Combine my favorite cuisine (Thai) with pizza and what do you get? Thai Chicken Pizza! No sense in spending major bucks at CPK for this one. You can make this dinner for just you or you and a friend for under $10.00. I even used my toaster oven for this one! This is too easy and so good! I chose to purchase bottled peanut sauce for the convenience factor but you can also make peanut sauce with ingredients you might already have in your pantry (peanut butter, soy sauce, sugar and vinegar)—I‘ll give you the details below if you rather go that route and save even more money! So make sure you read the recipe all the way through before you go to the store.
Here’s all you’ll need:
- 1 skinless and boneless chicken breast, cooked and thinly sliced
- 2 whole wheat flour tortillas (8 -10 inch size)
- ¼ cup Thai peanut sauce (found in Asian section of grocery store –if you want to make your own see Step 3 below)
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1 -1/2 cups of mixed frozen vegetables, thawed * (see my note at end about veggies)
Step 1: Cook your chicken breast. Heat your toaster oven to 400 degrees. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and place in the toaster oven for 20 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove and slice into ¼ pieces. Set aside.
Step 2: To make one pizza at a time. Place one tortilla in the toaster oven for 3-4 minutes until its lightly browned. Remove from oven.
Step 3: If you want to make your own peanut sauce here’s how: Combine 3 Tb peanut butter, 1 Tb soy sauce, 2 teaspoons vinegar (seasoned rice vinegar is best), and 1 teaspoon sugar in a bowl and combine until creamy. Like this…
Step 4: Assemble your pizza. Layer 2 tablespoons of peanut sauce, sprinkle with cheese, top with chicken and then some tjhawed frozen veggies. Now sprinkle some more cheese on top.
Step 5: Now bake for 10 -15 minutes at 400 until the pizza is hot and cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining tortilla.
I love using tortillas for the crust because I am a thin crust kind of gal but is you like thicker crust go for one of those pre-made, single serve, Boboli type crusts. You can’t go wrong with this super easy recipe.
* Frozen Veggies: There are many types to choose from asian style, stir-fry, summer veggies, sweet peppers… Just pick the variety that you like best. Here are two kinds that I like best. The first one is at Albertsons and the peppers are from Trader Joes.
