BBQ Chicken French Bread Pizza
I’m all about quick easy foods,
but I really don’t prefer prepared foods and try to avoid them all together.
I always have cooked chicken in the fridge.
It’s my go to item to have on hand as there are endless recipes that can be whipped up in minutes if the chicken is already cooked.
If you want to make this and don’t have chicken cooked and don’t feel like cooking it yourself, pick up a rotisserie chicken when you grab a couple of loaves of french bread to make this,
You’ll be so surprised how you can have food ready for a crowd super quick with just a few items.
I think French Bread Pizza is a great standby by item, you know those days….the kids decide last minute to bring 3 or 4 friends over or it ends up being a last minute guy night at your house because there is a BIG fight on, or maybe it’s a Football game and the neighbors cable is out. Yes all these things happen regularly around here and to SAVE the day
I fly in with my cape on, I try to think ahead and have these items on hand for the weekend or I quickly run to the store, luckily it’s not far at all. I grab the necessary items and in MINUTES the hungry masses will have hot pizza out of the oven and believe me it’s WAY better than any delivery in my area and WAY faster too. If by chance no on shows up and you have extra French Bread come the end of the weekend, you can always make Lemon French Toast, Gingerbread French toast, regular French Bread Pizza, Mexican French Bread Pizza, Stuffed Jalapeño Bread, really the list goes on and on
Yea…I love bread, can you tell.

I love pizza on a bread. That slightly charred slice of bread with BBQ chicken goodies on it looks SOOO GOOOOOD!

Pizza on French bread is one of my favorite lunch meals. I have never had one with BBQ chicken before. Thanks for the recipe.

What a great idea! I love the quick go to recipes where you can use up left overs, but some precooked chicken or even a rotisserie. This looks scrumptious. Sharing on my FB page tomorrow afternoon. Maybe having this for lunch too, gosh the photos are striking. Are you using a full frame camera?
I use a Cannon Rebel T1i with a 50mm 1.8 lens, so no not full frame 🙂 thanks so much for compliment, it really means so much to me.
