Day 27 - Chicken Garlic Pizza


Here's another recipe that would be good for the Super Bowl party! I highly recommend using the ready-made, fresh pizza dough at Trader Joe's. They have both regular & herb and are yummy!!

"A delicious option for homemade pizza! Butter garlic sauce, chicken, tomato, and ricotta and Parmesan cheeses are baked together for a delightfully light pizza."

Ingredients:

1 skinless, boneless chicken breast half

2 tablespoons butter or margarine,

softened

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons chopped green onion

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1 (10 ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust

dough

2 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 cup ricotta cheese

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:

1.

Place the chicken breast in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until no longer pink, about 20 minutes. Drain and cool slightly, then cut into strips.

2.

Meanwhile, in a small skillet over medium heat, melt the butter with garlic, onion and basil. Pour into a chilled dish to cool, and refrigerate until set.

3.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

4.

Roll out the pizza dough, place onto a pizza pan or other baking sheet, and spread the herb butter over the surface using the back of a spoon. Arrange chicken on top, then dot with ricotta cheese. Top with tomato slices, cilantro and Parmesan cheese.

5.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until crust is browned and center is cooked through.
