Pepperoni Parmesan Crusted Chicken

Happy Monday everybody! How's your weather? Our's is nuts, absolutely nuts. I've seen several memes floating around saying someone p****d off Elsa or that Mother Nature is going through the change, weather is bi-polar and so on. All I know is, I never know what to wear.
What you can count on is this great recipe. Man this was so easy and delicious. Everyone loved it.

Pepperoni Parmesan Crusted Chicken
3 large chicken breast (so big I cut them in half width/depth so I had 6 thinner breast to deal with, this helped with cooking time)
1/2 package of turkey pepperoni (about 3-4 oz and the turkey cuts down on fat and points because y'all know I'm doing WW)
freshly grated Parmesan cheese 1/2 cup
3/4 cup of Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 egg beaten with a little water in a bowl

The bread crumbs, pepperoni and cheese were put into the food processor and blitzed up into a fine crumb. I poured that into a shallow plate. Take the chicken breast and dip it in the egg then into the crumb mix. Place on a nonstick baking sheet or parchment paper lined pan. Bake at 400 degrees until done, about 18 minutes depending on the thickness of the chicken and your oven. I kept an eye on mine and used the meat thermometer. Raw chicken is NOT something you need to be eating.
