This recipe is surprisingly yummy!
Last night I needed something quick, but it had to be yummy, and healthy. I tried this, and the kids loved it.
Chicken Ranch Pizza Roll Up
(I changed the name for my kids)
8 slices bacon
1 lb ground chicken
1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes with green chiles, drained
- I used marinara sauce instead.
2 tsp dry ranch dressing mix (from 1-oz package)
1 can Pillsbury® refrigerated classic pizza crust
- next time I will use thin crust, or roll crust out more.
2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend (8 oz)
1 tbsp olive oil
Heat oven to 375°F. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon; leave any drippings in skillet.
Add chicken to drippings; cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until no longer pink. Stir in tomatoes. Crumble bacon and add to skillet. Drain extra liquid if necessary; stir in dressing mix.
Unroll dough on nonstick cookie sheet; sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese. Spread chicken mixture over cheese. Top with remaining 1 cup cheese. Starting on 1 long side, roll up; turn seam side down. Brush with olive oil.
Bake 23 to 27 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cover with foil to prevent over browning if necessary. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut on diagonal to serve.
See the original recipe here.
Next time, I will use more marinara sauce, as well as serve a side of sauce for dipping.
Add a side of applesauce, cut up fruit, or a vegetable.
Weeknight dinner is done!
What other ingredients do you think would work well in this recipe? Maybe alfredo instead of marinara? Let me know if you try it. I look forward to your comments.
