This oven baked pizza chicken has all of the flavors of a cheesy pepperoni pizza, but with more protein and less carbs. It's time for more midweek pizza nights!
Baked chicken breasts have an annoying little habit of drying themselves out. You can combat that in this recipe by making sure to use the flat end of a meat tenderizer (I like to also put the chicken between plastic wrap) and pounding them flat. The chicken will cook faster and more evenly than it will if left in their natural shape, which tends to have a longer skinny end and a very thick end. Getting the middle of the thick end cooked all the way through means the thinner parts and outer portion of the chicken will be dry and tasteless by then. So, #1 lesson for this recipe (or any baked chicken breast recipe): pound 'em flat!
Serve this dish alongside a nice salad or your favorite veggies of choice. You could also bake up some breadsticks or rolls - yum! Enjoy!Print
