Barbecue Chicken Pita Pizzas
2 boneless chicken breasts
1 green bell pepper, cut julienne
½ cup BBQ sauce
4 pita breads
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 oz can chopped green chilies
1 cup shredded cheddar
4 oz can chopped mushrooms
⅓ cup real bacon bits
1 onion, halved and sliced thinly
Preheat the grill to a moderate heat.
Rub the olive oil over the chicken.
Sear it for a couple of minutes on each side on the grill, and then rub ⅔ of the BBQ sauce over it.
Keep cooking the chicken until the juices run clear from the thickest part of it.
Cut it into pieces.
Spread the rest of the BBQ sauce over the pita breads, and then add the chicken, onion, bell pepper, bacon, mushrooms, chilies and cheddar.
Put the pizzas on an ungreased grill rack and cook for about 8 minutes over a low flame until the vegetables are still crisp but tender and the cheese has melted.
You can cut each pizza into 4 to make 16 appetizer-sized portions if you like, or leave them whole for entrees.
