Garlic Chicken French Bread Pizza
Last weekend Tim and I had a pizza-fest. Thats right, everything we ate was in the form of pizza!
Garlic Chicken French Bread Pizza was easy, fast and flavorful. No crust making required. All you needed was to slice bread, layer ingredients and bake!
I did cook the chicken, but if you have any leftover chicken you could use it. Or buy a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store and use what you need for this recipe, plus have left over for another recipe.
The roasted garlic is what really makes this pizza shine and its easy to do……heres how:
Roasting the garlic gives it a nutty, sweet, almost buttery flavor that is perfect for any garlic dish. Try it you’ll like it……..
The roasted garlic along with the other ingredients are layered on the french bread and baked into toasty, garlicky, cheesy goodness.
Garlic Chicken French Bread Pizza makes an easy to pull together lunch or dinner, and you could even slice it up as an appetizer or snack.
