The Super-Secret Recipe File: Michele's Pepperoni Chicken Rollups

Editor's comment: ummmmm... pepperoni....
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts       20 slices pepperoni sausage
8 ounces sliced pepperoni sausage       4 slices mozzarella cheese
1 (28 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce       1 pinch garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste       1 teaspoon Italian-style seasoning


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. Pound chicken breasts flat with a meat mallet. Season to taste with garlic powder, salt, pepper and Italian style seasoning.

3. Place 4 to 5 slices pepperoni on each breast and top each with a slice of cheese. Roll up breasts and fasten with toothpicks.

4. Dice 1/2 stick pepperoni and saute in a medium skillet until it has released most of its oil. Remove pepperoni from skillet and set aside.

5. Brown chicken rolls in pepperoni oil about 5 to 10 minutes each side.

6. Place chicken in a baking dish. Combine spaghetti sauce and rest of pepperoni and pour over chicken. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes.

For the cheese fanatics among us, I cover the top with shredded mozzarella as soon as it comes out of the oven.
