Cost: $5.40 per recipe / $1.35 per serving
- ½ cup barbecue sauce (divided) plus 1-2 tablespoons
- ½ lb chicken thighs or breasts
- ¼ of a large red onion thinly sliced
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 4 naans
- 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
- 1 avocado thinly sliced
Chicken. Preheat oven to 425° F and line a baking sheet with foil. Pat chicken dry with a paper towel, then brush it with ¼ cup of the barbecue sauce. Bake chicken for 25 minutes or until the internal temperature reads 165° F. Shred the chicken and mix with 1-2 additional tablespoons of barbecue sauce.
Red onions. Thinly slice the red onion, then soak the slices in a bowl of ice water for 15 minutes. Drain the onions and heat olive oil to medium heat in a frying pan. Sauté the onions for 7-9 minutes or until soft.
Naan. Reduce the oven temperature to 400° F. Bake naan without toppings for 5 minutes, then remove from oven.
Pizza. Brush the naan with the remaining ¼ cup of barbecue sauce. Then layer on cheese, chicken, and red onions. Bake for 5 to 7 additional minutes or until the cheese is melted. While the pizza is baking, thinly slice the avocado. Remove pizza from the oven, top with avocado slices, and serve immediately.
- Try using leftover or rotisserie chicken to save time. Just shred it and mix it with barbecue sauce.
