Mealtime Makeovers...Patience makes perfect! PDF Print E-mail

As I sat and pondered what I could make for a small get together we were hosting at our house, my mind drew a blank. I wanted something easy, that didn’t require a lot of hassle, but would still be something anyone could eat. That’s not too much to ask, is it?
My husband says, “What do you cook that everyone always likes?” My response was a blank stare. Why is it that when we need to think of something, the thought never comes to us. Then, the next day it hit me. My grandma had just given us some chicken breasts so I thought I would use those up. Why not make them into an easy to eat pizza. Paper plates are all the tablewear necessary.
Perfect!
Although this recipe may take all day, believe me when I say it is well worth the wait. Tender chicken, buttery, cheesy garlic flavor–what is better than that? Sitting down to enjoy good company and this delicious dish was just what I needed that weekend!

 

Chicken Fajita Pizza

 

1 tube refrigerated pizza crust
3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1-1/2 cups chicken stock
1 stick salted butter (1/2 cup), slightly melted
2 tablespoons garlic salt
1 package fajita seasoning
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1 cup mexican style cheese
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------        Place chicken breasts and chicken stock in a crockpot on low-medium heat for 6-8 hours. Shred the chicken and remove from crockpot saving the leftover stock. Place shredded chicken into a medium skillet. Add the fajita seasoning and 1/4 of the chicken stock and let simmer 5-7 minutes stirring occasionally. Discard remaining stock.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Meanwhile, spread crust evenly in a 9x13 inch greased pan. Mix the garlic salt and slightly melted butter in a small bowl. Spread the butter mixture over the crust and bake in oven for 5 minutes.
Remove crust from oven and spread chicken over the crust evenly. Top the pizza with cheeses and bake 12-15 minutes or until crust is no longer doughy.
Serve with salsa and sour cream.
