Tomato sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C / 400 °F.
  2. Mix together all the ingredients for tomato sauce until combined, and transfer to a baking dish. Set aside.
  3. Cut a slit on the side of each chicken breast. Take care not to cut all the way through.
  4. Pat the surface of the chicken breasts dry. Sprinkle salt, pepper and Italian herbs all over each chicken breast and rub the seasoning in using your hands.
  5. Stuff pepperoni, mozzarella cheese and baby spinach inside each chicken breast. Transfer stuffed chicken breasts to baking dish.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes, flip and top with a few slices of pepperoni and more mozzarella if you wish, then bake for 20 more minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!


  • If you want, you can first brown the stuffed chicken breasts by searing them on a nonstick skillet for 1-2 minutes on each side before baking. This is an optional step if you want that golden color. But it will still taste good if you skip this step!
  • If you are having trouble with the stuffed chicken falling apart, you can use toothpicks or wooden sticks to help hold it together.
