What do you need?
Boneless skinless chicken breasts, the same amount of people you plan on feeding
1 jar of your favorite pizza sauce, or garlic infused olive oil
1 package of Applegate Pepperoni's, cut into fourths
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper
1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil
Any favorite pizza toppings, but keep it to a minimum of less then 4-5, or everything may not fit
What do you do?
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Heat a large oven proof skillet over medium to almost high heat.
Pour in your olive oil and season one side of your chicken with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning liberally.
Once your skillet is heated, place your chicken in and season the other side the same.
Cook for 4 minutes or until you get a golden brown color around the edges. Flip.
Once you flip the chicken place your skillet in the oven and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until your chicken is no longer pink.
Remove your cooked chicken from the oven, cool slightly and begin topping your chicken breasts by brushing on your pizza sauce or garlic infused olive oil.
Bump your oven up to broil.
Top your chicken with your cheeses, pepperonis, and any other toppings you have chosen.
Make sure that your skillet is oven safe to 500 degrees, and if not place them in another dish that is.
Put them back in the oven for a few minutes or until your cheese is melted and your toppings are cooked to your liking.
