Pizza Roll Chicken

Chicken is a staple in our house.  I buy boneless, skinless chicken breasts in bulk so I am always looking for new ways to cook it.  I am also the proud mother of the pickiest-eater on earth.  It was those two factors that went into creating this dish.  And I am happy to report that it was a hit!  He cleaned his plate!  Here's what I did:


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
32 slices of pepperoni
1/2 block of mozarella cheese (8 oz block)
1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
onion/garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.  Cut the mozarella into 8 sticks (make them all about the same size).  Slice the chicken breasts in half lengthwise to make 2 thin cutlets out of each.  This will give you 8 cutlets.  Cover each with plastic wrap (to keep from making a mess) and pound it thin with a meat mallet or heavy-bottomed pot or a rolling pin.  They don't have to be too thin, just try to even them out.

Season each cutlet with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and oregano.

Lay 4 slices of pepperoni on the wide end of each cutlet.

Place 1 stick of mozarella cheese on top of the pepperoni.

Roll the chicken tightly (starting at the end with the pepperoni and cheese).

Lay the chicken rolls in the baking dish seam-side down.

Season the tops of the chicken with salt and pepper.  Then, cover them completely with spaghetti sauce.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

These are so good!  Pizza flavor all rolled up in a chicken breast!  Need I say more?
