Pepperoni Chicken Roll-ups

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Tonight was the first time I made these and let me just tell you; everyone has asked if I can make this again next week.  We all loved it, even little E and he's a tough critic. ;)  This is a take on chicken cordon-bleu, but you don't have to fry this.  It's all done right in the oven and its crispy! So put this on your menu, get the ingredients and wow your family this week!

Pepperoni Chicken Roll-ups

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
24 slices turkey pepperoni
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 large eggs , beaten
1 TB water
1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
heavy-duty round toothpicks
coarse salt
freshly ground pepper
olive oil
1 cup prepared homemade pizza sauce

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Place the chicken breasts one at a time in a ziploc bag and, using a mallet, pound thin. Remove and place on saran wrap on counter. Repeat until all 4 chicken breasts are pounded thin. Season chicken with salt and pepper and top with pepperoni slices and shredded cheese. Roll up beginning with the smallest side and secure tightly with toothpicks.

Lightly brush baking sheet with olive oil. Mix the eggs and water in a deep bowl and dip the chicken rolls in the egg mixture. Place bread crumbs on a plate and roll the chicken in the crumbs, distributing evenly. Place chicken on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes or until completely cooked. Serve the chicken with warm pizza sauce.
