Bruschetta Stuffed Chicken

For me this is a go to meal at my house because I usually have all the ingredients. Its quite simple and both kids an adults will enjoy this!

Bruschetta Stuffed Chicken Yields 2 servings (double everything for 4)

Ingredients
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup of bread cubed (can use stuffing or any old crusty bread)
1 medium sized tomato diced
½ cup feta
1 tablespoon Parmesan
¼ cup Mozzarella
¼ cup olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon fresh basil, for dried use 1 teaspoon
¼ cup left over marinara or plain tomato sauce
Salt and pepper

Directions
Preheat oven to 350
Place chicken breast in freezer bag and pound to a ¼ -inch thickness.
Mix tomatoes, bread, feta, parmesan, garlic and basil in bowl.
Depending on how juicy the tomatoes are, you may need to drizzle
the mixture with a little olive oil. You want it moist but not soggy.

Season breast with salt and pepper and then spread about 2 tablespoons
of mixture on chicken. (more or less depending on size of chicken breast)
Roll chicken breast up and secure with tooth picks.

Place chicken in a baking dish and if extra stuffing remains, spread around chicken.
Bake chicken for 30 to 45 minutes or when chicken is done (165*)
When the chicken has about 5 minutes left, spread tomato sauce on top of breasts
and sprinkle with the mozzarella.
