Pizza Chicken Bake

As a dinner, chicken has a lot going for it. It’s cheap, healthy, hearty, and easy to fix. And most people like it – once in a while. But when you lean too heavily on chicken for dinner, it starts to get a little boring. Even if your family doesn’t actually say anything, you kind of get the feeling they’d be a lot more excited about a nice hot pepperoni pizza.



This Pizza Chicken Bake has everything you love about chicken and everything you love about pizza, all in one pot. It’s got healthy, protein-packed chicken breasts for the base, swimming in a sauce of tangy tomatoes, spicy pepperoni, and gooey cheese. And it’s really easy to make: just brown the chicken, load it in a casserole dish with all the other ingredients, and bake.
