Comments

This is a simple and quick way to serve chicken.

Ingredients

1 pound chicken breast, boneless and skinless

1 cup diced tomatoes, canned, drained

1/2 cup marinara sauce, already prepared, jar or deli

1/2 cup cheese, mozzarella, low moisture and part skim milk, grated

1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated

1 tablespoon oregano, fresh, chopped

1 tablespoon basil, fresh, chopped

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper, black, ground

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and herbs together in a small bowl. Carefully cut open each chicken breast lengthwise but don't cut all the way through, just enough to open it up like a book. Spoon tomato and cheese mixture onto one side of each breast. Fold the other side on top and secure with toothpicks. Season outside of chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add oil and chicken to skillet and brown for 4 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from skillet and place in a baking dish. Top chicken with the Parmesan cheese. Place in oven and bake for approximately 8 to 10 minutes until cooked through. Meanwhile, heat the marinara sauce in a microwavable bowl for approximately 40 seconds and serve on top of the chicken.
