Basically… if Chicken and Pepperoni Pizza had a baby, THIS would be IT!

Hey Hey, you guys!  It’s chicken loving ME, still here, still going strong. But HEY, at least it’s now 50-degrees out there and I can finally come out of my winter shell!

AND! Daylight Savings 4EVA!!

Please, nobody touch that clock ever again. PLEASE! Let’s just let it be. Let it stay this way. Please… I beg you, government people. OR I’m going to make you come over and put my kids to bed ON TIME every time that we need to do this clock-switcharoo thing. I need my after hours mommy time and they need their sleep. Rant over.

Also. I have a deep and possibly inappropriate love for cheesy pepperoni pizza. It’s so deep that I refuse to eat it, because if I start eating it, there’s no stopping me. I can inhale a large pepperoni pizza pie all by mahself. That’s the truth, boo. I’m baaaaaad.

Therefore, to save a bit on the carbs and to give it a bit of a face lift, I slammed all that pepperoni deliciousness on top of my chicken and, yeah, I ate it.

The complete truth is that I wanted to make pizza, but I was too lazy to make the crust, so my on-the-spot food brain scanned the kitchen and landed on cheese, chicken, pepperoni, panko crumbs and milk. Without a trip to Little Caesars and to the grocery store, my two favorites, pizza and chicken, came together in the most delicious way possible! I owe them one.

It was seriously so good, so warm and so flavorful, it almost felt like sophisticated college food.

Putting dinner together is a juggling act, I know, but all this awesomeness can be done in one skillet.
Oh and… 4 minutes on the stove and 30 minutes in the oven.

Let’s just get it going with chicken and panko crumbs, the rest will follow. M’kay? Cool.

ENJOY!

    I think I really lucked out because my kids don’t even notice the time change. I mean, the little one “Why’s it still night?” the other morning when I woke him up but that’s the only thing they noticed.

    Also, all the kids would love this chicken! They’re pizza fiends! I definitely need to give it a try.

  4. I can’t find where to print the recipe. – AND don’t tell me that is a Carb Saver – all I have to do is look at it and gain
