Pizza Stuffed Chicken
The BEST way to have chicken. These Pizza Stuffed Chicken breasts are filled with and topped with all your favorite pizza ingredients.
- 4 chicken breast (boneless and skinless)
- 14 oz pizza sauce
- 1 ½ cup mozzarella cheese (shredded)
- 24 sliced pepperoni
- 1 tablespoon dried basil
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick spray.
Flatten chicken as needed to make them all even in sizing. Slice a pocket into the side of the chicken.
Fill each chicken breast with about a ¼ a cup of shredded mozzarella cheese and 2-3 slices of pepperoni. Place your stuffed chicken into your prepared casserole dish.
Pour all pizza sauce over the chicken. Top chicken breast with remaining shredded cheese, sliced pepperoni, and basil.
Place chicken in the oven and bake for 55-65 minutes or until chicken is baked through. Remove from the oven and serve.
Cutting Chicken Tip:
When cutting a pocket into your chicken for the stuffing you want to make sure it's just large enough to fit the ingredients without cutting it to big or all the way through the chicken. Once you flatten the chicken to be even start cutting at the top more meaty part of the chicken and just use the tip of the knife to make a slit. You can use your fingers to slowly pull part to widen the pocket as needed. Then place chicken in the casserole dish and wash hands before handling more ingredients.
How to Flatten/Beat Chicken:
To ensure that all my chicken breast cook evenly I like to flatten them just enough to be even for this recipe. To do this place your chicken breast in a large gallon size baggie. Use a rolling pin or meat mallet to beat and chicken. I usually just do one breast at a time and make sure to get all the air out of the bag as possible to avoid any splattering.
