Why We Love It
If you’re wondering what to do with leftover chicken, look no further than this recipe! This Pepperoni Pizza Chicken is made in one skillet in under 15 minutes with just four ingredients. What could be better? Or easier?
Okay, so here’s whatcha need to make this pizza chicken skillet recipe come to life!
Leftover Cooked Chicken Breasts
Pepperoni (and any other toppings you enjoy, like green bell peppers or olives)
Keto-friendly Pizza Sauce
Okay, so I’ll walk you through this now, but I promise it’s so easy you probably won’t need me to.
Spread half of the sauce on the bottom of a large skillet. Arrange the cooked chicken breasts inside the skillet. Drizzle the rest of the sauce on top of the chicken.
Slice the mozzarella cheese and lay it on top of the grilled chicken.
Place your pepperoni and any other toppings on top of the cheese.
Cover the skillet and cook on medium-low for about 6-7 minutes or until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese is melty. Optionally, you can finish it under the broiler for about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with basil & serve.
See? Didn’t I tell you it was easy? I like to serve pizza chicken with some keto-friendly vegetables like spaghetti squash (cooked in the oven or Instant Pot) or air fryer zucchini. You’ll never look at leftover chicken the same once you see how it comes to life in this recipe!
