Baked Chicken Pepperoni

Rated as 4.43 out of 5 Stars

"There was a movie in the 1980s called Seems Like Old Times starring Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase. One of the recurring themes in this movie was Goldie Hawn's character's ability to cook an amazing dish called Chicken Pepperoni. I had never heard of Chicken Pepperoni before, but I thought it sounded delicious. So I decided to put some ingredients together and gave it the ol' college try. It came out delicious!"

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Rub oregano and basil over chicken breasts.
  3. Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add chicken; cook until browned and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side.
  4. Pour half the spaghetti sauce into a large baking dish. Lay chicken breasts on top. Coat chicken with remaining half of the spaghetti sauce. Scatter mozzarella cheese over sauce. Arrange 6 pepperoni slices over each chicken breast.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Use any blend of Italian shredded cheeses instead of mozzarella if preferred.
  • You can use regular pepperoni instead of turkey pepperoni, but it's a little greasier.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I've been making this same recipe for years. It's an easy, weeknight meal. The only thing I do different is I bake the chicken and sauce for 30 minutes at 350, then add the pepperoni and bake ...

Even though I cooked and then baked a little extra time, on the chicken, it still wasn't cooked all the way through. I then put it in the microwave to finish cooking it. The reason I give it on...
