10,000 Hits!! YEA!!You like me! You really like me! And I like you too. To celebrate this momentous occasion, I'm re-posting the biggest post of my last 10,000 hits and that has definitely been the pepperoni chips.
1 package turkey pepperoni
Preheat oven to 350º. Line pepperoni up in a single layer on a cooking tray with edges. Cook in oven for 8-10 minutes. Make sure to be vigilant against burning. Remove from oven when pepperoni looks visibly smaller, richer in color and crispy. Blot with paper towel. Store in ziplock bag to retain crunch.

After the chicken has rested drizzle with olive oil and a little salt and pepper. Then, some basil that's been cut into a chiffonade- little strips. Note: You can always use some balsamic vinegar as well, but I like just the olive oil!

8 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced 1/2 inch thick
1 large beefsteak tomato, slice 1/2 inch thick
6 basil leaves, cut into strips

Preheat a grill to medium heat. Season each chicken breast by rubbing with the roasted garlic clove, and then liberally sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill each seasoned chicken breast until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees and juices run clear. Immediately top hot chicken with sliced mozzarella and tomato. Cover and let rest for 5 minutes. Drizzle each breast with olive oil and the optional balsamic vinegar as well as additional salt and pepper. Top with sliced basil and enjoy!
