Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. First, preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Now, cut each chicken breast in half, leaving about 1/4 connected. Drizzle with olive oil, and season generously with salt, pepper, and italian seasoning.
  3. Then, fill the chicken breast with 1-2 slices tomato, 1-2 slices mozzarella, and basil leaves. Use a few toothpicks to seal it shut, and place into a baking dish.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes, then top with parmesan and bake an additional 10-15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. For crispier parmesan, broil for a few minutes before removing from the oven.
  5. Once the internal temperature reaches 165F, remove from the oven and allow to rest for a few minutes before cutting into it.
  6. If desired, drizzle with balsamic glaze before serving.

Winner winner, chicken dinner!
