Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 cup plain breadcrumbs
1 cup finely grated parmesan cheese, divided

01Preheat oven to 425 F. Cut deep slit into each chicken breast horizontally, creating a pocket. Stuff mozzarella in each chicken breast. Press edge of chicken breast together to seal. Season chicken with salt and pepper.
02Mix breadcrumbs, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese and oregano in low, wide bowl. Add flour and eggs to 2 separate bowls. Coat chicken in flour then dip in eggs. Let excess egg drip off and then coat in parmesan breadcrumb mixture. Shake off any excess.
03Heat oil in large oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook about 8 minutes, flipping halfway through, until golden-brown. Pour marinara around chicken. Sprinkle remaining parmesan over chicken.
04Transfer skillet to oven and bake until chicken is fully cooked, and reaches 165°F, about 20 minutes. Garnish with basil and serve with pasta.
