Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

  • Try using leftover or rotisserie chicken to save time. Just shred it and mix it with barbecue sauce.
