Chicken Fajita Pizza

Do you ever have chicken left over and wonder what in the world am I going to make this time??

We have enjoyed this recipe for several years. It's always been a winner in our house, and a great way to use up leftover cooked chicken.

Chicken Fajita Pizza

2 whole chicken breasts, skinned, boned, cut into 2 x 1/2" strips (or 2 cups leftover chicken, cut up)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup thinly sliced onions
1 cup green or red bell pepper strips
1 (10 oz) can Pillsbury Refrigerated All Ready Pizza Crust
1/2 cup prepared mild salsa
8 oz (2 cups) shredded mozzarella cheese

In large skillet over medium high heat, stir fry chicken in oil for about 5 minutes. Stir in chili powder, salt and garlic powder. Add onions and peppers; stir fry until veggies are tender crisp.

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Grease 13 x 9 inch pan. Unroll pizza dough and place in greased pan; starting at center press out with hands. Bake at 425 for 6 minutes or until very light golden. Remove from oven and spoon chicken mixture over partially baked crust. Spoon salsa over chicken; sprinkle with cheese. Bake an additional 14 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

6 to 8 servings.

I've got a whole bird ready to cook today. This sounds great. I've all the ingredients but the store bought crust, but I'm pretty sure I an whip up one from scratch. Thanks for sharing!
