This one was found in a cook book, but I can’t remember what cookbook and can’t find it online. So… someone may be mad about copyright eventually, lol

Ingredients:
2 pounds chicken breasts, cubed
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 pound pepperoni slice (look for the lower fat turkey pepperoni if you want)
1/2 cup onion, diced (I just use 1 whole small onion)
1 cup green pepper, diced (1 small)
1/2 cup black olives, sliced (about 1 large can for us)
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon fennel seed
2 chicken bouillon cubes (or 2 tsp loose bouillon)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup dry white wine (I NEVER have any on hand and so just use ½ cup water, works fine)
1/4 pound mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated

In large oven proof pan, cook chicken in olive oil. Add onions and cook until the onions are clear. Add remaining ingredients except pepperoni and cheeses, cover, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes. Turn on oven broiler. Remove lid and stir in pepperoni. Sprinkle cheese and mozzarella. Put under broiler until the cheese browns.

My Thoughts:

As you can see, we call this Pizza in a Pot. I do sometimes add mushrooms as well. The fennel makes the chicken taste sausagey and it really does help quell pizza cravings. And, hey, the kids like it too 🙂
