Margherita Variations:

This Margherita chicken is great all on its own, but you can make it even better by adding some of your favorite pizza toppings like olives, pepperoni, or pineappleβ€”or a mix of all three! To make it even tastier, I like to cook the chicken in a mixture of olive oil and butter, but you can just use oil if you’d like.
