Chizza - Pizza Chicken Recipe
Total time: 1 hour
Pat chicken dry and season with 1 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper.
In a large broiler-safe skillet over medium-high heat, add oil and pancetta. Cook until crisp. Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate.
Add chicken to skillet. Sear until browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Pour off all but 1 Tbsp. oil from skillet.
Add garlic, anchovies (if using), capers, and chili flakes to skillet. Sauté 1 minute. Add tomatoes, basil sprig, and remaining salt and pepper. Cook, crushing tomatoes with a spatula, about 10 minutes.
Heat oven to 400°. Add chicken to skillet, transfer skillet to oven, and cook, uncovered, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and scatter bocconcini over chicken.
Place skillet under broiler until cheese bubbles, about 3 minutes. Garnish with pancetta and basil leaves and serve.
