READY IN: 55mins
YIELD: 1 casserol




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8" X 8" baking pan with nonstick spray.
  • Pound chicken to 1/2-inch thickness. Season with salt and black pepper. Bring an extra-large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Cook for about 4 minutes per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine cream cheese with 1/4 teaspoons garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoons onion powder. Stir until smooth and uniform.
  • Remove skillet from heat; clean, if needed. Re-spray, and bring to medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and bell pepper, and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoons garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoons onion powder. Cook and stir until slightly softened and lightly browned, about 6 minutes.
  • Transfer skillet contents to the bowl with the cream cheese mixture. Mix thoroughly.
  • Chop chicken, and evenly place in the baking pan.
  • Evenly top chicken with creamy veggies, marinara sauce, mozzarella, and chopped pepperoni.
  • Bake until entire dish is hot and bubbly and mozzarella has melted, 20 - 25 minutes.
