Pizza Stuffed Chicken is an easy, five ingredient meal that the entire family will love. Chicken breasts are stuffed with mozzarella cheese and pepperoni, then topped with pizza sauce and baked in the oven.
Butterfly your chicken breasts - hold your hand on top of the chicken breast and slice into the side of the chicken breast, cutting from one side to the other, leaving the opposite side intact. Your goal is to create a pocket for your filling.
Season chicken breasts with garlic powder, salt, and pepper on both sides. Stuff chicken breasts with pepperoni slices and half of the mozzarella cheese. Place in a lightly greased oven-safe baking dish.
Top chicken breasts with pizza sauce and remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake, uncovered, for 35-45 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through to 165 degrees Fahrenheit. I highly recommend using a meat thermometer. Cooking time will depend entirely on the thickness of your chicken breasts.
Chicken cooking time is based entirely on the thickness of your chicken breasts, and could take longer to cook through. I highly recommend investing in a digital meat thermometer - simply insert the thermometer into the thickest chicken breast, set your meat thermometer to 'chicken', and it will beep when your chicken is safely cooked through.
Other toppings to try: thinly sliced onions, bell pepper, mushrooms, or cooked Italian sausage.
Pizza sauce can be substituted with marinara or spaghetti sauce.
