Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On the thickest side of each chicken breast, cut a wide pocket 3/4 of the way through, taking care to not cut through back or sides of chicken. Sprinkle inside of chicken breast pockets evenly with 1 tablespoon of seasoning. Stuff each pocket with 2 slices of mozzarella cheese and 2 slices of tomato. Press chicken lightly to seal; secure with toothpicks. Sprinkle stuffed chicken evenly on both sides with the remaining 1 tablespoon seasoning.
