  • Make 3-inch-long cut in one long side of each chicken breast to form pocket, being careful to not cut all the way through to opposite side of chicken. Place chicken in shallow dish; drizzle with 1/4 cup dressing. Refrigerate 30 min. to marinate.
  • Heat oven to 375°F. Combine cracker crumbs, garlic, 1/4 cup basil and remaining dressing. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Spoon about 3 Tbsp. crumb mixture into pocket in each chicken breast; place on rimmed baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake 25 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF). Meanwhile, combine cheese and remaining basil. About 5 min. before chicken is done, cook tomatoes in saucepan on medium heat until heated through, stirring occasionally.
  • Drain tomatoes. Serve chicken topped with tomatoes and cheese mixture.


Substitute chopped fresh parsley or cilantro for the basil.
