Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 2 tomatoes , diced (about 2 cups)
  • 1/3 cup packed fresh basil ribbons
  • 1 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese , divided
  • 6 (4 ounces each) skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • salt and fresh ground pepper , to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4- cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3- cup low sodium fat free chicken broth
  • 3 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, 1/2 cup cheese and basil; stir just until combined and set aside.
  • Pound each chicken breast to 1/4-inch thickness, being careful not to tear or rip through.
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Spoon previously prepared tomato mixture over each chicken breast. You don't have to use all the stuffing - any leftovers can be spooned over chicken right before baking.
  • Roll up the chicken breasts, wrapping them tightly, and secure ends with toothpicks.
  • Heat extra virgin olive oil in a stovetop and oven safe large skillet.
  • Add prepared chicken breasts to hot oil and cook over medium-high heat for about 6 minutes, or until lightly browned on all sides.
  • In the meantime, prepare the Balsamic sauce. In a medium bowl combine balsamic vinegar, chicken broth, garlic, and Italian seasoning; whisk until thoroughly combined.
  • Remove chicken from heat.
  • If you have some extra tomato mixture, spoon it over the chicken.
  • Pour prepared balsamic sauce over chicken.
  • Transfer to oven and bake for 20 minutes; remove from oven, flip the chicken over, and return to oven for 15 more minutes.
  • Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese and continue to bake for 5 more minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let stand for a few minutes.
  • Serve with pasta, rice, vegetables, or a fresh salad.
