I wanted to make an entree based on Caprese salad ingredients: bocconcini cheese, tomatoes and fresh basil. This recipe turned out so easy and delicious, I put the dish together in 5 minutes, and then bake it for 40 minutes. It's easy to adjust the recipe for any number of servings and received rave reviews from my guests.

  • Portion size 6 servings
  • Credits : scudvi


  • 6 boneless chicken breasts
  • 4 oz bocconcini cheese
  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes
  • 6 leaves fresh basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 350ºF. Rinse chicken breasts, then place in oiled baking dish. Make a pocket in chicken, by slicing 3/4 of the way down one side. Stuff pocket with a leaf of basil, (or 1/2 tsp dried basil), 1 tbsp sundried tomatoes, and slice of bocconcini. Bake for 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Serve over rice or pasta. Enjoy!
