Hasselback Mozzarella Chicken

This is my Italian version of hasselback chicken… stuffed with mozzarella cheese, covered in a delicious parsley garlic butter, and surrounded by halved cherry tomatoes and button mushrooms. 

Preheat your oven to 350


I start with 2 chicken breast. Slice a few slits about halfway through, deeper in the center. Season with salt and oregano.


I then pour my Garlic Herb Butter over them, careful to get a little bit into each cut.. what’s in this Garlic Herb Butter? melted butter with finely minced garlic, parsley and onion. 

*The strips on the sides in these photos are for the little ones


Stuff a slice of cheese in each slit. 

Surround your chicken with halved cherry tomatoes and mushrooms.


Just to go the extra mile I used a generous amount of this 6 cheese combination by Sargento.


Sprinkle your veggies with a little salt. Bake at 350 for about 2 hours until golden and bubbly on top! (Chicken should be 165 degrees F with meat thermometer)


What a delicious treat!!!
