What's for dinner?

Posted by Teapots and Toads at 7:41 AM

Moms were sharing recipes at baby sign class recently and here is a MUST HAVE! Take a jar of salsa and some boneless skinless chicken. Combine the two in a crock pot for 8 hours on low for the most delicious and moist chicken you will ever have. Perfect for tacos!

I've adjusted the recipe and swapped salsa for chicken broth. Now I have chicken to throw in dishes for the week. Here is meal #1 with crock pot chicken.

BBQ chicken pizza from Pampered Chef

Dear Pampered Chef,

You're cookbooks humor me every time I use them. Your placement of products throughout each receipt sends me giggling. I do not own the Ultimate Slice & Grate fitted with a v-shaped blade, but was still able to slice my onion and tomatoes with your average kitchen knife without incident. I do own your bamboo utensils and those were quite useful for mixing up this dish.

Thank you for the entertainment while I cook!

Now for the good stuff, the recipe. I've adjusted it just a bit, but here are the basics.

Grill up one large onion, 4 slices turkey bacon, and 2 garlic cloves until onion is tender and lightly browned. Stir in 1/2 cup smoky bbq sauce and remove from heat.

Stir in 2 cups cooked chicken (nicely shredded from your crock pot)

Take your pizza crust (I use the fluffy tortilla's that look like personal pizza's, but you can use whatever is your favorite.) and spread chicken mix within 1/2 inch of edge. Arrange 2 diced plum tomatoes over pizza. Sprinkle with 1 cup of shredded cheddar and monterey jack cheese. Sprinkle with fresh or freeze dried parsley.

Since I use a tortilla that is already cooked, I just put in the broiler until the cheese melts. If you use pizza dough, but in the oven at 425 for about 18-22 minutes.

Do you ever hide healthy stuff in your food? I do.... beneath all the delicious bbq chicken ingredients is a nice fluffy layer of spinach. Shhhh!
