Pizza Stuffed Chicken

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • pepperoni or your favorite pizza toppings
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9 by 13 inch glass baking dish with cooking spray and pour a enough pizza sauce in the bottom to completely cover it. Set dish aside.
  • Cut each of the four chicken breasts in half, not going all the way through, butterflying them. (See photo above.)
  • Sprinkle each with salt and pepper. Put 1 to 2 TBSPs of pizza sauce on top of each piece of chicken. Top with 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese each. Then top each one with your favorite pizza toppings.
  • Fold the chicken back over and secure closed with two toothpicks.
  • Place the four stuffed chicken breasts in the prepared pan. Top each piece of chicken with a little more sauce and 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked through.
  • Remove the chicken from the oven, transfer to plates, and remove toothpicks.
