Ricotta and pepperoni stuffed chicken breasts, topped with marinara and mozzarella. A quick and easy weeknight meal that will be loved by the little ones and the big ones alike!
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a 13″ x 9″ pan with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl combine egg, ricotta, 1/4 cup Parmesan, pepperoni, garlic, salt, pepper to taste, and 1 tablespoon chopped Italian parsley. Mix well.
Place about 2 tablespoons of the ricotta filling on the short end of a chicken breast. Gently roll the chicken over the filling and place it, seam side down, in the prepared pan. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts. Pour the marinara sauce evenly over each piece of stuffed chicken. Top with mozzarella, remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan, and remaining 1 tablespoon of chopped Italian parsley.
Cover pan with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 10 minutes. Remove from oven.
Serve with pasta on the side.

But savvy cooks know the slow cooker can be a home cook’s best friend. This recipe is a spin on the traditional Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich. By using chicken breasts, the meal is instantly lightened.
