Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Breasts

I have mentioned before how much I like it when Aaron cooks. I recently started a new job and Aaron’s been getting creative in the kitchen (not that he wasn’t before). We had this dish the other night and it was fantastic. I love coming home to a husband cooking up a hot meal!

Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Breasts:

Serves 2

2 chicken breasts, flattened
6-ish garlic cloves, minced
A few slices fresh mozzarella cheese
Olive oil
Cooked ziti
Pasta sauce (TJ’s marinara is awesome and such a good deal. Add some crushed/minced garlic. Or use your own sauce.)

Flatten your chicken breasts until they are really thin. Wrap the chicken in plastic wrap and using a rolling pin. Cover one half of the chicken breasts with the minced garlic and mozzarella sliced. Fold the other half over.

Heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Place the chicken breasts in the pan, wait until the cheese has melted and flip over. Cook through. This took about 10 minutes, on the high side. Place over cooked ziti and cover the whole thing with pasta sauce. Serve with your favorite mixed greens.

Aaron said the only thing he would change here would be to season the chicken more before cooking it. This is simple, tasty, and perfect for the weeknight, although I think it is nice enough for company, but the company I like to have over will eat anything. Well almost anything. They’re not that picky about fancy.
