Ingredients

Salt and ground pepper to taste

1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, minced

2 tbsp. olive oil

2 tbsp. bread crumbs, dried

2 large garlic cloves, minced

Additional fresh basil leaves (to garnish)


Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F. Season chicken with salt and pepper.

Step 2

In medium bowl, combine basil and remaining ingredients (except garnish); mix well. Set aside 2 teaspoons of basil stuffing. The remaining mixture will be used to stuff the chicken breast.

Step 4

Place chicken in 9-inch square baking dish. Bake 35 to 40 minutes until cooked through and golden.

To serve, garnish with fresh basil leaves.
