BBQ Chicken Pizza

This is probably one of my all-time favorite Weight Watcher recipes. We do this one quite often, and it's easy too! Bonus! Pair this with a nice green salad an voila, dinners done.

3 (4-oz) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

2/3 c. spicy BBQ sauce, divided

1 (16-oz) Italian-cheese flavored pizza crust

1/3 c. slivered red onion

2 T. chopped fresh cilantro

1 c. (4 oz.) pre-shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

(we also like to add sliced bell peppers to our pizza)

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

2. Place chicken on an ungreased baking sheet; spoon 1/3 c. BBQ sauce over chicken. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes or until chicken is done. Cool; chop and set aside.

3. Spread remaining BBQ sauce on pizza crust, leaving a 1" border. Top crust evenly with chicken and remaining ingredients.

4. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until cheese melts. Cut into 8 slices. (serving size 1 slice)

There is a slight trick to make this easier...we cook chicken breasts and whole wheat pasta ahead of time so we can easily grab something healthy rather than something easy that may not be as good for us. So, for this recipe we can just grab a couple chicken breasts, chop 'em up and throw the pizza together...anything to make things easier is alright in my book. :)
