Lucky Luciano's Killer Combo

Sunday, November 8, 2015

Like Lucky Luciano, this dish is straight forward, to the point, and the king of Italian secrets.
In crime and in cooking, people get caught up in fancy appearances.... when the reality is that a simple approach is most often the most successful.

Shooting straight down the middle, this dish will BLOW YOUR MIND.

From the 5 Points Gang to this 5 Ingredient Dish, Italians know how to get things done.

2 Chicken Breasts
1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes, chopped
4 ounces fresh mozzarella
2 tsp basil pesto
balsamic reduction for drizzle
optional: Tuscan herb blend


1. Carefully fillet the chicken breasts in half, leaving the final edge connected to create a pocket that you can use for stuffing the breast.
2. Spoon 1 teaspoon of pesto into each breast and spread.
3. Tear 2 ounces of mozzarella and split between the 2 breasts, spreading evenly.
4. Sprinkle sun dried tomato pieces on top of the cheese.
5. Close breasts and use 3 pieces of kitchen string to securely fasten so that the stuffing doesn't escape during cooking.

6. If desired, sprinkle outside of chicken with a Tuscan blend of herbs (oregano, basil, red pepper flake-- or premade mix)
7. Heat skillet to medium high, spray with olive oil cooking spray and set pouches carefully onto the skillet.
8. Let them brown for 2 minutes, carefully flip to the other side and let brown for 2-3 minutes.

9. Reduce heat to medium low and cover for 10-12 minutes (flipping half way), or until chicken is cooked through.
10. Take remaining Mozzarella, divide between the 2 breasts and lay over top of the chicken. Cover again until the cheese is nice and melty.
11. Transfer to plate, drizzle with balsamic reduction, and enjoy!

We like to serve this dish with a simple spring mix salad, sprinkled with tomatoes, carrots, and  cucumbers. Use a drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the same balsamic reduction, and you've got yourself a simple winner!
