This tasty main dish for Pizza Stuffed Chicken combines the classic Italian flavors of pizza with protein-packed chicken to make a tender, delicious meal. Canned tomatoes are the star ingredient, making this a convenient and pantry-friendly recipe. Canned tomatoes are also packed with nutrients, including tons of antioxidants, vitamin C, and cancer-fighting lycopene, the compound that gives tomatoes their bright red color. Lycopene has been shown to help prevent cancer, and people who eat more tomato products reduce their risk of developing prostate cancer. This recipe can be customized with your favorite pizza toppings, from pepperoni to black olives. To sneak in some extra veggies, try stuffing with spinach, broccoli, or green peppers.
This dish couldn’t be easier and makes a great weeknight dinner that’s healthier than ordering in delivery pizza. All you have to do is slice the chicken breast to make a pocket and stuff with sausage, diced tomatoes, and mozzarella. Next you’ll bake the chicken and top with more mozzarella, tomatoes, and grated parmesan. You can feel good about feeding this meal to your family, as it’s full of lean protein from chicken breast, as well as fiber, vitamins, and minerals from canned tomatoes. This meal is also budget-friendly, as canned tomatoes are a great affordable alternative to fresh tomatoes that still provide plenty of nutrients and pack in the same flavor punch. We love serving Pizza Stuffed Chicken alongside whole grain spaghetti and a garden salad to create a balanced, filling meal that everyone will enjoy.
