Pizza Topped Grilled Chicken Sandwich

Who doesn't love pizza and chicken?  Then you combine those two, I mean honestly who can resist!  First of all these were delicious.  Second, these were delicious.  Third... you guessed it these were delicious.  I did have to change them up a bit though because it is currently cold and raining in east Texas... in fact it is supposed to rain for the next several days.  In Texas we have two seasons summer and winter... we really don't get a fall or spring... I guess I shouldn't complain to much though because our winters really are fairly mild.

So instead of grilling I cooked the chicken up in a skillet on med-med high.  When the chicken was cooked through I placed it on top of the bottom bun, topped it with pizza sauce, pepperoni, and cheese.  I then popped them under the broiler on high for a few minutes just until the cheese started to turn brown and bubble.  Place the top bun on the sandwich and you are good to go!

4 Fresh Chicken boneless, skinless chicken breasts, about 8 oz each
salt and pepper
6 tablespoons prepared pizza sauce
4 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
2 oz pepperoni slices
4 buns
Heat a gas or charcoal grill to medium and oil the grates.
Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper.
Grill the chicken until no longer pink inside and the juices run clear, 20-25 minutes, flipping once.
When the chicken is almost finished, top each with 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce, some cheese, pepperoni, and a little more cheese.
Close the grill and cook until the cheese is melted.
Transfer the chicken to the buns to serve.
