"I looked for a chicken pepperoni recipe for years, and when I finally found one I didn't really much care for it - so I made up my own. It got rave reviews from my hubby and kids! Serve over your favorite pasta."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Pound chicken breasts flat with a meat mallet. Season to taste with garlic powder, salt, pepper and Italian style seasoning.
  3. Place 4 to 5 slices pepperoni on each breast and top each with a slice of cheese. Roll up breasts and fasten with toothpicks.
  4. Fry the pepperoni in a medium skillet until it has released most of its oil. Remove pepperoni from skillet and set aside. Brown chicken rolls in pepperoni oil about 5 to 10 minutes each side. Place chicken in a baking dish. Combine spaghetti sauce and sliced pepperoni and pour over chicken.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes.

I browned the chicken rolls in olive oil. I left out the part in step 4 with the pepperoni oil to cut out some fat.I also simmered the rolls on top of the stove for 30 minutes.

I actually loved the taste of the chicken browned in pepperoni oil, and thought it was a neat idea. It is good for low-carb diets. The only thing I'd do differently is to saute ALL of the pepper...

My whole family (3, 19, 32, 36 yr olds) loved this. It was a little bit of work, with the whole pounding chicken thing. I was thinking about buying thin sliced chicken breasts the next time I ...

Delicious! A little greasy (from the pepperoni), but a very good meal. Another recipe my fiancee brags about!
