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!

Easy Tortilla Pizza / #OurFamilyTable

A long time ago, when my son was growing up, fixing and eating a quick meal every evening was a way of life. My husband and I worked, after school activities were a thing every night, or so it seemed, and finding the time to sit down and have a family dinner was rare. Even years later, it always seems like we are busy, running here, going there, never stopping. Sometimes the answer is a simple meal, that comes together quickly and becomes a favorite. This Easy Tortilla Pizza may be what you have been looking for!

Easy Tortilla Pizza

printable recipe at end of page 

1 raw Chicken Breast (8-10 ounces)
Minced Garlic
Black Pepper
Fresh Jalapeno Pepper
1 Corn on the Cob
Butter
Onion Slices
Mini Tortillas
Pizza Sauce
4 Cheese Mix
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Fresh Avocado
Salsa


Slice the chicken into small, bite sized pieces. Sprinkle with minced garlic and pepper for a great flavor.
Chop the jalapeno pepper into small pieces.
Boil the corn for 10 minutes in water. Let cool a bit, then cut the kernels off the cob. I find the best way to do this without cutting yourself is to place a corn cob holder in the end of the corn and use it to steady the cob as you slice down, cutting the corn off.
Place a teaspoon of butter in a pan and pan grill the corn until it begins to turn slightly brown. Add some onion slices and continue grilling both the corn and the onions until tender. Pan grill the jalapeno pieces in a separate pan unless everyone eating the pizzas like jalapeno.
Start building your pizza. Place the mini tortillas in a large pan on medium heat. Top each pizza crust with some of the sauce and swirl it around the crust covering to the edge. Add the onions, corn, jalapeno, and chicken.
Top the pizzas with the cheese, choosing one or the other or both. You can never have enough cheese! If your cheese is not melting quick enough, place a lid on the pan for a few minutes to quicken the melting process.
Cut the pizza and enjoy! Serve with a side of salsa and some avocado slices!

I hope you find this Easy Tortilla Pizza to be the answer to your busy family dinners!

Smoked BBQ Wings

Did you know that today is National Chicken Wing Day? It is, and I am celebrating with some fellow bloggers by, what else but, enjoying some fun and fabulous Smoked BBQ Chicken Wings! There are so many different ways to enjoy chicken wings, that it is difficult to decide how to make them. They can be fried, of course. But also baked, slow cooked, air fried, grilled and smoked! Then there is the skin of the wing. It can be seasoned, rubbed, dipped, brushed, breaded, sprinkled, and rolled.  Then the flavors. They are endless! Do you want teriyaki, garlic herb, lemon pepper, cajun bbq, honey garlic, a dry rub, a mild mustard bbq, a hot sauce? I can truly continue for a page or two on the flavors, and I wouldn't have named them all. So, have I helped you decide how you want your wings, or have I just brought up more questions! I know, right! Too many decisions! So I decided to go with a Smoked BBQ Wing with a Spicy Rub, and I am so glad I did. This is the first time I have smoked wings, and they were fantastic! They take about 2 hours, and they are worth the wait!

 Smoked BBQ Wings 
(makes 1 dozen wings)
(printable recipe at end of page)


1 dozen raw Chicken Wings
3 tablespoons Chipotle Seasoning
1 1/2 teaspoons Garlic Salt
1 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Paprika
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Dark Brown Sugar


Mix all of the dry rub ingredients together in a bowl.
Roll each raw chicken wing in the rub, and place on a baking sheet. I rolled them sparingly, as I knew it would be a bit hot, and I didn't want to overdo it! It ended up being the right way to dry rub them, as they had the perfect amount of heat!
I used applewood chips for the smoke. This picture is about 1 hour into the process. They are coming along great, and this is a good time to check the internal temperature of the wings.
Another 40-60 minutes, and the wings are temping at 165 degrees, so they are done!
Enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce!

Thank you for joining me today! I hope you have the opportunity to try my Smoked BBQ Wings! My family and I loved them!

