Easy and delicious recipe for stuffed chicken filled with fresh mozzarella cheese and tomatoes. Stuffed chicken breast tastes amazing and is super easy to make!



14.11 oz (400 g) chicken breast

1 tomato

2.2 oz (62.5 g) fresh mozzarella

0.5 handful fresh basil


1.5 tablespoon olive olie



  1. Grab your favorite KUMA kitchen knife and trim any parts you may not want to eat off the chicken breast. Then cut a crevice across the side of each breast filet, effectively creating a small pocket in it.
  2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  3. Cut tomato and fresh mozzarella into slices. Wash basil leaves.
  4. Heat up a pan greased with oil and give the chicken a quick fry on both sides fo it gets a nice sear.
  5. Remove chicken from the pan and place it on a baking tray with a baking sheet on it. First add a slice of mozzarella into the pocket of the chicken breast and then add a tomato slice followed by a bit of basil. 
  6. If you have some wooden tooth picks you can put those in to close the chicken shut, but this step is not necessary if you don’t have them..
  7. Bake chicken in an oven preheated to 375 F (190 C) for 15-20 minutes.
  8. Remove chicken from oven when it’s done cooking and let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.
