Basil Parmesan Stuffed Chicken

Basil Parmesan Stuffed Chicken Breast, Sauteed Squash, and Pasta Marinara

this was very delicious, but then again..what isn't ? :)

First preheat oven to 350 - take one chicken breast and butterfly it into 2 pieces then pound out until even.

Add a little bit of minced garlic, basil, and fresh shredded parmesan (or cheese of your choice -asiago would be a very good substitute)

Roll them and tie them up with bakers twine - season with salt and pepper- stick them in the oven for about 25 minutes

dice up some squash add 2 tablespoons butter, salt and pepper, about 2 tablespoons of water, bring to boil and simmer until time to serve.

make some angel hair pasta and marinara sauce for a side dish (i added fresh basil, oregeno, garlic, and red wine to jarred sauce)

perfectly cooked and oozing with cheese
Plate up and enjoy!
