Number of Servings: 4


    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, about 4 to 6 ounces each
    8 sun dried tomatoes, drained
    1/2 bunch basil
    1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
    1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    3/4 cup low fat chicken broth


Cut a deep horizontal pocket in the side of each chicken breast. Make the pocket as large as you can without piercing the top or bottom of the breast. Place 2 slices of tomato and about 4 basil leaves in the pocket of each chicken breast. Secure the pocket with toothpicks threading along the side to close.

Heat the oil in a heavy oven-proof skillet until it begins to smoke.

Cook each side of the chicken until golden brown.

Add the vinegar and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and gently simmer the chicken for 2 or 3 minutes per side until cooked through.

Remove the chicken breasts from the skillet and keep warm.

Continue to cook the sauce until it is reduced to a thick syrup.
Taste the sauce and and season with salt and pepper. Spoon the sauce over each chicken breast.

Serving Size: Makes 4 servings

  • I didn't have all the ingredients to make this as suggested - and my hob's not working, so I put the basil and fresh tomatoes in the chicken breasts and cooked them for 30 mins in a baking bag in the oven. Very simple, and delicious too. I'm sure the original recipe is just as tasty. - 5/12/13
