4bonelessskinless chicken breast halves
salt & pepper to taste
1bunch of fresh basil
8ozfresh mozzarellacut into 8 slices
1/4cgrated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400 F.
If you are using a casserole dish, grease it.
Take each chicken breasts and "butterfly" it. You do that by using a sharp knife to cut horizontally through the breast leaving about 1/4"-ish uncut.
Open up the chicken so they lay flat and sprinkle the Italian seasoning and salt and pepper over the insides of the chicken.
On one half of each piece of chicken put one slice of mozzarella and a few basil leaves.
Drizzle 1 tsp of the balsamic vinegar over the basil and fold the chicken back up.
Sprinkle more Italian seasoning and salt and pepper over the tops of the chicken.
Now place the chicken into your casserole dish or cast iron skillet.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink.
Once the chicken is done, remove it from the oven and turn the broiler on.
Take the other slices of cheese and place one slice on on top of each chicken breast.
Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top, and pop it under the broiler. Broil for about 5 minutes until the cheese is browned and bubbly.
I actually added another teaspoon of balsamic vinegar before going under the broiler to give it a little extra something.Serve these delicious cheesy masterpieces with steamed broccoli and a side salad and love dinner tonight!
