How do I make it ?
Heat oven to 400ºF.
Use paring knife to cut 6 crosswise slits into top of each chicken breast, being careful to not cut all the way through to bottom of chicken. Place, cut sides up, in 10x7-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
Stack mozzarella slices; cut in half, then cut each half into 6 pieces. Cut tomato into 12 thin slices, then cut each slice in half. Fill each slit in chicken breasts with 2 cheese pieces and 1 tomato piece.
Mix Miracle Whip and pesto sauce until blended; brush onto chicken. Sprinkle with Parmesan.
Bake 18 to 20 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF). Sprinkle with basil.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Substitute 1/2 cup Cracker Barrel Shredded Mozzarella Cheese for the cut-up mozzarella slices, placing 1 tsp. cheese in each slit in chicken along with the tomato piece before baking as directed.
