  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9×13 baking dish or coat with nonstick spray.
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper, to taste. Cut each breast horizontally to, but not through, the other side to create a pocket.
  • Lift top flap of chicken pocket, arranging cheese, spinach and tomatoes.
  • Working one at a time, dip chicken into the eggs, then dredge in bread crumbs, pressing to coat.
  • Place chicken onto the prepared baking dish and bake until the chicken is completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, about 25-30 minutes.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with basil, if desired.
