Ingredients

  • 4 Chicken Breasts
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil
  • 1/3 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • Juice of Half Lemon
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 1 tsp Dried Basil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 2 Peaches pitted and cut into thin slices (peeled if desired)
  • 8 oz. Fresh Mozzarella cut into thin slices
  • ½ cup Fresh Basil about 20 leaves
  • Balsamic Glaze for serving

Instructions

  • Place chicken breasts in a large zip lock bag. In a small bowl combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, salt, pepper, dried basil, and garlic. Pour over chicken and let marinate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet or large baking dish with parchment paper (or aluminum foil), set aside.
  • Remove marinated chicken and place on cutting board. Using a small paring knife, make slits horizontally in each chicken, being careful not to go all the way through. You should have 4-5 slits per chicken breast.
  • Stuff each slit with a peach slice, piece of mozzarella, and a basil leaf. Repeat with remaining slits on each piece of chicken.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until temperature on thermometer reads 165 degrees F.
  • Serve warm with balsamic drizzle and extra basil on top.
