I use this stuffing technique for chicken, steak and pork chops. Be creative about what you put inside: try sautéed spinach and mushrooms or capers, parsley and lemon zest.
6 sun dried tomatoes halves in oil, drained and chopped 2 ounces fresh mozzarella, chopped 10 large basil leaves, chopped Zest from 1 lemon 2 8-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of extra fat 2 teaspoons olive oil Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and lemon zest. Taste and season with salt and pepper if desired.
Using a pairing knife, start a thickest part of chicken and make a pocket lengthwise in the chicken. Using fingers, stuff chicken with mozzarella filling. Repeat with remaining chicken breast. Season chicken with salt.
Heat a medium stainless steel skillet over medium high heat. Add olive oil and once hot, add chicken breasts. Sear on both sides until brown. Place chicken on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until centers are hot and reach 160 degrees on an instant read thermometer, about 15 to 20 minutes. Let chicken rest 5 minutes. Slice chicken into rounds and serve hot.
