Pepperoni Pizza Chicken Rollups
Everyone will love this super easy, delicious, and family-friendly recipe for Pepperoni Pizza Chicken Rollups.
Yesterday was a super fun mail day. It started out with a UPS delivery from Amazon. I purchased more RAM for my iMac to increase multitasking speeds so I can run multiple programs like Photoshop and Lightroom at once without serious lagging. Since I used Amazon Prime* and since I live close to a distribution center, it worked out so that the order I place at 9:45pm Monday night was delivered to my house by 10am Tuesday morning. Amazing. Also, since installing the RAM in my computer it is significantly faster. Also amazing.
The next awesome package the came to our house was the Karlstad sectional couch we purchased from Ikea on Monday. Unfortunately all Ikea stores are apparently out of the Karlstad chaise lounge piece so we had to purchase the sectional without that piece for the time being. We did perform a little Ikea hack before assembling the couch that made it look much better overall. We spray-painted the ugly light wood colored legs with Rust Oleum Metallic spray paint in Oil Rubbed Bronze ala Young House Love. The couch fits so perfectly in our living room and once we get the chaise piece I’ll be sure to share a photo with you guys! Who knew Ikea couches could be so pretty and comfortable?
Lastly, I received my first Stitch Fix* yesterday! I ended up deciding to keep two shirts which are super adorable. One of the shirts is something I probably would have never tried on in a store but I fell in love with it after trying it on in my closet with a pair of maroon colored skinny jeans I own. It’s a seriously cute and versatile outfit. Yay!
I just love getting things in the mail (besides bills). What do you love to get in the mail? Now onto this fantastic chicken recipe which I wish I could mail to all you guys!
Taste: Just like a pepperoni pizza but with more chicken flavor and less carbs!
Texture: The chicken is incredibly moist and tender while the filling is meaty and cheesy. Nothing short of amazing!
Ease: Completely doable.
Appearance: Messily gourmet… is that a thing?
Pros: Absolutely scrumptious, easy, and family-friendly.
Would I make this again? Definitely.
Pepperoni Pizza Chicken Rollups
Check out my recipe for homemade pizza sauce!
Yield: 4 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
35 slices pepperoni, divided
4 ounces sliced or shredded mozzarella cheese
3 cups pizza sauce
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Season the chicken breasts with garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste. Place 5 slices of pepperoni on each breast and divide the cheese among the breasts. Roll up the breasts and seal with toothpicks.
Chop the remaining pepperoni and place in a medium skillet. Heat until they have released most of their fat. Remove the pepperoni and set aside. Place the chicken roll ups in the skillet and fry in rendered fat for about 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Place the chicken in a baking dish. Combine the pizza sauce and the fried pepperoni and pour over chicken.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
