1 cup shredded cooked chicken breast (about 5 ounces)
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 teaspoons cornmeal
1 (13.8-ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 425°.
Pat artichokes dry with paper towels. Combine artichokes, salt, pepper, and garlic in a large bowl. Add spinach, cheese, and chicken; toss gently to combine.
Brush oil over a baking sheet; sprinkle with cornmeal. Unroll dough onto prepared baking sheet; cut into 6 equal portions. Cover and let rest 5 minutes. Pat each portion into a 6 x 5-inch rectangle. Spoon 2/3 cup spinach mixture into center of each dough portion. Fold one corner of each dough portion over spinach mixture to form a triangle. Press edges together with fingers to seal. Bake at 425° for 12 minutes or until golden.
My family loves these. I now almost always make a double batch to make sure we have leftovers. Using a rotisserie chicken definitely speeds up the process. I've also just used leftover baked or sauteed chicken (just so it doesn't have too much conflicting flavors)
I don't often make the marinara sauce - I just use whatever sauce we have on hand. My picky eaters don't seem to even notice the spinach and artichokes :)
A tiny bit of tweaking makes this a great recipe - like a previous reviewer, I also use rotisserie chicken and also a reduced-fat Italian cheese blend, which is much more flavorful than provolone and eliminates a bit of fat. I make six at a time and wrap the leftover ones individually in foil - when we need a quick meal, I just open up the foil and put in the oven at 350 degrees for about fifteen minutes, flipping them half way through so both sides get a little crispy. Throw together a salad and dinner is done. Delicious!
I really enjoyed this recipe. I made some slight adjustments after reading the other reviews. .. I used a rotisserie chicken , doubled the garlic, and instead of provolone I used an Italian cheese blend (provolone, mozzarella, romano, asiago and parmesan) .
We had a great pasta dipping sauce. I will definitely make this again.
So I had to change a few things, just because of the past reviews on here. I also added chicken sausage in addition to one chicken breast, also I used a multi-grain pizza dough (available at Publix) to add some extra nutritional value (or so I think extra..). Anyways, the whole thing came together great, was very flavorful and filling with a small side salad in addition. A definite MUST TRY recipe!
