Direction

Butterfly each piece of chicken, and then pound them out to make sure it’s all flat and even; set aside.

In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup of the marinara sauce, Italian seasoning, chopped pepperoni, 1/4 cup shredded cheese, and the Parmesan cheese. Mix until well combined.

Divide the sauce mix between all 4 pieces of chicken. Spread out over the chicken breast, to within 1/4 inch of the edges.

Gently roll up each piece as tightly as you can, like a burrito. Secure with toothpicks.

Place, seam side down, in a greased baking dish.

Pour the remaining sauce over the chicken and spread out to evenly coat each piece.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 50 minutes, or until meat thermometer reads almost 155 degrees F.

Sprinkle with remaining shredded cheese, and top with whole pepperoni.

Bake for 10-12 minutes more or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Let stand for 5 minutes. Remove toothpicks.Serve!!!
