Frank's Pizza Chicken

The first boss I ever worked for is a family friend, and he is a dang good cook. 

One of my favorite go-to easy weeknight recipes comes from dear Frank.  It's simple to put together, inexpensive, and a total guy-pleaser.  And because you can make it as healthy as you wish, it's a winner in my book! 

(We splurged by adding pepperoni ... worth it, duh)

Frank's Pizza Chicken

3 chicken breasts or 6 chicken tenderloins
Pizza sauce or a can of tomato sauce
Olive oil
Parmesan cheese
Desired pizza toppings (pepperoni, onions, green peppers, black olives, turkey sausage, etc)
Dried oregano

Edit: A few people have asked about whether to use raw or cooked chicken -- you do use raw chicken.  I work from bags of frozen tenderloins that I thaw overnight the evening before.

Season your chicken with salt and pepper.  Place in a 9x13 glass or ceramic dish that has been coated with a very thin later of olive oil.

Top chicken with pizza sauce or tomato sauce (I also sprinkled a little garlic powder on at this point).  Add on your desired pizza toppings.  Sprinkle with oregano.  Top with cheese and cover with foil.  Bake at 350* for approximately 25-30 minutes or until done.

Serve with a big green salad and perhaps some sauteed green beans -- an easy, delicious, and low-carb dinner.


  1. Yum! Do you use raw chicken? I'll have to try immediately.
