Chicken Pizzaiola Recipe
Chicken Pizzaiola is a classic Italian recipe that is popular for a reason! Its tried-and-true flavors are pure comfort, and it couldn't be any easier to make.
Servings: 4 servings
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded to 1/4 inch thickness
- 1 cup Italian flavored bread crumbs
- 3 cups Spaghetti sauce
- 2 ounces pepperoni I buy the pre-cooked slices to save time
- 2 cups Mozzarella cheese shredded
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil or enough to cover the bottom of the pan
Pour vegetable oil on bottom of pan. Heat the oil on medium-high heat.
Meanwhile, roll chicken in bread crumbs to coat both sides. When oil is hot enough, place chicken into the pan of oil. (Hint: You can tell if the oil is ready by getting your fingers wet in water then flicking them at the pan of oil- if the oil splatters when the water mixes with it, its hot enough. If not, let it get hotter.)
Cook chicken for several minutes on each side until golden brown and not pink in the center.
Place 4-5 slices of pepperoni on each chicken breast and let it sit for about a minute to heat through.
Pour spaghetti sauce over the top of the chicken then sprinkle Mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce.
Cover the pan and continue cooking 'til cheese is melted.
Serve over your favorite pasta and ENJOY!
