Per serving
1 Leaner protein
1 Green
3 condiments
1 fat

Ingredients
• 2 (4/5 ounce)chicken breasts
• 4 ounces Sliced part skim mozzarella cheese
• ½ cup Grape tomatoes; sliced in half
• ¼ cup Basil leaves
• 1 3/4 teaspoons Italian seasoning
• ¼ tsp salt
• ½ tsp pepper
• 2 teaspoons olive oil

Instructions
Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board.
Using a sharp knife, cut slits across the chicken breast about 3/4 of the way through the chicken breast being careful not to cut all the way through. Depending on the size of your chicken breast, you’re going to want around 6 to 8 slits per chicken breast. Stuff each slit with a slice of mozzarella cheese, half a grape tomato and a basil leaf. Place chicken breasts in a baking dish that has been coated with non-stick baking spray. Brush each chicken breast with olive oil.
Sprinkle each chicken breast with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 30 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 160 degrees.

**Add 1 cup of steamed green beans to create a full lean and green.
