Pesto-Stuffed Chicken

Time: ★★☆☆☆

Cooking Level: ★★☆☆☆

  • 3 chicken breasts

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon pepper

  • 12 sun-dried tomatoes

  • 3 tablespoons pesto

  • 3 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded

  • 3 tablespoons oil for pan frying

  1. On a cutting board, salt and pepper both sides of each chicken breast with approximately ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper, per side.

  2. Slice each chicken breast horizontally along the side to create a pocket for the filling.

  3. Stuff each breast with approximately one ounce of mozzarella cheese, one tablespoon pesto and four sun-dried tomatoes. If the chicken breast does not close fully with the filling, try securing with a wooden toothpick.

  4. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.

  5. Pan fry for about 5-8 minutes, per side, depending on the size of the chicken breasts, until the cheese is melted and the chicken is cooked through.
