Chicken with Pepperoni-Marinara Sauce

This is kid-friendly deliciousness. I'm sure this Cooking Light recipe will be a repeat in our house given its ease and comforting flavors.

Chicken with Pepperoni-Marinara Sauce
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
16 pepperoni slices, coarsely chopped
1/4 tsp. oregano
1 1/2 cups marinara sauce
1 Tbsp. basil
2 tsp. olive oil
1 1/2 lbs. boneless chicken breasts, halved
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 cup mozzarella cheese

Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat, and cook garlic and pepperoni until garlic begins to brown, stirring frequently. Add oregano, and cook 30 seconds. Add marinara sauce, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in basil.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, coat skillet with olive oil. Cook chicken, sprinkled with pepper, until thoroughly cooked. Top chicken with marinara sauce and cheese. Serves 4.
