Pizza Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Here's the Dish

If you love pizza, these pizza stuffed chicken breasts are going to knock your socks off!!! I took all the amazing things about pizza, (the sauce, the cheese, the pepperoni, the spices)…. And stuffed them in a chicken breast! This way you get all the flavors of a piece of pizza,the extra protein from the chicken, and none of the empty calories/carbs from the crust!

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 40-45 Minutes.

1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with foil, and spray with non-stick cooking spray (this makes for easy clean up!) Lay chicken out on prepared baking sheet.

2

To make the stuffing,  mix together mozzarella, pizza sauce, and seasonings in a small bowl.

3

Spread mixture out evenly over chicken breasts. Roll up each chicken breast, and place seam side down on baking sheet. Pour remaining pizza sauce over the top of the chicken breasts, and place 3 pepperonis on top of each chicken breast.

4

Bake for 30-35 min, or until chicken is cooked through, (when chicken is no longer pink in the middle).

Ingredients

1.25 lbBoneless skinless chicken breasts, (or 4 chicken breasts), pounded thin
1/4 tsp Salt and pepper
1/2 tsp Garlic
1 tspItalian blend
1/2 cup Mozzarella
1/4 cupPizza (or pasta) sauce + 1/4 cup pizza sauce (for topping)
12Turkey pepperonis

Where do you find the turkey pepperoni? You’ve had them in a few recipes.

I just found your website over the weekend and have already tried two recipes in the past two days and loved them both! My attempt at this pizza stuffed chicken tasted great, but definitely didn’t look as pretty as yours, my stuffing got everywhere all over the pan and barely any stayed in the chicken. I was wondering if you had any tips to make sure the stuffing stays in the chicken? Thank you so much!

This sounds great! I can’t wait to give it a try! Side note: I think your WW points calculation is off. You can roughly estimate the points plus value as 40 calories per point, so 180 calories being 8 points sounded odd to me. I plugged it into my calculator and got 4 points.

Lisa that might be the old points system which goes by calories fat and fiber, Katie is using the new points+ which goes by fat, carbs, fiber and protein. Hope this helps

Lisa’s right – I plugged it into my WW calculator and came up with 4 ppvs. So, as long as the breakdown is accurate, it’s even better!

Kaye said:

Lisa, I divided the 180 by 40 and came up with 4.5 points??

Hi Katie! Thanks for posting this! Im actually in the middle of making them right now. I too wasn’t able to roll them up so I layed them flat so the chicken is like the crust. Do you have any tips about how to roll the chicken? This might be a helpful tip for other recipes I try too. Thanks!

I made this tonight and just added a couple of ingredients. We love meat pizza so I decided to add some turkey sausage and real bacon bits. My boyfriend loved it. Of course, it was a little thick, so I used toothpicks to hold it together. After it’s cooked, it stays together without the toothpicks just fine. We’re not a fan of veggie pizzas, but I’m sure someone could throw in some mushrooms or green peppers to change it up. Thanks for the recipe!

quick question:

if there are 4 pieces of chicken and 3 pepperonis on each, wouldn’t that be 12, not 17? or am i missing something?

Hi. These smelled delicious while they were cooking but tasted awful, the chicken was so dry! I followed the recipe exactly, pounded the chicken breasts thin, etc. Suggestions are more than welcome on how to cook ANY skinless chicken breast that is moist. Thanks : )

Dashing Dish said:

Did you put the sauce over them before cooking? That is key

Kristan Perovich said:

I spread the remaining sauce over the chicken, in exact increments, following the recipe. I pounded the chicken thin. I’m using a convection oven, would that be the difference? A friend mentioned that chicken breast does well if it’s marinated prior to cooking. Do you recommend this? Thanks : )

JJ said:

My convection oven says to reduce the cooking temperature by 25 degrees and reduce the cooking time a bit also. I would check it at 25 minutes.

Is there a healthy pizza sauce that you suggest?

I noticed these were freezer friendly- do you freeze before baking?

yes! :) but either would work…before or after baking!
