Traditional chicken parmesan consists of breaded chicken with mozzarella and sauce on top, but this twist takes chicken parmesan to a whole new level. By stuffing the chicken breast instead, you get a whole new combination of flavor.

Using cherry tomatoes and mozzarella for the stuffing makes the meal lighter and gives it a more refreshing taste. This is a great recipe to add to your arsenal, even for novice college cooks like me.
