Recipe Swap Monday

Monday, June 8, 2009

Good Morning and Good Monday! We had a busy weekend of birthday festivities and are recovering from all of the crazy kid action. I hope you all had a fun weekend as well!

Like most moms, I am always juggling many things at once. The wants and needs of 3 kids alone is enough to keep you hoppin' all day, but throw in the household duties, the wifery, the puppy rearing, and the homeschooling and you've got the makings of a mad mad mommy. So I am all about quick and easy recipes. But they have to taste great because who wants to work hard all day and then sit down to a blah meal, right? Healthy is important too. That's why I love this little ditty.

Barbecue Chicken Pizza (the original idea comes from the California Pizza Kitchen, yum!)

12" Pizza Crust (make your own or use store bought. Boboli works great.)
1 cup (plus more to drizzle) bbq sauce ~ anything sweet and smoky
1/2 cup ranch dressing
boneless skinless chicken breast (2 small-med will do) cooked and cubed
2 tbsp bacon bits
1/2 broccoli steam slightly in micro wave or use thawed frozen florets
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (choose your favorite I like sharp cheddar and smoked gouda)
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion (optional)

Preheat oven to package directions for pizza crust. Toss cooked cubed chicken in 1 cup bbq sauce. Spray edged of crust with non stick spray or brush with olive oil. Drizzle bbq sauce over whole crust and then drizzle ranch dressing over whole crust. Spread chicken over crust. Add broccoli, then onion and cheese. Top with bacon. Bake according to directions for crust, usually 15-20 minutes. Cool slightly, cut and serve with your favorite salad.

Psst: The best chef I know is my little sis, who just started a blog of her own to share recipes and cooking tips. She's just getting started so pop by and welcome her to the wonderful world of blogging if you have a minute. She's got more yummy chicken recipes at The Simple Gourmand.

That looks really good! We came up with BBQ chicken pizza on one of those days when there was nothing to eat except a bit of cooked chicken. I just used the chicken, BBQ sauce, and cheddar cheese to top the crust. It seemed especially good because we were starving, I'm sure! :)

thanks for your comment on my blog today!

Good luck if you do move, it is hard sometimes but for us, it kind of came upon us and we had to really make some decisons (I did anyway) that I never thought I'd have to make.
