Buffalo Chicken Pizza


You win some, you lose some. Tonight's dessert was a big winner, but this dinner - not so much. There was nothing wrong with it, mind you, I actually thought it was quite good. But it was during this meal we discovered that Joe does not like blue cheese, and unfortunately this pizza had lots of blue cheese on it. So Joe had leftovers while I ate the pizza. I may try it again and leave out the blue cheese, but I personally thought the blue cheese was what made it unique. If you like your food spicy and like blue cheese, give this a try! The recipe is from Rachel Ray.

Wingless Buffalo Chicken Pizza

3/4 pound chicken breast cutlets*
Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
2 teaspoons grill seasoning, (recommended: McCormick Montreal Seasoning) eyeball it*
1 pizza dough, store bought or from your favorite pizzeria Cornmeal or flour, to handle dough
2 tablespoons butter (I omitted this)
1 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, eyeball it
2 to 3 tablespoons hot sauce, medium to spicy heat
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, a few generous handfuls
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
3 scallions, thinly sliced (I omitted this)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Preheat grill pan to high.
Place chicken on a plate and drizzle extra-virgin olive oil over the chicken then season with grill seasoning. When grill is hot, add chicken and cook about 3 minutes on each side. Stretch dough to form pizza using cornmeal or flour to help you handle it. If you let it rest and warm up a few minutes it will handle even easier. Set pizza on pizza pan to the side and clean board.
In a medium skillet over medium heat, melt butter and stir in Worcestershire, hot sauce, and tomato sauce.
Remove the chicken from grill and thinly slice it. Add chicken to sauce and coat. Cover the pizza dough with the saucy Buffalo chicken, cheeses, and scallions. Bake 18 minutes or until crisp.

*I cheated and used the pre-cooked Perdue chicken pieces. I didn't grill, season or even heat up the chicken on the stove, I simply stirred it right into the sauce. The chicken heated through in the oven and I thought it worked great.

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO
