Not A Recipe

I just thought for those of you who missed this last month of dinner group.... I am putting a group together to make a quiet book for our little chillin's..... I know some of you are interested, but I cannot remember who told me they were..... It is going to be done just like our dinner group. You will make one page for however many girls there are and they will do the same for their page... Then we can get together and share. I want official numbers by beginning of June! If you have a friend that would like to do it too.. why not, bring them along.... just let me know. I will need all of the email addresses of everyone...... Thanks again! Can't wait to see everyone again.. feels like forever!

Parmesan Chicken

Parmesan Chicken:
3 chicken breasts, thawed if frozen
1 c. bread crumbs
1-2 c. spaghetti/tomato sauce
1/2 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded (optional)

Preheat oven to 375. Cut each chicken into strips or bite size pieces. Wet each piece in water or egg and coat with bread crumbs. Place chicken in casserole dish. Cooke for 30 minutes. Then pour tomato sauce/spaghetti sauce onto chicken, add mozzarella cheese to the top and bake for the remainder of the time, for 15 minutes covered. Serve with mashed potatoes, or pasta with veggies.

BBq Chicken Pizza

5-Minute Pizza Dough Recipe

2 1/2 c. flour
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 cup hot water (120-130°, use a candy thermometer for accuracy if you're not sure)
1 Tbsp. Rapid Rise or Bread Machine yeast
2 Tbsp. olive oil

Preheat oven to 500°. Mix dry ingredients together. Add hot water and olive oil. Mix for five minutes (I use my Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook, but you could do this by hand, too). Let rest 10 minutes. Press dough on pizza pan, pizza stone, or jelly-roll pan. Bake at 500° for 3 minutes. Take out of the oven and cover with toppings. BBQ sauce, mozzerella cheese, smoked gouda cheese, grilled seasoned chicken and red onions. Return to the oven and bake 8-10 minutes more. Makes one large pizza (16-18 inches).

THe dough is already made for you so just cook as directed

This is also really good cooked on the grill. Just brush olive oil on your grill and corn meal on the dough so it won't stick. Cook one side for a few minutes, and then flip. Add toppings and finish cooking. I think it is easier to make more smaller pizzas on the grill instead of one big one.

Cut excess, and press all the away around with fingers or spoon to get a good seal) Flute edges (cover with thin strips of tinfoil to keep edges from burning.) Cut slits in the top of crust.
