The Recipe Box: Pizza Stuffed Chicken

I KNOW! I thought the same thing when I saw the recipe. Turns out, it’s pretty damn awesome! It’s pretty simple too, and it makes for a great way to spice up chicken breasts.

Ingredients:

4 skinless chicken breasts

Mozzarella cheese

Pizza sauce.

Sliced pepperoni

 

Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat over to 375F.
  2. When chicken is thawed, take a knife and slice a pocket into the side of the breast.
  3. Pour some pizza sauce into the pocket first, followed by small slices of mozzarella cheese, and then the pepperoni. It’s best to use the pre-sliced pepperoni as it’s just the right thickness. Add desired seasoning.
  4. Place the chicken in a baking dish and brush with olive oil and seasoning of pepper oregano and salt (optional).
  5. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. It shouldn’t take longer than the required time as the breasts are open and exposed to the heat.

Pizza Stuffed Chicken

Result:

This was as easy to put together as the video shows, but for me it was sloppy as hell. The pockets weren’t that deep because of the size of the breast so I put some cheese and pepperoni on top. My advice, do it. Adds more flavour to the dinner as you don’t get enough of the pizza without it. I had to cook it longer than the 30 minutes. Come on, I don’t even cook normal chicken breasts for 30 minutes. 45 minutes is the magic number. Also if you’re not a fan of, or don’t have any fresh basil, sprinkle Italian seasoning on top. Again, adds flavour.

This is how mine turned out. I served it with rice and veggies.
