  • Place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of heavy plastic or waxed paper on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a 1/2-inch thickness.

  • Combine bread crumbs, 1 teaspoon oregano, 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt, salt, and black pepper in a shallow bowl. Dip both sides of chicken in bread crumb mixture until evenly coated.

  • Heat 1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook 2 chicken breasts until browned and no longer pink in the center, about 4 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining olive oil and chicken breasts. Arrange chicken breasts in a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  • Combine tomatoes, sugar, 1 teaspoon garlic salt, basil, 1/2 teaspoon oregano, salt and black pepper in a saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until heated through, 10 to 15 minutes. Pour sauce evenly over chicken breasts in the baking dish.

  • Cover tomato sauce with pepperoni and mozzarella cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, 20 to 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Depending on the size of the chicken breasts you use, you may need to use two 9x13-inch baking dishes.

The longer you cook the tomato sauce, the more flavor it will have.

This was very tasty. The pepperoni added a nice twist to our usual chicken parm. I made the chicken cutlets the way I normally do with a flour dusting egg wash and then the bread crumbs. Also I used seasoned bread crumbs so I didn't bother adding any additional herbs to the bread crumb mixture. Read More
