Quick, easy, and delicious - perfect for lunch! Plus, it's a great way to use up leftover grilled chicken. all I had to do was sautee some peppers. I used red and green for some added color and flavor to go along with the thin sliced red onion. I used a thin crust boboli bread shell and our favorite bbq sauce. I also used a Mexican blend cheese but I'm sure any cheese would do as long as it gets nice and bubbly! Overall, very tasty!

I made this as a last minute dinner for my three boys, leaving myself out as I'm suffering from some kind of summer sickness. I used a full pound of chicken breasts, red pepper instead of green (that's what we prefer), and as a pre-baked crust, I used 1 sheet of Pillsbury crescent roll dough baked as a pizza crust. I did not have the kind of Kraft cheese that the recipe called for so I used just plain old sharp cheddar cheese. This recipe was incredibly simple, lent well to substitutions so I could use what I had on hand, was cost effective to make (most of the ingredients I used I couponed) and the boys inhaled it. Serves six? Psh. THREE. No leftovers


I've made a version very similar to this, with the exception of using a gluten free pizza crust and I like to bake it on my gas grill. I have never tried the cheddar with Philadelphia cheese, but I intend to see if I can find that version of cheese and make this again!
