This dinner is quick enough for weeknights but elegant enough for entertaining. The chicken can be stuffed using a spoon, but a disposable piping bag is much easier. Save the chicken filets, which are super tender for a stir-fry or chicken fingers. Serve with a side salad and sauteed vegetables.

Stir together cheese, bread crumbs, tomatoes and basil.

Holding paring knife horizontally, insert into thick end of each chicken breast and wiggle back and forth to form pocket. Using disposable piping bag or small spoon, stuff each pocket with one-quarter of the cheese mixture. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

In ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken on both sides, about 6 minutes. Transfer to 400ºF (200°C) oven; bake until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 8 minutes.
