  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 ¾ lbs)
  • can shredded-mozzarella, divided
  • ¾ can ricotta
  • tbsp freshly-grated Parmesan, divided
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive-oil
  • can marinara
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped-basil, or more for serving
  • 1 large egg
  • freshly-ground black-pepper
  • ½ tsp Italian-seasoning
  • kosher-salt


  • Preheat oven to 375°. In a bowl, combine ricotta, ½ cup mozzarella, ¼ cup parmesan, egg and basil. Season with pepper and salt.
  • Cut a pocket in chicken-breast. Stuff each with 2 tbsp marinara-sauce & ¼ of ricotta mix.
  • Arrange stuffed-chicken at the bottom of a 9x13" baking-dish. Season with pepper and salt. Sprinkle with Italian-seasoning & drizzle with oil.
  • Bake until chicken is nearly cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 155°, about 25minutes or 35minutes for bigger breasts. Discard excess juices at the pan.
  • Change oven to broil & top chicken with remaining 1 cup marinara, ¾ cup mozzarella & 2 tbsp parmesan. Broil till cheese is golden & bubbly and chicken-reaches an internal temperature of 165° for 4-5minutes or longer.
  • Garnish with more basil before serving for more taste.
