Barbecue Chicken Pizza

This was so easy and so good and so healthy! Definitely making it again.

Barbecue Chicken Pizza
by Skinny Recipes For Diets on Tuesday, February 8, 2011 at 1:27pm

Serves 4
1 cup pizza sauce
1 12-inch Italian pizza crust (for convenience I use whole wheat pitas... that will change the nutritionals)
8 green pepper rings
1 tomato, sliced
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
4 ounces cooked chicken breast, sliced about 1-inch thick, with all visible fat removed
2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
1 cup reduced-fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Spread the sauce evenly over the pizza crust. Add the pepper, tomato, mushrooms and chicken. Drizzle barbecue sauce over the pizza and top with cheese.
Bake about 12 to 14 minutes. Cut the pizza into 8 slices and serve immediately.

Taco Chicken
Click to print recipe text only

1 lb. chicken breasts or thighs (I can tell you right now that I'm a breast girl and Sara prefers thighs.)
A couple of juicy limes
A splash of red wine vinegar
2-3 cloves garlic, pressed or coarsely chopped
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper

Juice the limes and combine with a couple splashes of red wine vinegar. Add garlic. Pour over chicken. This will not completely cover the chicken; just turn it occasionally as needed. Marinate for at least 4 hours, no longer than 8.

Heat an outdoor grill (you can also use a grill pan inside. Or your broiler in your oven.) Combine salt, chili powder, cumin, and black pepper in a small bowl. Remove chicken from marinade and rub the spices all over the chicken. Isn't raw meat disgusting-looking?
