  • Heat balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan to a slow boil. Allow to boil for 15 minutes, watching carefully to prevent burning. Cook until vinegar has reduced to half the original volume. Allow balsamic reduction to cool completely.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Place 1/4 cup basil leaves, 2 ounces mozzarella cheese, and 1/2 a tomato on each piece of chicken. Roll chicken up and secure with toothpicks.

  • Heat olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add stuffed chicken breasts to skillet and sear on all sides, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

  • Transfer skillet to the oven and bake until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Allow stuffed chicken breasts to rest 5 minutes. Drizzle with balsamic reduction before serving.

I really enjoyed making this recipe. I wasnt able to marinate for four hours only about two so i added extra seasoning to be safe. I also used fresh mozzarella and baked my chicken for about 17 minutes instead of 10 because my breasts were pretty large even after i pounded them. The balsamic reduction definitely added some great additional flavors to the dish!! Read More

So delicious!!! I'm definitely putting this in my keeper file! Due to poor planning on my part I only ended up marinating the chicken about 30 minutes but even so it had plenty of flavor. Very fresh summery flavors that are sure to impress your guests. I used a bottled balsamic glaze (instead of making it per the recipe) because I had some on hand. I ended up cooking the chicken about 20 mins because they were rather large pieces and it came out SO juicy! I also used fresh mozzarella. Read More

This was a great recipe! The only thing I did different was I cut the breast in half and stuff them because it was too hard to roll up everything together. Read More

I made this recipe for a family dinner. I couldn t marinate it for 4 hours so I made more marinade and flipped the chicken a few times. This was a big hit! So much so it s been requested again already. Two thumbs up!!! Read More
