1 pound boned, skinned chicken breasts
salt and pepper
1/3 cup prepared spaghetti sauce
4 slices bacon, cut into 1 - inch pieces
2 baked pizza crusts (7 to 8 inches)
1/4 cup cream cheese (2 oz.)
1/3 cup canned diced green chilies
1/2 cup shredded jack cheese
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon hot chili flakes
Rinse chicken and pat dry. Place in a 8 - inch baking pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in a 350 F oven until no longer pink at the center of the thickest part (cut to test), about 20 minutes. Let stand until cool enough to handle, then tear into bite-size chunks. In a small bowl, mix with spaghetti sauce.
Meanwhile, in a 10 to 12 inch frying pan over high heat, stir bacon until browned and crisp, about 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towels to drain.
Place pizza crusts on a 12 by 15 inch baking sheet. Spread each with about 2 tablespoons cream cheese. Spoon chicken in sauce evenly over both crusts; top with bacon, green chilies, jack cheese and hot chili flakes.
Bake pizzas in a 400 F oven until cheese is browned and bubbling, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a board and cut into wedges.
Yield: Makes two 8 - inch pizzas; 2 to 3 servings
NOTES: You can make pizza dough from scratch, but you will need to pre-bake the pizza crusts. An easy shortcut is to purchase pre-baked pizza crusts.
Spaghetti sauce can be substitute for 1/3 cup barbecue sauce for a GREAT!!! BARBECUED CHICKEN PIZZA!!!
