  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt, and black pepper in a shallow bowl; place flour into a second bowl. Whisk egg and lemon juice together in a third bowl.
  3. Dip each chicken breast in egg mixture and dredge in flour; dip again in egg mixture and dredge chicken in crumb mixture until coated. Place coated chicken breasts into a baking dish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is heated through and crumbs are golden, about 20 minutes.
  5. Spoon 2 tablespoons pizza sauce onto each chicken breast, sprinkle each with half the mozzarella cheese, and top each with half the pepperoni slices.
  6. Bake until chicken is no longer pink inside and the juices run clear, about 10 more minutes. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a breast should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

I was surprised at how good this tuned out. I was looking for a different way to make chicken and am so glad I came across this recipe. The chicken is so tender. The breading adds a lot of fl...

This was actually delicious! It was simple to make and tasted amazing! I will definitly be making this agian.

Pretty good; followed recipe exact. The three separate bowls for breading is kind of a pain, but other than that it is good and easy. Used pepperoni on the kids' and Canadian bacon on the adu...

adding other toppings, such as diced red peppers, mushrooms, onions, etc. was good as well. Each person in the family could "design" their own meal. I served it with parmesan risotto and aspar...

This was a fun meal, everyone loved it. I didn't have pizza sauce so I replaced it with pasta sauce. Yumm

This was so good!!!I didnt have pizza sauce nor mozzarella cheese instead I used spaghetti sauce and habanero shred cheese and still came out delicious!!!

This recipe is incredible as is! No additions, no deletions....and I am not a fan of chicken breast. The kids LOVED it!!!

Very good. The only thing I did differently was use strips of Salami instead of Pepperoni. I don't normally have pizza sauce around so I may do something a bit different next time but it was gr...
