I've had this version of Hassleback chicken breast knocking around in my head ever since SmokinEdge SmokinEdge posted his take on it and finally got around to cooking it up.

Boneless breasts placed on a bed of marinara with pepperoni and mozzarella stuffed into the cuts. Just dusted some salt, black pepper, granulated garlic and a little shot of kick'n chicken for seasoning then topped with marinara.

I didn't smoke these at all, I just covered with foil and baked at 350° for about 45 min.

I then uncovered them, topped with a dab more marinara and shredded parm, then set under the broiler until the cheese browned a bit.

Served over GF fettuccine.

OK between your pics and SmokinEdge SmokinEdge pics I feel a double dog dare challenge coming on. :emoji_grin:

I know! I feel like the gauntlet has been thrown down on this! hmmm.....Off day saturday... Was wondering what to cook....Think I may accept this challenge! It looks too good to pass up!

Well, I didn't expect my post was a, "Top the last Hassleback Chicken Breast" challenge, but do carry on, gents. I'd love to see what y'all come up with :emoji_sunglasses:.

You had me with the Pepperoni and Mozzarella stuffings.
The flavor the pepperoni brought into the dish was awesome.

Heck yeah, Doug. Love the idea and I'll do this, too...
It was fantastic if I say so myself and heck yes, give it a go. I will definitely do this one again.

Damn that looks tasty!! Would love a serving of it!!
Thanks, and I don't know if I'm going to get any left overs. The wife may have polished the rest off for lunch lol.

Thanks for the inspiration from your take on it, Eric!

I have to say that this was one of the few times that a recipe formulated in my mind actually topped my expectations. I almost went with an Alfredo sauce, but I think that would have been a mistake. It already has plenty of cheesiness with the mozzarella stuffing and parm topping. The marinara brings in another flavor and kind of ties it all together.

Absolutely! There are so many ways to go with these.
 
Wow Doug, this is fantastic and I also must have missed or forgotten Eric's post. I will go back in a minute and see his.

It is funny you posted this as I was putting Hassleback potatoes on the menu this weekend with some roast pork..

I think you did good with out the Alfredo sauce ( Mona would have liked the Alfredo )
I love the whole plate.

Edit: I went back and yes i remember Erics and it was also very nice and I did comment on it way back then, lol.
