Take your go-to Chicken Parmesan recipe – you know, the one everybody in your family loves – to the next level of delicious flavor by stuffing it with a tasty surprise. That’s right— we’ve stuffed this Chicken Parm with mozzarella, fresh basil, and sun-dried tomatoes that make every bite burst with delight.
This recipe combines two of our favorite Italian and Italian-American dishes: chicken parmigiana, and caprese anything! The meeting of marinara and sun-dried tomatoes is the perfect blend of the full range of tomato flavor, and of course we can never resist adding extra cheese wherever we can. (It just works out that mozzarella and Parmesan are our faves!)
Nervous about making that pocket in the chicken breast, or afraid that the whole thing will fall apart? Don’t be! Your butcher can cut those pouches for you— all you have to do is ask! Then use toothpicks to secure the breasts after you stuff them. (Just be sure to remove them after you fry and before you bake!)
This dish is a great way of sneaking more vegetables into your family’s diet. Try a stuffing of chopped spinach and mozzarella, or experiment with your favorite leafy greens and soft, melty cheeses.
