Ingredients:

- 2 cloves minced garlic

Preheat broiler to high. Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add garlic and pepperoni and cook for a few minutes until garlic starts to brown, stirring frequently. Add oregano and marina sauce and bring to a boil. Turn heat to low and add basil. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with one teaspoon olive oil. Sprinkle chicken with a little bit of kosher salt and fresh pepper. Add chicken to skillet and cook for 5 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Transfer chicken to a baking dish and spoon marina sauce over the top. Sprinkle evenly with cheese and broil for several minutes until cheese melts. Remove from broiler and enjoy! If you'd like a printer-friendly version, Click Here.
