Italian Hasselback Chicken Breasts



  • 1 cup sun-dried tomato-pesto sauce
  • 1 package (8 oz) sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 4 slices mozzarella or provolone cheese, cut into strips

  2. Arrange 1 package (8 oz) sliced fresh mushrooms in single layer in bottom of dish. Coat mushrooms with some of remaining sauce.
  3. In tops of 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, make slices from top to almost bottom and 3/4-inch apart to form pockets; be sure not to cut all the way through. Spread 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of sauce over each chicken breast half, making sure to also coat inside of pockets.
