PREP TIME: 5 minutes
COOK TIME: 45 minutes
4 chicken breasts, rinsed and patted dry
1/2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, with the oil, finely chopped
4 ounces mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup caramelized onions*
Preheat your oven to 375 F and make sure your oven rack is positioned in the middle of the oven.
Slice chicken breasts halfway through with a paring knife. Be careful not to slice all the way through the chicken. Stuff the breasts with the onions, tomatoes and cheese, distributing evenly. Bake for 45 minutes or until the chicken's juices run clear. Serve warm.
To caramelize the onions, heat 1 tablespoon of oil to medium in a heavy skillet. Add onion slices and sauté for 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions soften and turn a deep caramel color. Remove from heat.
