Fresh Chicken and Veggie Pizza /#FarmersMarketWeek

Welcome to #FarmersMarketWeek! This week I will be sharing 3 recipes that can be made with vegetables and fruits from your local farmers market. There are a lot of possibilities when buying at the Farmers Market, and it was difficult to decide what recipes to share this week. But I narrowed down the possibilities to recipes I think you will love! Todays recipe is a Fresh Chicken & Veggie Pizza! It is full of flavor and tastes amazing!



Building this pizza was fun! I picked all our favorites that we like on our homemade pizzas. This one is topped with store bought pizza sauce, grilled chicken breasts, onion slices, grilled corn, and fresh avocado. I piled it all on a pizza crust that is long and thin, with a light, chewy crust. The flavor and texture is a winner! 

After putting the pizza together, I grilled the pizza instead of using the oven. It gave the pizza an amazing taste that was a bit different, and very tasty! Give it a try!


Fresh Chicken and Veggie Pizza

1 Long Pizza Crust (Trader Joes)
1 jar favorite Pizza Sauce
1  slice of Onion
1 raw 8 oz. Chicken Breast
Black Pepper
Garlic Powder
1 Corn on the cob
Fresh Avocado


Slice the onion into a few slices, then place the onion into a foil square, and top it with a pat of butter. Sprinkle pepper over the onion. Close the foil around the onion slices.

Wrap the corn in foil, after sprinkling it with pepper. Add a butter pat to the packet, then close the foil.

Sprinkle the chicken breast with black pepper and garlic powder. 

Place the chicken and corn on the grill and cook until done.

After the chicken is done and removed from the grill, unwrap the corn and place it on the grill to get brown. If additional butter is needed, cut a pat of butter and roll the butter over the corn as it sits on the grill. Turn as needed until it is as brown as you want it to be.

Remove the corn from the grill, and cut it from the cob.

Place a piece of foil on a cookie sheet. Place the pizza crust on the foil and start covering the crust with the pizza sauce.

Add the cheese to the pizza.

Top the pizza with shredded chicken, corn and onion pieces. The baking sheet is only used to carry the pizza to the grill. Anything sturdy can be used.



Set the grill to high heat. It takes approx. 12 minutes on the grill.

When the pizza is done, return it to the baking sheet. Chop half of the avocado into small bites and place them on the top of the pizza.

Enjoy your pizza!

Grilled Pork Loin / #FromOurDinnerTable



One of my favorite ways to cook in the summer, and occasionally in the winter, is on the grill. Even with the excessive heat, I love to BBQ several times a week. The  aroma of the food on the grill is both comforting and enticing. So, I am excited to be participating with a group of food bloggers to showcase foods that are great for grilling!

Today I made a simple Southwestern Grilled Pork Loin. It is rubbed with a couple spices and a store bought marinade, placed on the grill, and let the grill do it's job! You are going to love it!

Grilled Southwestern Pork Loin Sandwiches

(makes approx 7-8 sandwiches)

(printable recipe at end of page)


4 Pork Tenderloins (approx, 2 lbs each)

Black Pepper-sprinkled liberally 

1 tablespoon Garlic Powder

1/4 cup Carne Asada Marinade

Frozen Corn Niblets

Onion Slices

Buns


Preheat the grill on medium high. Place the pork loins in a bowl. Sprinkle them with garlic powder, black pepper, and marinade. Rub the mix on the pork until they are covered.


Wrap each piece of pork in aluminum foil. Place on the grill. I cooked the pork at 350 degrees, for 7 minutes with the foil left on the pork.



I added a small pouch of frozen corn and some onion slices to the grill. I love onions on almost everything, and I think they always improve the flavor of pork. Drop a medium slice of butter on top.



Close the packet up and add the pouch of corn to the grill. Bring the internal temperature of the pork up to 140 degrees. 


Once the temperature gets to 140 degrees, remove the foil and place the loins back on the grill and continue to cook until they reach 145 degrees.



Remove pork from the grill. You want your pork to be juicy and tender. Let the pork rest on a cutting board or plate for about 15 minutes. The residual heat will continue to cook the loin, helping the juices to settle and creating an amazing, incredible flavor. Slice the pork into thin slices for your sandwiches. 



Drizzle some marinade over the pork slices, and add some onions from your veggie pack. Enjoy this incredibly tasty pork tenderloin sandwich!

Grilled Tri Tip and Roasted Corn Salad / #SundaySupper


    Have you had roasted corn this summer? It is definitely my summer food obsession this year. I just can't get enough of the flavor that comes from roasting corn on the grill, letting the flames lick the kernels of the corn. It's such an incredible, over the top flavor! 
    I used tri tip to make this salad, but the meat is certainly interchangeable. Chicken and pork work really well.
