In her own words …
I get inspiration for my meals from the internet, food channels on tv and friends. A lot of times, after watching a TV show I immediately want to try the recipe but rarely have all the ingredients in the kitchen so I improvise. This dish is from a show I saw on the Food Network, they called it “Pizzafied chicken!” If you Google it you’ll find many variations, this is mine, based on what I remember with some additions of my own. It is very simple to make.
The basic idea as the name suggests is to use the chicken breast as a pizza base instead of bread.
You will need:
3 chicken breasts
2 tablespoons olive oil
For the marinade:
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon salt
½ bulb of crushed garlic
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
For the topping:
10 cherry tomatoes
½ cup of grated mozzarella cheese
3 tablespoons pasta sauce (can be substituted with pureed tomatoes)
Dried oregano (optional)
I recently learned that there is ‘light soy sauce’ and ‘dark soy sauce’ — the light is for white meat, and the dark is for red meat. Some knowledge picked up from a cooking show 🙂
Turn the chicken only once, and only after the bottom is done.
Once the chicken is cooked on the other side you may begin to add the toppings.
If you have a cover for your pan, use it. My wok doesn’t have one so I improvised with some foil. You just want to cover it for a couple of minutes so the cheese can melt
It could use some sauce/soup!
Yeah! The sauce thing again. My biggest challenge!
Thank you Shiro!
I had the privilege of tasting as well, it was so good, the flavours were just right, and the chicken was juicy! (^_^)
By the way, she mentioned that you could substitute the ham for mushrooms, I think that would do very nicely too! If you try it let us know how it goes!
