Chicken Pizza Recipe

Chicken Pizza Recipe

As a busy mom who loves to cook I am always trying to come up with ways to make dinner easier while keeping it healthy and fun.  The best part about this chicken pizza recipe is that it can be made with lots of different toppings based on what you have in your fridge and is a great way to utilize left overs.  It is also quick to make and doesn’t make a big mess of your kitchen.  Personally I use one chopping board, a fork, and a knife to keep from having a lot of dirty dishes.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Bake Time: 20 minutes at 400

Here are the grocery items I used:

  • 1 left over roasted chicken (shredded)
  • 2 slices of Naan (whole wheat)
  • 1 red bell pepper (sliced)
  • 1 half of a red onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup of mixed Italian cheese
  • 1/4 cup of Feta cheese crumples
  • 1 Tbsp. of Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp. of Garlic Paste

So the only real prep for this meal involved shredding some left over roasted chicken I had bought at the supermarket and slicing and cutting the red bell pepper.

Once these things have been done you can pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees and move on to assembling your pizza.  For my base I chose some whole wheat Naan bread because for me they are the perfect size for a personal pizza.  Of course you can use any type of Naan, we just use the whole wheat because it is high in fiber.  I mixed the garlic paste and olive on top of the Naan split between the two slices.  If you would like however I imagine a nice barbeque sauce would also be delicious as a base.

Once the sauce is on I then sprinkled the cheese mixture on top of the sauce evenly between the two pizzas. You can use whatever cheese you would like on the pizza but for me I love a nice Italian blend and feta.  It will work however with any shredded cheese you have in the house or whatever is your favorite.

After the sauce and cheese I then placed both the red onion (which I bought pre-diced) and the red bell pepper all over the pizza’s.  I chose red onion and bell peppers but really you could also include other veggies like tomatoes, mushrooms, or hot peppers.  Whatever you have the time to prepare and prefer.

Then the chicken goes on top of everything else for the final prep step.  I chose to use a left over rotisserie chicken that I had bought the previous day from our local supermarket.  This was an easy way for me to repurpose some left overs.  Although, you should be able to use any left over chicken you might have at home and just shred it with a fork.

Once that is all done I just pop the pizza’s in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.  You might want to keep an eye on them though because everyone’s oven is different and it might take more or less time depending on the size of bread you chose to use.

Hope you enjoy! Let me know how it turns out 🙂

Mother’s Day Craft

The finished product!

This project turned out to be a lot of fun and was even something I could include my child in.

 

Items you will need: terracotta pots, water proof or outdoor paint, paint brushes, potting soil, flowers of your choosing, and painters tape.

For the chevron printed pot I first laid down some cardboard and started cutting and sticking painters tape around the pot.

Then I carefully painted the pot and let the paint dry

Afterwards I peeled the painters tape off and the finishing touches.

After everything dried I put some soil in the pot and planted some new flowers.

The great thing about this project is that you can customize the pot to whom ever you are making it for and let your creative side out!

Welcome to my blog

Welcome to my blog

Welcome all to my very first blog. I’m hoping that this can be a place for mothers of all kids to gather and share information about things that can help make our lives a little easier. My name is Sarah and I am a working mom of a wonderful two year old boy and very supportive husband! Some of my very favorite things to include reading, crafting, cooking, and finding ways to simplify my life.

My current project is crafting mother’s day presents for many of the wonderful women and mothers in my life that my two year old can help with. I plan to share pictures and tips later this week that will also go on my Pinterest page. Wish me luck!
