Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Servings: 4


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts 6 oz each
  • 1/4 cup basil pesto we buy Costco’s pesto
  • 8 oz sliced fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 2 large plum Roma tomatoes, cut into 4 slices each, halved
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Fresh basil leaves chopped


  • Cut 4 large sheets of heavy-duty foil. Spray sides with cooking spray.
  • In the chicken breasts, cut 4 crosswise slits about 3/4-inch apart, carefully cutting almost to bottom of chicken breast, but not all the way through. Place each chicken breast on a piece of foil.
  • Spoon 1 teaspoon pesto into each slit in chicken breast. Place 1 mozzarella slice and 1/2 tomato slice in each slit. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper.
  • Bring up 2 sides of foil, sealing the edges; do the same on the other side, making a sealed packet.
  • Place packs on grill over medium heat. Cover the grill; cook 10 minutes. Rotate packs 1/2 turn; cooking 9 to 10 minutes longer. Check to see that chicken is done in the center.
  • Carefully fold back the foil; garnish with fresh basil and serve!
