What's Cooking: Pizza Stuffed Chicken

This recipe is good to get that pizza taste without the carbs from the crust. I recommend lining your baking sheet with some tin foil because the melted cheese can get messy!

- 4 chicken breasts, pounded thin
- mozzarella cheese
- pizza sauce or pasta sauce
- pizza toppings (we used pepperoni for ours)
Cooking Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. Mix some mozzarella cheese, pizza/pasta sauce, and pizza ingredients in a bowl. I say "some" because you may like more cheese or more sauce in your filling. Also, make sure your pizza ingredients are cut down to a size that can fit inside your chicken breasts.
3. Spread mixture out evenly over chicken breasts.
4. Roll the chicken breasts and place them seam down on a baking sheet.
5. Put more sauce on the top of the chicken breasts. You could also put more pizza toppings on top, like pepperonis.
6. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the chicken is done. I added some mozzarella cheese after 25 minutes and put the chicken breasts back in for 5 minutes to melt the cheese on top.
