Pizza Chicken

This is a dish I make ahead for my kids, to have on hand in the fridge for 'snacks'. Loralei loves dipping things, be it carrots/celery in Sunflower seed butter, or anything in red sauce, so this works great. I call it pizza chicken because the oils from the pepperoni flavor the chicken enough to give it a pizza flavor, and then dipped in sauce, it is great! Plus, who doesn't love throwing frozen stuff in the slow cooker and coming back to delicious dishes?

Pizza Chicken
2 Chicken Breasts (frozen)
1/4 White Onion (diced)
1/4 C sliced Pepperoni (Applegate Farms is a Paleo Option)
Italian Seasoning
Garlic Powder
Red Sauce (For Dipping)

Place frozen chicken breasts in the slow cooker. Sprinkle seasonings over chicken and add in diced onions. 
Place pepperoni slices on top of chicken.

Turn on low for 4-6 hours (depending on chicken size). I cut mine into strips and serve with red sauce (whatever vegetables are in the house, with organic canned tomatoes and spices, pureed in food processor) for dipping.


  1. this. looks. AWESOME. doing it RIGHT NOW because i just can't wait to try it. thank you for this!!!

  2. btw- just read your profile; my hubby was separate from the USMC last june! :D

  3. It is great, Colton is chowing down on it now! The pepperoni oils give the chicken so much more flavor than just the herbs alone! Today is actually our EAS, so it is kind of a bittersweet day for me. You know how all-consuming the Marine Corps is, so now to think that that is over is just so weird!!
