"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."

Yummy! I don't understand people who think this recipe was not easy. Few enough ingredients to make it simple, but enough to make it tasty. Instead of a toothpick to hold the chicken breasts together, I use pieces of raw spagetti. It does the job just as well, and disappears during baking so you don't have to find the tootpick before serving.

We really liked these, especially the kids. I don't like pounding and rolling chicken, so I butterflied them and put the fillings inside, secured with toothpick and browned for considerably longer, and adjusted the cook time a little as they were thicker this way, same concept, filling wrapped with chicken just without the work. Anyway, thanks for sharing, my kids are already asking when I'm making it again.

While I loved this recipe, my husband and I blanched at the sodium and calories for one dish. We substituted turkey pepperoni for the "real" stuff and low-fat cheese as well as finding a low-sodium spagetti sauce. We have also made our own using a recipe from Cooking Light.
