"I would increase the marinade time and/or add more garlic and olive oil to the marinade. I only marinaded the breasts for 20-30 minutes after stuffing. I may try marinading first and stuffing after too. Otherwise a great recipe!"


2 oz Sun-dried tomatoes
1/2 c Reduced-sodium chicken broth
20 oz Skinless boneless chicken
8 lg Basil leaves
Salt and pepper
2 tb Balsamic vinegar
1 tb Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Garlic; minced
1/8 ts Red pepper flakes; crushed

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



In a small saucepan on the stovetop, or in a microwave oven, bring the tomatoes and broth just to a boil. Let stand about 15 minutes, until the tomatoes are softened. Remove the tomatoes and reserve any remaining broth.

Cut the tomatoes in half. Use a small sharp knife to cut as large a pocket as possible in each chicken breast, taking care not to cut all the way through. Divide the rehydrated tomatoes and the basil among the chicken, stuffing them into the pockets. Sprinkle the chicken lightly with salt and pepper.

In a shallow dish just large enough to hold the chicken, combine the reserved broth, vinegar, oil, garlic, and red pepper. Let stand 30 minutes at room temperature or up to 2 hours in the refrigerator. Drain and discard the marinade.

Prepare a medium-hot fire. Lightly oil the grill or coat with a non-stick vegetable spray. Grill the chicken, turning once with a spatula, 8 to 10 minutes, until the meat is white throughout. Serve warm or at room temperature, cut into crosswise sections and fanned out if desired. 249 cals, 5.8 g fat (21.7% cff) Low Fat Grilling: Fabulous Food from the Backyard Barbecue by Melanie Bernard.

Even my picky husband enjoyed this meal! I did add a drizzle of a balsamic reduction over each chicken breast and it was so delicious! I will definitely make this again.

Delicious! Made it with cream cheese mashed potatoes, asparagus, and garlic bread for my mom's bday dinner. Left out the red pepper flakes and used the George Forman Grill. Excellent!
