One-Pan Pizza Chicken Recipe: A Winner 20-Minute Chicken Dinner

I cannot resist trying new seasonings and spice blends. My recent discovery was the Pizza Sprinkle Seasoning Blend from Trader Joe's. Chicken breasts were on the menu for dinner, and I discovered I had some leftover jarred spaghetti sauce in the refrigerator. This pizza chicken recipe was what developed after scavenging the pantry.

This quick skillet chicken dinner has all the flavors of pizza. You'll need boneless chicken breasts, spaghetti sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, a pizza seasoning blend and a Tuscan seasoning blend or dried Italian herbs. The chicken breasts are coated generously in the pizza seasoning then cooked in a little olive oil until just cooked through. Add the spaghetti sauce and heat through, then top the chicken with the cheeses and Italian spices.

There are other pizza seasoning spice blends out there, so experiment until you find your favorite. This Italian-inspired pizza chicken makes two servings, but it can easily be doubled to feed four. This is a great recipe for leftover spaghetti sauce! I served mine with creamy Italian cucumber salad and spinach tortellini.
