….my camera has been returned!!!! I am so excited to start sharing recipes with you again! 🙂 Let’s start with this chicken that I found quite a while back somewhere I NEVER expected….Wal-Mart.
I have been saving this box F.O.R.E.V.E.R. so I could document it when my camera returned 🙂 I had just been thinking about how I really wanted to get a little meat but didn’t want to make a completely separate stop to purchase a $4.00 piece of chicken when I looked over and saw this! It was a little pricey but I think it was worth it to find a good natural chicken. Pretty much the main thing I’ve been making with it is this:
BBQ chicken pizza. I. am. obsessed. I randomly started craving it awhile back but for some reason I was afraid it wouldn’t turn out. How very wrong I was. I don’t think I’ll ever make a “regular” pizza again! I made some of my whole wheat pizza crust (which makes enough for 4 individual pizzas) a little over a week ago. I gave one crust to my roommate and the rest were turned into this deliciousness. The dough kept pretty well wrapped in plastic wrap in the fridge. I just put it in a warm oven before I used it each time to let it warm up before kneading + rolling it. It definitely didn’t rise as much tonight, but it was still totally delicious 🙂
BBQ Chicken Pizza (serves 1)
- 1 individual pizza crust
- Cornmeal for dusting the cookie sheet (optional)
- 1/4 c. BBQ sauce (I use Gates Original)
- about 3 oz. cooked chicken breast, cut into strips
- 1 green onion, sliced
- 1/2 tomato, seeded + diced
- 1/4 shredded cheese (I used colby jack)
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
- If you have made the whole wheat pizza crust, divide into 4 dough balls. Roll out one and save the rest for later. Or, use a store bought pizza crust, bagel, pita, flatbread….whatever!
- Sprinkle a cookie sheet with cornmeal for a nice crunch on the bottom of your crust, then place the rolled out dough on top.
- Spread about 1-2 Tbsp. BBQ sauce on the crust to just form a light layer.
- Mix the rest of the BBQ sauce with the cooked chicken until evenly coated.
- Arrange the chicken on the crust, then sprinkle on the green onion, tomato, and cheese.
- Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes until cheese is melted and crust is golden.
- Believe me, I know it’s hard but allow it to cool a few minutes before cutting/eating. It is SO much better when you haven’t burned your tongue off and you can actually taste it 😉
So, so, so, so, so good. You must try it.
You know what else I made when I didn’t have my camera?? An amazing cake-like form of a Reese’s peanut butter cup. It. was. amazing. I’ve made it twice. Within about a week’s time. And now I guess I’ll just have to make it again so I can share a picture 🙂 Then I’ll just have to eat it too I suppose. It’s rough, I know 🙂
I have another little recipe to share too, but I’ll save it for another day 🙂
