Tried It Out Thursday: BBQ Chicken Pizza

When I saw this recipe I just knew it was a keeper.  The words:  bacon, chicken, bbq sauce and pizza had me drooling.  I found this recipe over at Ma, What's for Dinner?.  She is the PRO at making delicious foods that your kids will eat (not to mention all adults also).  She is so amazing and creative. You need to check her site out! This one did not let me down.  Everyone raved about it.  They ate every bit of it.  There was even a small fight over the last piece (no trips to the ER thank goodness.).
BBQ Chicken Pizza
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and diced
2 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
8-10 slices bacon, cooked and broken into pieces
1 small onion chopped
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup ketchup
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon dried mustard
1/4 cup brown sugar.
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
 pizza dough or one store bought dough
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and sliced thin
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
In a medium saucepan heat olive oil over medium heat.  Add half of the onions and allow to soften, about 5 minutes. Add in garlic and cook for an additional minute or two. Season with salt and pepper. Deglaze the pan with the vinegar being sure to scrap up all the good browned bits on the bottom.
Next add in your ketchup, tomato sauce, mustard, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce. Turn the sauce down and allow to simmer for about 10 minutes (let it simmer while you get everything else ready.)
 Lay out your pizza dough and stretch it to fit a baking sheet. Stab it with a fork a few times (so it won't puff up in places) and bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and spread a thin layer of sauce leaving a one inch border around the dough. Arrange your chicken, mushrooms and onions (if desired) neatly around the pizza dough. Then arrange jalapeno (I only put this on a little edge of the pizza). Sprinkle with chopped cilantro. Top with plenty of cheese and sprinkle the bacon over top. Return to the oven and bake 8-10 more minutes or until  it is heated through and the cheese is melted.
*The only change I may make next time is to replace the cilantro with some fresh basil. Just to try it out!!
* I had extra bbq sauce leftover. I put it in the fridge and the kids used it as a dip for chicken.
Thanks Alex for a new family fave!!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
