
  3. Lay the chicken breasts flat on a clean surface. Use a sharp knife to cut a pocket into each chicken breast, being careful not to cut all the way through. The pocket should be large enough to hold the stuffing.
  4. Stuff each chicken breast with the cheese and tomato mixture, dividing it equally among the breasts. Secure the openings with toothpicks to prevent the stuffing from falling out.
  5. Heat olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the stuffed chicken breasts to the skillet, seam side down. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side until the chicken is golden brown.
  6. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  7. Remove the toothpicks from the chicken breasts and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
  8. Serve the Cheese and Tomato Stuffed Chicken Breast with your favorite side dishes, such as roasted vegetables or a fresh salad.
