How to Make Pizza Chicken

To make this pizza chicken, start by marinating the chicken in balsamic vinaigrette. It only needs to marinate for an hour or two. It adds a delicious layer of flavor and definitely gives that extra oomph to the dish.

Once the chicken has marinated it’s time to get grilling. Because the chicken is thinly sliced, it only needs a few minutes per side.

Grill one side and flip. Spread the cooked side with pizza sauce then top with pepperoni and shredded mozzarella (and any other toppings).

As the second side grills the pepperoni gets a little crispy on the edges and the cheese gets all melty. It’s pretty magical.
