Pepperoni stuffed Parmesan Chicken

I thought of this recipe a long time ago and felt like such a genius!!! I had never made stuffed chicken before and I wasn't sure how it really works. After I tried this recipe, I realized how easy it was and I decided to make the Pepperoni Stuffed Parmesan Chicken.

Bear with me because I just threw things together and didn't measure. So you may need to alter the measurements slightly. Eye it. That's what I did.

This is an awesome recipe! It's very filling. It's not really calorie conscious. I made spaghetti to go with it, but that ended up just being too much.

Pepperoni Stuffed Parmesan Chicken (serves 2)

2 chicken breasts
2 oz light cream cheese
1T chopped green pepper
1/8 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Handful of pepperoni slices chopped
1/3 c Italian bread crumbs
1/3 c Parmesan cheese
1 egg beaten

  • Pre-Heat oven to 450 degrees. 
  • Pound chicken out thin enough to roll up. 
  • Combine cream cheese, chopped pepper, Italian seasoning, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni in a small bowl. 
  • Spread cheese mixture on chicken.
  • Roll chicken and secure with toothpicks
  • Combine parmesan cheese and bread crumbs in a small bowl
  • In another bowl beat egg. 
  • Drag chicken roll through egg and then coat with crumbs/ Parmesan cheese mixture. 
  • Place chicken on baking pan and bake for 22-25 minutes.

This sounds really good and maybe not as time consuming as I thought. Good work.
