First, pour tomato sauce in a 9x13 pan. I used Ragu no sugar added tomato and basil sauce. I used 3 cups but that's a bit much. Two cups would be more than enough. I had a lot left over!
Preheat oven to 450*.
Dry chicken breasts, season with salt & pepper, roll in grated parmesan. Place on top of tomato sauce.
Bake for about 15 minutes. My chicken pieces were a bit thick so I baked them for closer to 30 minutes.
Remove from oven, turn temperature up to 475*, and top chicken with a cup of shredded mozzarella and 2 ounces of pepperoni sliced thin.
Return to oven and cook for about 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese melts and chicken is 160*.
I served mine over buttered cauliflower rice. Delicious!
Everybody loved it. Definitely something to make again.
2 cups tomato sauce (I used Ragu sugar free)
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (6-8 ounces each), trimmed
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

This would make a great dinner for Valentine's Day. By the way, Happy Valentine's Day!!!
I love this holiday. Actually, I love any reason to celebrate.
Chuck got me two bottle of good tequila. This will last a while! (FYI, the Solorzano is smoother than the Don Julio anejo which surprised me!)
I also woke up and had a nice card beside me. And this Friday I'm being taken out to Babin's in Kemah and then I get the gift I really wanted: FISH!
Sounds weird, I know. But I wanted fish to feed the stingrays at the boardwalk. It's so much fun. I love it! Much better than roses or chocolates for me. Can't wait!
Today I guess I'll try my hand at making low carb cupcakes. Stay tuned for results. ;)
Do you celebrate Valentine's Day?
