My “What’s for Dinner Tonight?” recipe for Wednesday night was for Thai Chicken Pizza! The flavors in this were fabulous! It’s so different than your average cheese and pepporoni pie, so it’s a really great way to expand your palate a bit!
What’s for Dinner Tonight, Week 1
Thai Chicken Pizza
(Recipe adapted from Rachael Ray)
1 pizza dough, any brand
½ cup peanut satay sauce plus 2 tablespoons
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 package (2 cups) shredded provolone or Monterey Jack cheese
½ red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons grill seasoning
1 lb chicken breast tenders
1 tablespoon honey
4 scallions, chopped
1 cup bean sprouts
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
¼ cup chopped peanuts
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Form pizza crust on pizza pan or cookie sheet.
Top with peanut satay sauce; spread it around as you would pizza sauce.
Sprinkle the pizza with some crushed red pepper flakes then top with cheese and peppers. Bake until golden and bubbly, 15 to 17 minutes.
Preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat (or use a sauté pan). Combine vegetable oil, soy sauce, remaining satay sauce, grill seasoning and honey.
Add chicken and coat evenly with mixture.
Let stand 10 minutes then grill (or sauté) chicken tenders 2 to 3 minutes on each side until firm. Slice chicken into very thin strips.
Top the hot, cooked pizza with chicken, scallions, sprouts and cilantro. Garnish with peanuts, cut and serve.
MMM! This was soooo good! This chicken was super moist, and the peanut flavor was amazing!
