Ingredients
 

  • 4 chicken breast
  • 1 jar pizza sauce (or use my homemade recipe link above)
  • 6 ounce shredded cheese
  • 4 ounce sausage
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1/4 chopped red onion
  • 10-12 slices pepperoni
  • 2 tablespoon black olives

Chicken seasoning

  • salt to taste
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • italian seasoning

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Cook bacon and sausage before stuffing inside chicken
  • Take chicken breast and cut them down the middle to split them.
  • Season both sides of chicken with seasonings above. I didn't use salt on the inside since stuffing is salty. Only added salt to the outside of the chicken
  • Stuff chicken with bacon, sausage and cheese. The use a butcher's knot and secure the insides. Or use toothpicks if you don't have butcher's twine.
  • Sauté chicken in a pan then remove twine or toothpicks after. Do not place in oven with twine or toothpicks still on the chicken
  • Place a little pizza sauce at the bottom of the casserole dish then top with sauteed chicken
  • Then add the toppings and place in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.
  • Cool then serve.

Notes

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • How to tie a butcher's knot? Here is a video explaining it. I love this method when stuffing because everything is secure. Far better than just toothpicks. You need butcher's twine not just regular yawn. I had a hard time finding it in stores.
  • Cook the ingredients you stuff the chicken with. Originally, I used raw ingredients but they didn't produce the flavor they should have. Cooking the ingredients they stood out far more inside the dish.
  • Top the pizza stuffed chicken with what you want but my method is a great guide if you're not sure what to use.
