Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts boneless and skinless, on the larger side
  • 30 pepperoni slices
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 9x13 foil tray or freezer safe casserole dish

Instructions

Assembly instructions:

  • Spray a 9x13 oven-safe dish or 9x13 foil tray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Slice chicken in half horizontally through the thickness of the breast. Pound to ½ an inch thick. You can make this easier by placing chicken between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper when pounding.
  • Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. In the middle of the chicken, place four slices of pepperoni and about 1 Tbsp. of shredded mozzarella. Roll the chicken, tucking in the edges, and place in the baking dish or foil tray.
  • Pour pizza sauce over each chicken breast. Top with remaining mozzarella and pepperoni slices.
  • Place two layers of aluminum foil over the tray and seal the edges well.
  • Label and freeze.

Cooking Instructions:

  • Take the tray out of the freezer. Thaw.
  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Place the tray in the oven. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes (depending on the thickness of the chicken breast) or until a meat thermometer reads 165°.
