Tracey Schoenberger (Stuckey)


8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 c bread crumbs
1 tsp dried oregano
tsp garlic salt
salt and pepper, to taste
6 Tbsp olive oil, divided
Tomato sauce:
2 tsp sugar
28 oz diced tomatoes
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp dried basil
tsp dried oregano
salt and pepper, to taste
6 oz pepperoni slices
3 c shredded mozzarella cheese
fresh parsley, minced
cooked pasta, for serving
salad as side dish

Preheat oven to 325. Place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of heavy plastic or waxed paper on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a in thickness. Combine bread crumbs, 1 tsp oregano, tsp garlic salt, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Dip both sides of chicken in bread crumb mixture until evenly coated. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook 2 chicken breasts until browned and no longer pink in the center, about 4 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining olive oil and chicken breasts. Arrange chicken breasts in a 9x13 in baking dish. Combine tomatoes, sugar, 1 tsp garlic salt, basil, tsp oregano, salt and pepper in a saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until heated through, 10-15 minutes. Pour sauce evenly over chicken breasts in the baking dish. Cover tomato sauce with pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, 20-30 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.

Serve immediately over pasta, with marinara spooned over the top, and a side salad (if desired).

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
There was a movie in the 1980s called Seems Like Old Times starring Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase. One of the recurring themes in this movie was Goldie Hawn's character's ability to cook an amazing dish called Chicken Pepperoni. I had never heard of Chicken Pepperoni before, but I thought it sounded delicious.

Kevin's first vacation coming home from the Stuckey Reunion, I took him to see the Indiana covered bridges, The St. Louis Arch, Busch Stadium, the brewery, and the Meramec Caverns. Everything he thought would be a waste of time, actually blew his socks off. He had no idea what all was truly out there.
