BBQ CHICKEN PIZZA TOAST
For the toast part of this dish, I recommend using a sprouted grain product. I’m not a huge fan of the sugar (disguised as fructose, glucose or corn syrup on the label) that they add to breads.
The benefit of sprouted grain bread like Ezekiel is the way it’s digested in the body. Sprouting breaks starches down into simple sugars so they easily digest. Ezekiel breads are also 100% non-GMO.
I find they are a bit on the pricier side but, since they are stored in the freezer you won’t lose a single slice to mold or staleness.
It’s my mission in life to get my white bread loving fella to jump on board with this. It’s taking a little longer than I hoped … but hey, he did love this Chicken Fried Brown Rice so, baby steps it is. 😉
Apples are coming into season, now that we’ve hit Autumn, known as the Time of the Harvest. I’m really going to make a conscious effort this Fall to focus on eating what’s available locally and eating in season.
The tartness of the apple adds a nice punch to this meal. If you are looking for yummy chicken pizza topping combinations, apple is ah-mazing.
HOW TO MAKE PIZZA TOAST – Step by Step Images
Assemble your pizza toast by layering the toasted bread with:
- BBQ sauce
- cooked chicken ( I use leftover rotisserie! )
- thinly sliced apples & red onions
- finish it off with a sprinkle of marble cheese
Put it all under the broiler for 2-3 minutes.
Wait until the cheese is bubbling and melted.
Cut in half and eat, very properly with a knife and fork. 🙂
Simple meal, made fancy! Maybe break out a nice glass and the ‘good china’.
This was quick and easy, guilt free comfort food.
I paired it up with a simple salad with balsamic dressing and felt completely satisfied.
I hope you treat yourself to this one!
