TRIED AND TASTED RECIPE
Pizza Baked Chicken – I fixed this last week for a family gathering. Even the grandkids liked it; hope you enjoy it too.
1 jar (14 oz.) pizza sauce
4 large boneless-skinless chicken breasts
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. oregano and 1 tsp. garlic powder
Mozzarella cheese, sliced
2 oz. sliced pepperoni
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a non-stick frying pan. Add the chicken pieces that have been seasoned with oregano and garlic powder. I also sprinkled on salt and pepper. Cook 1 – 2 minutes on each side, just long enough to brown the chicken but not long enough to cook it through. Lay the chicken pieces in a single layer in a casserole dish that has been sprayed with Pam. Top each piece of chicken with a spoonful of pizza sauce, a slice of mozzarella and pepperoni slices, covering the top of each piece of chicken as much as you can. Bake, uncovered, about 25-30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and starting to brown and the pepperoni is slightly crisped.
