Broiled or Just Melted?



I took the photos of 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 meals of all time!

Vegetable Lovers?



You can actually add a layer of vegetables if you would like, eggplant and zucchini work well.


Then of course if you love olives, mushrooms, peppers, and anchovies, feel free to load it up.


This is just a guideline for an easy delicious pizza chicken and you can make your pizza any way you like it.

Tips

  1. thinly slice the potatoes
  2. the chicken breast slice is better slightly frozen and should be around 1/2 thick
  3. baking potatoes work best for softening in the oven
  4. any cheese combinations can be used
  5. broil the top in the end for crispy cheese topping or leave it just melted
  6. use all fresh herbs with possible use a medley of dry seasoning first 
  7. if fresh isn't available oregano, basil, and parsley
  8. I prefer tomato sauce instead of crushed or whole, it seems to cook the chicken and potatoes quicker and evenly however you can use homemade leftover sauce or a bottle of your favorite pasta sauce.
  9. Adjust your salt and pepper to taste and I like a little heat so add cayenne pepper if you love spicy pizza!
  10. Add anything to this casserole you would add to your pizza

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.

It all cooks pretty quick and all flavors of a pizza in one casserole are totally right here in one pan.


Remember you can add whatever you want to your casserole that you love on your pizza.


Mushrooms, peppers, sausage are just a few nice changes if you like your pizza that way.


Enjoy and have fun making this and adapting to how your family likes their pizza!

ingredients:

  • 3 chicken breast sliced 1/2 thick

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.
