Pepperoni Stuffed Chicken

I had some pepperoni and mozzarella left from making pizzas and I needed to find something to use them up. I found this ctuffed chicken recipe over at Budget Bytes.  It doesn't make for the prettiest picture, but it tasted good and that's all that matters!

1 lb chicken breasts
Mozzarella cheese
1 egg
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
Salt and pepper
Vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350.

Put the flour in a shallow bowl, the beaten egg in another and the breadcrumbs in a third.

Cut a pocket into the side of each chicken breast.  Stuff each piece of chicken with mozzerella and pepperoni and season with salt and pepper.

Coat each piece of chicken in the flour, then the egg and finally the breadcrumbs.

Heat enough oil to cover the bottom of a large frying pan, and fry the chicken pieces until golden brown. Place browned chicken onto a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes.
