Chicken Stuffed with cheese & Pepperoni

Jimmy Hawk


I tried this recipe from this site and it came out great. I used my own spaghetti sauce recipe which gave it my personal taste.

20 Min


20 Min


chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
4 oz
pepperoni, or ham cubed (both)
3/4 c
mexican blend shredded cheese
1 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
4 c
8 oz
macaroni, elbow or any pasta uncooked
24 oz
spaghetti sauce either from jar or own recipe

Directions Step-By-Step

On flat surface cut a pocket in chicken breast leaving three sides intact. Stuff each breast with cheese and pepperoni. Press edges together to seal or use toothpicks if you choose.
In a 12 inch skillet, heat oil on med-high. Cook breasts for 8 minutes, turning occasionally until well browned on both sides. Remove breasts from skillet and set aside.
Slowly add water to skillet and increase heat to high. Bring to a boil, add macaroni, let cook for 4 minutes or until almost tender. Do not drain. Stir in spaghetti sauce until it boils. Return chicken to skillet, reduce heat to medium. Cover and simmer 10-12 minutes or until chicken juices from the center of the thickest breast comes out clear when cut. (170 degrees)
Garnish with extra pepperoni and cheese for a great mouthful of flavor.
