    I also used fresh mozzarella and omitted the sun-dried tomatoes (picky kids). I added prosciutto on the inside and used Italian dressing instead of the balsamic dressing on the outside of the chicken. The boys loved it! I was told to "keep this in the rotation" of our dinner menu!

    Delicious but a few suggestions. I used a hunk of Fresh Mozzarella and cut slices from this. Seasoned the inside of the chicken with what I like. Only cooked the chicken 25 minutes and I used 2 large chicken breasts. Would use even more cheese, more fresh basil inside and on the grape tomatoes.
