Prep: 15 min
Total: 45 min

4 servings


4 small  boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 lb.)
12 large  fresh basil leaves, divided

4 large  oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained
1/4 cup  KRAFT Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing, divided
2-1/4 cups  grape tomatoes, halved


HEAT oven to 400ºF.

MAKE cut in one long side of each chicken breast, being careful to not cut through to opposite side. Fill each pocket with 2 basil leaves and 1 each cheese slice and sun-dried tomato.