Cucumber Egg Salad Bites / #OurFamilyTable

I am an egg lover! What about you? I enjoy eggs pretty much anyway you can make them. From the pretty basic, over easy breakfast (and sometimes dinner) with ham and toast, to a fancy chocolate souffle. If eggs are on the menu, I'm there! Today I made Cucumber Egg Salad Bites. These little bites remind me of tea parties and fancy luncheons. They are dainty and quite refreshing, and would make a wonderful addition to your Easter or Mother's Day table!

Cucumber Egg Salad Bites
(recipe makes approx. 20 pieces)
(printable recipe at end of page)

6 Eggs
2-3 Cucumbers
1 small Onion
3-4 tablespoons Mayonnaise
Ground Pepper
Fresh Strawberries


Boil your eggs first. I boil them a certain way, and I very seldom ever have any trouble getting the shell off. This is how to make them look pretty. Place the eggs in a pot of cold water. Put the temperature on high so they will boil. Once boiling, set the timer for 15 minutes. Once the timer rings, take the eggs to the sink. Don't drain the hot water, but start adding cold water to the pot. Let water run over into the sink, until the water in the pot is ice cold.

 Remove boiled eggs from the pot. The shells should come off quickly now, and more importantly, with out looking cut up and ugly.

I sliced the egg down the center, then turned it and sliced it on the other side. Chop into pieces.

 Before placing the egg salad in the cucumber, cut a little bit of the flesh of the cucumber away from the sides. Only go about half way down. You want to leave a little bit on the bottom.

Chop the onions into small bite sized pieces. Add mayonnaise, a little at a time, mixing after each addition. You will know when you have enough. Sprinkle with ground pepper. Chop the strawberries. Don't cut them too tiny. They taste best in this dish when they are cut a little bigger. Use a small scoop to place egg salad into cucumber.  That's it!

 I hope you enjoyed this recipe for Cucumber Eggs Salad Bites. If you have any questions about anything, please leave a message below, in the comments, and I will answer you asap.

Naan Bread Grilled Veggie Pizza / #FarmersMarketWeek

We love homemade pizzas at out house! We love adding our favorite toppings and our favorite cheese, and popping them on the grill or in the oven, for a quick and easy snack or meal! Over time we have experimented with various types of crust, and we have several that we like. We have tried homemade dough, dough from the grocery, and frozen dough. We have used tortillas as the crust, along with purchased crust, but these Mini Naan Breads are a family favorite. We all like them!
This recipe is super simple and quick. I used purchased Naan Bread and purchased Pizza Sauce, so this may be more of a "how to put together a pizza", than a recipe. I added tasty items from the Farmers Market, like onions, roma tomatoes, and corn.  No matter how you look at it, you are going to love these pizzas. For a quick meal or snack, they can't be beat!


Naan Bread Grilled Veggie Pizza
(printable recipe at end of page)
(makes 2 pizzas)

Mini Naan Bread
Pizza Sauce
1 Roma Tomato
2 tablespoons of Corn 
2-3 tablespoons of Sweet Vidalia Onion
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Fresh Mozzarella Pearls


Spoon pizza sauce on to the Naan Bread. Chop up onion, slice tomato, and cut corn from the cob. 
Roast the corn on the grill, or in a frying pan, until it is brown and delicious looking.
Start building your pizza. Add more of what you love, and less, or none of what you don't!
Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella over the sauce and vegetables. Add the fresh mozzarella pearls to the top! They are the best!
Place your pizza on a baking sheet and pop it into the pre heated oven at 350 degrees. It should take approx. 7 minutes to bake, then switch to broil for 3 minutes.
If you are grilling the pizza~YUM! Use a temperature of medium, and watch the bottom of the Naan Bread so it doesn't burn. It will taste so good and take approx. 15-20 minutes.
This is definitely ready to eat!
Anyway you cook it, you are going to love Naan Bread Grilled Veggie Pizza!
