Pizza Chicken

A perfect weeknight meal with lots of flavor and it doesn't take much time to make.  I chose only pepperoni as a topping but you can add mushrooms, green pepper slices...whatever your favorites are on a pizza.  Luckily, I did have pizza sauce in my freezer that I had made earlier but store bought is fine to use too.





Pizza Chicken

2-4 chicken breasts
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
pizza sauce
shredded mozzarella cheese
oregano
your favorite toppings

Heat the olive oil in a large, oven-ready frying pan.  Lightly brown seasoned (with salt and pepper) chicken breasts.  Place in a pre-heated oven to 350°.  Bake for 20 minutes.  You can use this time to make a side or two.  Remove from oven and top each chicken breast with a tbsp of pizza sauce.  Add in your favorite toppings and top with the shredded mozzarella cheese.  Sprinkle the cheese with oregano and return to the oven for another 5 minutes.
