Pizza-Stuffed Chicken Roll Ups

Chicken dinner just became pizza night with pepperoni and olive-stuffed cutlets topped with cheese and marinara sauce.

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken cutlets
  • 4 slices provolone cheese
  • 12 slices pepperoni
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons oregano

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees, and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a flat surface, lay out one chicken cutlet and top with 1 slice of provolone, 3 slices of pepperoni, a tablespoon of sliced olives and 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes. Loosely roll and set aside, seam side down. Repeat with remaining chicken and filling.
  3. In a small bowl, combine breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Dredge each roll in egg and in breadcrumbs, and place seam side down on the prepared sheet.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes. Top each roll with marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese and oregano. Return to the oven to melt the cheese, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
