How to make it
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Mix artichokes, cheese, tomatoes, and basil in medium bowl.
- Using small sharp knife and working with 1 chicken breast at a time, cut 2-inch-long slit horizontally into 1 side of chicken breast. Move knife back and forth in slit to form pocket.
- Divide 1 cup cheese mixture among chicken pockets (**Note: The remainder filling mixture would be great for a frittata, pasta, etc. ).
- Press edges to seal. **Note 2: If bulging a lot, can close with a toothpick, which I usually do.
- Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
- Heat oil in heavy large ovenproof skillet over high heat. Add chicken; cook 3-5 minutes.
- Turn chicken over; transfer skillet to oven. Bake until cooked through, about 12-15 minutes.
- Let sit for 3-5 minutes before slicing.
