A quick and easy dinner that tastes amazing!


  • 1 c. diced tomatoes, canned
  • 1/4 c. mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbs. fresh basil
  • 2 chicken breast, skin-on
  • 1/2 c. tomato sauce
  • 2 clove garlic


Pound chicken breast to about ½-inch thickness. Combine diced tomatoes, chopped mozzarella cheese, and finely chopped basil in a bowl. Divide mixture between the chicken breasts, and press into the chicken.

Combine tomato sauce and minced garlic in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken topped with tomato/mozzarella mixture. Bring the sauce to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook for about 15 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through (no pink when cut into).
