Thai chicken pizza is a delcious meal with tons of flavor and is quick and easy thanks to rotisserie chicken and store bought crust.
You guys…I have a kitchen again! It took 5 months, but we are about 95% done with our kitchen remodel. I have a sink, and a countertop, and a stovetop, and my fridge is actually in the kitchen instead of the living room. It’s a wonderful feeling. Paul did such a good job, and I’m so excited to share pictures with you guys. I also plan on doing a full kitchen remodel blog post when that 5% wraps up! (Until then, I’ll be posting photos on my Instagram stories and feed.)
In the end it was worth it, but I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t stressful. It’s really hard not to have a kitchen for 5 months. Especially when you are trying to run a food blog. I cried on more than one occassion. I yelled on more than one occassion. And I picked up weird habits like pacing around the house. Ha. (Read: I went a little nutty.) If you’ve noticed a gap in recipes, I think bacon & egg breakfast enchiladas were my breaking point 😉
We relied heavily on a few different things to keep us feed in the easiest way possible during that time. Some weren’t the healthiest options. (I.e. cheesy gordita crunches from Taco Bell, and philly cheesesteak pizza from Dominos.) But sometimes we got it right, like with our weekly rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. We’d get a big rotisserie chicken and a bag of salad and eat that for a meal about once a week. There was always a little leftover chicken that I’d try to eat for lunch the next day, but I started getting bored of it. I started to think of creative ways to eat the leftovers and wanted to share some of my favorites with you.
Welcome to the leftover rotisserie chicken series!
I have three awesome dishes you can make using rotisserie chicken that I’ll be sharing over the next week. First up is my favorite, Thai Chicken Pizza. I always have peanut sauce and sriracha in my fridge, and this thing comes together in about 10 minutes! Yes!
These recipes will be a little bit different than my typical recipes, in that they are a bit “looser.” Plenty of room for subbing and making it your own based on what you have in the fridge, the time you have, and the amount of people you are trying to feed. If you’re trying to save time, you can totally buy a rotisserie chicken just to make these meals!
I personally make these as mini flat bread pizzas using Flat Out Fold Its. Cut them in half, and spray a little olive oil on them. Then broil for a few minutes until they start to crisp up. While that’s happening, you can mix up your chicken with some peanut sauce, about 1 tbsp per ounce of chicken. Add that and some shredded mozzarella cheese to your flat bread and broil until cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and top with whatever veggies you like. I use diced red pepper, shredded carrots, and cilantro. Squirt on as mush sriracha as you can handle and you have a perfect lunch or small dinner!
