Pepperoni Crusted Stuffed Chicken

Ingredients:

  • 4 skinless, boneless, chicken breasts
  • 24 Turkey Pepperoni slices ( I use Great Value)
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp Italian Seasonings ( I use Daks’ Italian Blast)
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 laughing cow cheese wedges ( I use pepper jack)
  • 1/2 cup marinara or pizza sauce ( I use my zero point marinara)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a food processor or blender, combine panko breadcrumbs, turkey pepperoni, grated Parmesan cheese and Italian seasonings. Blend until all ingredients have been incorporated.
  3. Pour breadcrumb mixture into a shallow plate. Set aside.
  4. In a shallow dish, whisk egg until smooth.
  5. Meanwhile, season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Spread 1 cheese wedge on each chicken breast then roll each chicken breast up using a toothpick to hold it together.
  6. Coat all 4 chicken breasts in egg mixture and then immediately into breadcrumb mixture.
  7. Spray a 9×11 baking dish with non stick cooking spray. And spread marinara sauce on bottom of baking dish. Place chicken breasts on top of marinara sauce.
  8. Cook for 30-35 minutes or until chicken breasts are completely cooked through.
  9. Take out of oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes. You can also add more marinara sauce on top.
