3 cups tomato sauce
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 oz. parmesan cheese, grated
4 oz. mozzarella, shredded
2 oz. pepperoni, sliced thin
- Adjust oven rack to the middle position and preheat oven to 450F. Spread the tomato sauce in a 9x13 baking dish.
- Pat the chicken dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Spread the parmesan in a shallow dish, then add the chicken, turning to coat. Lay the chicken on top of the tomato sauce. Bake for 15 minutes.
- Remove the chicken from the oven and sprinkle the mozzarella and pepperoni on top. Increase the oven temp to 475F and continue to bake until the cheese melts and the chicken is cooked through (about 5 minutes). Internal temp should read 160F.
