Chicken Pizza

Don't you love it when you try a new recipe on a whim and upon swallowing the first bite you know it's a keeper? That happened to me tonight. I bought this cookbook a while back at Sam's Club:

Tonight, I made the chicken pizza found on page 46. It's so fresh and tasty. I have a new passion for pesto thanks to this recipe. I had to share it with my blog friends because I really don't know how anyone could not LOVE this recipe!

Chicken Pizza
{prep/total time: 30 min.}
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch strips
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 prebaked Italian bread shell crust
1/4 cup prepared pesto
1 large tomato, chopped
1/2 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until juices run clear. Place the crust on a lightly greased 12-in. pizza pan. Spread with pesto; top with the chicken, tomato, beans and cheeses. Bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Yield: 6 servings

Voila! {Hubs went back for thirds!! Score!!}
