Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. In a bowl, combine ricotta, ½ cup mozzarella, ¼ cup Parmesan, egg, and basil. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Cut a pocket in each chicken breast. Stuff each with 2 tablespoons marinara sauce and 1/4 of ricotta mixture.

Step 3

Arrange stuffed chicken in the bottom of a 9"-x-13" baking dish. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and drizzle with oil.

Step 4

Bake until chicken is almost cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 155°, about 25 minutes, or up to 35 minutes for larger breasts. Discard excess juices in pan.

Step 5

Change oven to broil and top chicken with remaining 1 cup marinara, remaining ¾ cup mozzarella, and remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Broil until cheese is golden and bubbly and chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°, about 4 to 5 minutes more.

Step 6

Garnish with more basil before serving.
