Life has been a little crazy around these parts... note the lack of blogging about food? To let you know in case you were wondering... BOTH my wee ones started school over the course of the past few weeks which would make one think that I would have more time for blogging about said Food but in all actuality has made me more busy and has resulted in my lack of blogging about said Food. Between Baseball practices for my son, running errands, attending PTA meetings, back to school nights and running the kids to and fro, cooking has been placed on the back burner...literally. However, I recently tried a fabulous pizza recipe that is easy to make on those busy school nights. If you have read my blog before you have become familiar with the fact that we eat a lot of homemade pizza around these parts, not only is it kid friendly and adult pleasing but it can be made up in a jiffy and can be paired up with a bagged salad. PERFECTION. I L-O-V-E recipes like this!
This pizza recipe won myself Brownie points with my husband because one of his favorite dishes is Chicken Cordon Bleu; however, making the original dish takes some time and who has time these days, or at least on busy school nights? This Pizza Recipe comes as close to the real deal and makes the HUBBY HAPPY because it tastes like the real deal and makes the kids happy because they are eating pizza. If you are wanting your family to be a HAPPY Campers all around make this delicious pizza tonight. You won't be disappointed. This is one recipe that is mom tested and Hubby and Kid approved.
Chicken Cordon Bleu Pizza
1 Large Chicken Breast
Butter for Frying
1/2 c. Dried Breadcrumbs
1/2 c. Shredded Provolone Cheese
1/2 c. Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 c. Alfredo Sauce
1/2 c. Ham Steak, Diced
1 Homemade or premade Pizza Crust
1. Beat the egg in a small bowl. In a shallow pie dish add the breadcrumbs. Roll the chicken breast in the breadcrumbs, then dip in the egg and then roll in the breadcrumbs again. Heat a medium skillet over medium high heat and melt the butter. Add chicken breast and fry in the butter on both sides until golden brown and fully cooked. Internal temperatures should be 165 degrees. Remove from pan, cool and cut into strips.
2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Roll out pizza crust onto pizza pan and bake for 7-8 minutes and then top with toppings. If using a premade crust spread alfredo sauce over crust and top with provolone and mozzarella cheeses, chicken and ham. If using a cooked crust return to oven for an additional 10-15 minutes. If using a premade crust bake for 10-15 minutes or until heated through and cheese has melted. Enjoy!
