1/2 tablespoon parsley
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Dash of salt

  3. Put one slice of tomato followed by one slice of mozzarella cheese on one half of each piece of chicken.
  4. Fold the other side of the chicken over the tomato and mozzarella so it completely covers the pile and secure with toothpicks.
