BBQ Chicken Ranch Pizza

  I had a photo shoot tonight at 6:30, so I knew I wouldn’t have time to make the big Italian Lasagna Bake I had planned.  Instead, I used a very simple recipe from Taste of Home magazine and kicked it up a notch.  The original recipe called for pan cooked chicken and no veggies.  I think it needs the sweet char of BBQ basted, grilled chicken AND the flavors of green onions and tomatoes.

  Not only was it ready fast, but it was incredibly delicious AND, I got to eat my full meal before heading out the door for my shoot! 🙂  TA DA, the recipe trifecta!

  If you can have hubby grill the chicken while you prep everything else, I bet you can be done in 30 minutes!
