BBQ Chicken Chicago-Style Pizza Bagels

This recipe is simple when you buy rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and use bottled BBQ sauce, already shredded cheese and seasoned canned tomatoes.

Ingredients:

  • 4 whole-wheat bagels, cut in half
  • 2 cups shredded boneless chicken breast, skinless
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce (your favorite)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped red onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, lightly packed
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded part skim mozzarella
  • 1 cup canned Italian Style diced tomatoes

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a jelly-roll pan with foil if desired. Place bagel halves on the lined pan.
  2. In medium bowl combine the chicken, barbeque sauce, red onions, fresh cilantro, tossing to blend well.
  3. Top each bagel half with 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture, then sprinkle 3 tablespoons cheese over each half. Spoon 1/8 cup of the diced canned tomatoes on top of each bagel half.
  4. Bake in center of oven for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and the bagel is nice and hot. Cut each bagel half in half or serve as is!

Yield:
Makes 8 servings (a half bagel)
