A post a day (sorta) Installment 1

I am going to *TRY* to do 1 post per week day, notice I said try, for the month of March. Here is installment # 1.

  • This is my recipe for Stromboli. It is SUPER easy and SUPER good. You can also use other pizza fillings in it as well. Kevin likes deli pepperoni, mushrooms and Italian sausage.

STROMBOLI

  • 1lb of Publix Pizza Dough (in the bakery/deli section)
  • 1 pound of chicken
  • 2 cups of shredded cheese (Mozzarella works best)
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 bell pepper diced
  • Italian seasoning
  • 1 jar of marinara sauce (If we don’t make our own, we use Bertolli Marinara, it is a GREAT base sauce)
  • Preheat oven to 425.
  • Cube chicken and saute it in a little bit of olive oil and about ¼ Tsp of Italian Seasoning. When the chicken is almost done, add the onions and bell peppers and cook until the onions are beginning to go clear. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  • Follow the directions on the bag of Pizza dough as far as letting is sit and rise and come to room temperature. (We usually let ours sit on the counter for at least an hour before using it). Cut dough in half and Roll/Press dough out until it forms a oblong type shape.
  • Once the Chicken mixture is no longer steaming hot (a little warm is OK, you just don’t want it to melt the cheese…Yet) Mix ¾ of the cheese with the chicken mixture that you have created.
  • A little above center of the dough, spoon in some sauce (a good 2-3 tablespoons), spread it down the center of the dough, leaving about 1.5 inches of un-sauced dough on the edges. It should cover make a stripe about 2 inches wide. Take ½ of your chicken mixture and put it on top of the sauce, try to evenly distribute the chicken so that it will cook evenly. Fold the top edge of the dough over the top of the mixture, fold the sides in and then roll it up. Make sure that there isn’t any chicken exposed, it was cause a HUGE mess. When you put it on the pan try to put it seam side down, to help hold stuff in. Do the same thing with the other one. Place them on a cookie sheet with sides and bake for 25-35 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Serve with the remaining shredded cheese and sauce and enjoy.

Sounds good :) I might try it because I bet Wes would like it. Got any good recipes for Alfredo sauce?

Candi,
I do have a pretty decent recipe for Alfredo sauce. The secret is the cheese in it. I will see if I can find the recipe and post it as well.

Yum, that sounds good!

Hey I found this article online and thought of you, are you a limoncello fan? I LOVE it. Anyway, I didn't realize you could make it yourself. If you're interested, here's the article...
