Broiled or Just Melted?



I took the photos on how we like our cheese crispy, we love our pizza like that too!


I love the mozzarella when it gets browned, so the trick is to broil it at the end.


I do that with anything topped with shredded mozzarella to include pasta, pizza, chicken parmigiana or anything else smothered in delicious melted cheese.


This one-pan pizza chicken and potatoes is one of our favorite Italian American meal of all time!

Easiest One Pan Meal Ever



When I first made this, I didn't add potatoes, then I thought wow I potatoes and pepperoni taste great together and melted mozzarella just made it even better.


The flavors from the chicken baked made the potatoes crispy and perfectly cooked in no time from the oil in the pepperoni and the seasoned chicken breasts.


I use around 3 to 4 chicken breasts sliced around 1/2 inch thick.


It all cooks pretty quick.

Thinly Sliced Potatoes



The potatoes I use are Yukon gold, you can use any kind of potatoes you like, I prefer these because the sauce absorbs the flavors better to me.


I have used red or russet potatoes also.


Some potatoes require longer cooking, so be sure to slice them thinner if you use a potato that is for boiling not baking.

Chicken Breast Sliced



As I mentioned, chicken breast is much easier to slice when partially frozen.


I like to get them to around 1/2 inch thick, again they cook quickly in the sauce and stay juicy and tender.


If you prefer a stuffed chicken you can slice the chicken even thinner, fill with cheese and pepperoni and bake.


That takes more time and effort, this recipe is an easy one pan pizza chicken recipe.

Other Tips and Suggestions


  1. I like to slice my boneless chicken when it's partially thawed, it's easier to cut.
  2. I season the chicken with fresh herbs when possible, like oregano, basil, and parsley.
  3. I prefer tomato sauce instead of crushed or whole, it seems to cook the chicken and potatoes quicker and evenly.
  4. Adjust your salt and pepper to taste and I like a little heat so add cayenne pepper if you love spicy pizza!
  5. Add anything to this casserole you would add to your pizza

instructions:

How to cook Chicken and Potatoes Pizza Style Casserole

  1. In a 13 x 9 roasting pan, line with parchment paper. 
  2. Place the sliced potatoes on one side. The sliced chicken on the other. Evenly sprinkle with spices, herbs, salt, and pepper.
  3. Place slices of pepperoni over the chicken and potatoes in random order.
  4. Sprinkle the top with grated cheese and pour tomato sauce, evenly over the top.
  5. Sprinkle with more grated cheese, more herbs, spices, salt and pepper over the top. The top with shredded whole milk mozzarella cheese.
  6. Bake for around 40 to 50 minutes (depending on the thickness of potatoes and chicken) on 350 degrees preheated oven until the potatoes are soft and the chicken juices run clear. 
  7. If it starts to dry out add more tomato sauce a little red wine. 
  8. I usually use the extra to make a small dish of spaghetti with the leftover sauce.
  9. I like to broil the top to get the cheese browned.
