Pepperoni and Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Breast

Pepperoni and Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Breasts from Kathrynseppamaki.com #realfood #glutenfree #grainfree

I have been really inspired in the kitchen this past week. And the other night as I was looking through my site and looking at my grain free Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe when I starting thinking about what other meat and cheese combos I could put inside a stuffed chicken breast. I thought about pepperoni and mozzarella stuffed chicken breasts and just knew that I had to make it! So I did!

I paired this chicken with a side of zucchini spaghetti with sauteed mushrooms and onions in marinara sauce and it was absolutely delicious! I will definitely be making this again!

It is naturally gluten and grain free! Pair this with gluten free pasta for a great gluten free meal.  Or do what I did and pair with zucchini pasta for grain free dinner!

Here is the version for one!
