In this tasty, easy recipe, we stuffed chicken breasts with cheese, basil and sun-dried tomatoes and cooked them in a mixture of tomatoes and garlic. The result: A melty, flavorful stuffing; a zingy sauce and chicken that’s juicy and tender.  You’ll want to put this recipe into your regular dinner rotation..
