Pizza Stuffed Chicken

Kimi Gaines


I'm in my creative mood today. I took out some chicken breast and was looking in my fridge looking around and saw some pizza sauce, pepperoni & green peppers and so I thought up this recipe. Hope you like it and try it with your family. (Picture doesn't give it justice)
