Chicken Enchilada Pizza

169. Do you have any Pampered Chef products? Or should I ask, have you ever been to a Pampered Chef party? The best part is that you can sample delicious foods that you prepare with Pampered Chef products. And you just need E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G they are selling!!

One of The best Pampered Chef items is the Stoneware Large Bar Pan .
I purchased my pan about 7 years ago and have used it over and over and over. This is a super great product. I love to make my deep dish pizza in this pan and it is wonderful for just about anything.

While speaking with a local Consultant Tara, I spotted a recipe on her Pampered Chef Facebook page for Chicken Enchilada Pizza. I didn't have much time to make dinner tonight and thought this would be a delicious, quick and very easy dinner. I dropped by Trader Joes *love* and picked up "Ready to Bake Pizza Dough", Fresh Cilantro, and fresh cooked, chunk chicken. I picked from my garden two handfuls of cherry tomatoes and two hot cherry peppers. These peppers were so hot, and I forgot to wear gloves when cutting them...my fingers are still burning today. You are going to love this recipe...it was ready in 40 minutes. I served a tossed salad and garlic hummus and chips on the side. The comments at dinner where..."This is really, really good! Oooo, What is this? Where did you get this recipe? Delicious...can I have another piece?" *score*
Chicken Enchilada Pizza


Ingredients:

1 pkg (13.8 oz/283 g) refrigerated pizza crust, or my homemade pizza crust recipe here

1⁄2 medium onion

1 jalapeño pepper, or hot cherry pepper

8 oz (250 g) Mozzarella, Colby & Monterey Jack or marble cheese blend (about 2 cups/500 mL grated), divided

2 cups (500 mL) diced cooked chicken breasts

1⁄2 cup (125 mL) mild green taco sauce or tomato salsa

3 garlic cloves, pressed

1⁄2 cup (125 mL) grape tomatoes

1⁄2 cup (125 mL) loosely packed fresh cilantro

1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Lightly brush Large Bar Pan with vegetable oil using Chef’s Silicone Basting Brush. Unroll dough onto bottom of pan, gently stretching and pressing dough to cover bottom. Bake 12–14 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

2. Meanwhile, coarsely chop onion and jalapeño with Food Chopper. Grate cheese with Ultimate Mandoline fitted with grating blade. In Classic Batter Bowl, combine onion, jalapeño, 1⁄2 cup (125 mL) of the cheese, chicken, taco sauce and garlic pressed with Garlic Press; mix well using Small Mix ‘N Scraper®.

3. Remove pan from oven to Stackable Cooling Rack. Sprinkle 1 cup (250 mL) of the cheese evenly over crust; top with chicken mixture and remaining cheese. Bake 6–7 minutes or until crust is deep golden brown and cheese is melted. Remove pan from oven to cooling rack.

4. Slice tomatoes lengthwise into quarters using Utility Knife. Coarsely chop cilantro. Sprinkle tomatoes and cilantro over pizza. Cut pizza into 12 rectangles with Pizza Cutter. Serve using Mini-Serving Spatula.

Cook’s Tips: For a less spicy version, seed the jalapeño pepper before chopping. Monterey Jack cheese can be substituted for the Colby & Monterey Jack cheese, if desired. If desired, 1⁄4 cup (50 mL) medium green enchilada sauce can be substituted for the green taco sauce

That does sound good! May need to delete the "hot" peppers. :-D Have been to PC's parties, but bought more for my children than myself. :)
Have a great weekend.

Thanks!

That pizza looks good and sounds good. I love pizza and I love chicken enchiladas and there they are together. The only pampered chef things I have are the bamboo spoons and I have had them forever. There stuff is expensive at first, but lasts forever. I guess I need that pan.
