Pizza Chicken Roll-Ups Recipe

I love the chicken roll-ups my mom made for special occasions, filled with spinach and cream cheese. My own kids wouldn't eat those, so I came up with a pizza-flavored variety the whole family enjoys. —Tanja Penquite, Oregon, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 12 pepperoni slices
  • 8 slices slices part-skim mozzarella cheese

"I really thought I would like this but, I just didn't. Couldn't taste the pepperoni, even though I doubled the amount. My kids wouldn't even try it. Sorry."

"I guess I am not a good "chicken roller". The chicken had no cheese in it when I took it out of the oven. It was all right, but it wasn't great. I may or may not make this again."

"This was surprisingly delicious. I don't know what I expected but I didn't expect it to be so great. It was very moist. I even had leftovers the next day and they tasted even better. Served with a salad. I will be making this again. Make sure you use the pizza sauce not tomato sauce. I don't think it would taste the same. Easy to prepare."

"These are great! Very simple to assemble and they taste wonderful.

I'd like to add that since I first posted this review, I have made these several times and now instead of pounding out the chicken and rolling it up, I just cut a pocket into the side of the breast and stuff the pepperoni in that way. Much easier, in my opinion! :)"

"This is a fantastic recipe, very flavorful. The only change I made was that I breaded it with panko crumbs, italien seasoning, and grated parm. This is very similar to chicken parm but with the added kick from the pepperoni, dont let this discourage you though because if you're someone that wasn't impressed with the traditional chicken parm just keep in mind this dish has a twist. Try it you wont regret it."

"I absolutely love this! It's so super easy! I used as many pepperoni slices as would fit on the chicken (I bought the filets instead of the breasts, it cut down on some time, and they're easier to find in 1 lb packs) and I used shredded mozzarella instead of slices. I also put some sauce in the bottom of the pan while the rolls were cooking."
