Crave Wednesday: The BBQ Yardbird

There's almost nothing easier than barbecue chicken pizza.  And it's even easier when you make it with prepared...everything.  It's a total cheater pizza.  Which is perfect for our Monday nights.  Monday nights are more of my scramble nights because I've got both boys to entertain while I make dinner.  Friday nights I also have both boys, but if dinner is a little bit late, well it is Friday night.

So on Monday nights, having something like this in my back pocket is a boon.  Pizza, which everyone likes, topped with ready-made chicken, cheese, and bottle of barbecue sauce.  Thatkid even eats the red onion ("purple onion mom")!

The BBQ Yardbird (From Cooking Light)
1 lb refrigerated pizza dough
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1/2 cup sliced roasted chicken breast
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sliced red onion
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

    1. Preheat oven to 425. Roll dough into 14 inch circle.  Spread BBQ sauce evenly over dough, leaving 1/2 inch crust.
    2. Top with chicken, cheese, and red onion.  Bake for 15 minutes.
    3. Sprinkle with cilantro, cut into 8 wedges and serve.

    1. Starting out the week with an easy dinner is the first step in the right direction, I've found!
