As I was looking through the list of chicken recipes, Nathan looking over my shoulder, said, "Oh, pizza chicken, that sounds good!"
When we looked at the recipe, I decided to try it for lunch. But I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I changed it here and there, thinking of the chicken bacon ranch pizza we all love. Everyone gave it rave reviews at lunch.
First I cut the gigantic chicken breasts I bought from Sam's Club in half and laid them on a foil-lined baking sheet. I seasoned both sides with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Next, I added ranch dressing and spread over the breast. I topped it with diced green peppers, mushrooms, deli ham, and onion.
|There were only five of us eating lunch, so two chicken breasts cut in half were plenty.|
I baked these in a 400 degree oven for thirty minutes. I took them out and sprinkled shredded mozzarella cheese on top. They baked for another 10-15 minutes.
This really was good. The chicken was moist, nicely seasoned, and the vegetables gave great flavor and texture. The ranch dressing melted off more than I would have liked, but this will definitely be a chicken recipe I add to the rotation! I will probably even try the actual recipe next time with pizza sauce and pepperoni. Try it sometime, I think you'll like it!
