You know we love to share simple, yet satisfying meals with you here at Meal Prep on Fleek. This recipe is no exception. Start by preheating the oven. Take 4 thawed Chicken breasts and season both sides with sea salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. To make the meat more tender, place it in wax paper and lightly pound with a marinating prep tool (aka meat mallet) about 10 times per breast.
Place the seasoned, tenderized meat in a glass baking dish and cover with foil. Bake chicken as directed and then remove the foil and top with pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese, and ham and pineapple. Return to the oven and bake until bubbly and starting to brown. Remove from the oven and let cool. Add parmesan and red chili flakes. Serve with steamed broccoli or any other favorite vegetable.
