Ingredients

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Mozzarella cheese; sliced
Grape tomatoes; sliced in half
Fresh basil leaves
Italian seasoning - or your favorite seasonings! Garlic powder, fresh garlic or even oregano are also good.
Salt and Pepper
Olive oil

Directions

Step 1: How to get the Hasselback Slices

Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, cut slits across the chicken breast about ¾ of the way through being careful not to cut all the way through.
Depending on the size of your chicken breast, you're going to want around 6 to 8 slits per chicken breast.

Step 2: How to Stuff the Chicken

Stuff each slit with a slice of mozzarella cheese, half a grape tomato and a basil leaf.

Step 3: Baking Instructions

Place the chicken breasts in a baking dish that has been coated with non-stick baking spray.
Brush each chicken breast with olive oil.
Sprinkle each chicken breast with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.
You can also use your favorite seasonings: garlic powder, oregano...it's okay to be creative!
Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 30 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees.
Use a Digital Meat Thermometer to check the temperature when cooking chicken.
