1 Quick and Easy Spaghetti Sauce, prepared (recipe here)
3 pounds large skinless, boneless chicken breast (6 pieces)
salt to taste, optional
pepper to taste, optional
8 oz ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons Basil and Garlic Seasoning Blend
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9x13 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. (if spaghetti sauce was not prepared in advance, begin making that sauce now)
- Slit a lengthwise pocket in each chicken breast, starting at the thick side, cutting approximately ¾ of the way through, season inside and outside of each breast with salt and pepper, if desired. (CLICK HERE for pictorial on how to stuff a chicken breast)
- Combine ricotta with seasoning, mix well and place about 2 tablespoons of mixture inside each breast, using all filling. Arrange stuffed breasts in prepared baking pan; cover with spaghetti sauce.
- Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until chicken is tender when pierced with a fork and juices run clear. Sprinkle mozzarella on top and return chicken to oven for 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
