Hasselback chicken stuffed with mozzarella, tomato and basil is a new way to enjoy chicken for dinner tonight from Walking on Sunshine Recipes.

I have been on a chicken for dinner "kick" lately!
And I've been doing really good at taking the photos, writing the ingredients down as I go along so I can blog about the recipe with you too.  I'm sure we've all seen the video floating around on Facebook of the Hasselback chicken stuffed with cheese, tomatoes and basil.   I made a few changes from the recipe the video showed and it came out delicious.  Really easy and my husband is already requesting this recipe for dinner again.

Now, people are making Hasselback everything...apples, sweet potatoes and even chicken.  


Using a sharp knife, cut slits across each chicken breast.

  9. This was delicious! Very moist and tasty. I made an angel hair pasta side with similar ingredients to compliment the vegetables in the chicken. I think it is one of the best chicken breast dishes I have ever made. I had fresh basil, tomatoes, and oregano from the garden so it was extra special. Can't wait until I make it again.

  12. It was just like the photo. I served it with fresh oven roasted asparagus drizzled in a garlic and olive oil mixture(Thin pencil like asparagus). It was a great combination. I bought a basil plant the day before so I used FRESH basil. Yum
