Slow Cooking Supper: Pulled Chicken & Pepper Pizza

Print Friendly and PDF


Summer is coming…and with it comes the barbeque!  I’m so excited for summer this year and it’s not just because of our super-duper fancy grill.  I feel like this summer is chock full of good things:  new college graduates, new babies, new marriages, new trips, and new opportunities!  In fact, when I lay out my calendar for the summer, there are very few weekends that John and I can actually count ourselves in NYC.
Whenever I get overwhelmed with visiting and things, we turn to quick meals.  Most of them are on this blog already and are our family favorites.  But every now and again, we get introduced to something that is absolutely amazing and blows anything I can make out of the water. Enter…Slather it On!  This is one of the many vendors we met at the Charleston Food + Wine Festival.  But it was the ONLY vendor that John stood in line for to eat their meatballs again and again.  I wish I was kidding.

The sauce is a sweet and spicy blend of honey, pineapples, tomatoes, crushed red peppers and some delicious gourmet spices and their slogan “The Cure for Boring Food” really does speak the truth.  You can find some at your local market here!  John couldn’t stop talking about it and it’s hard to tell who was more excited when we got to play with the sauce ourselves:  him, to eat it, or me, who didn’t have to hear about it anymore!  They have a ton of recipes on their own website and I was inspired by their creativity!   I immediately dove in with this pizza – a new and exciting twist to our Friday night tradition! 

Giveaway Details:  Giveaway will run from Monday, April 29, 2013 to Sunday, May 5, 2013 at 11:59 P.M.  See below recipe for additional details. 
Slather It On has been kind enough to offer 1 reader a 3-sauce gift pack.  You get 2 original and 1 spicy (John’s choice, of course)!  All you have to do is follow the directions below!
1.       Enter by commenting below what boring food you would cure with the Slatherin’ Sauces!
2.       If you “like” Slatherin’ Sauces on Facebook or The Growing Foodie on Facebook, leave a comment.  This would be an additional entry for each like.
Pulled Chicken & Pepper Pizza
Serves:  4 (1 pizza)
1 chicken breast
1 1/2 cups Slatherin' Sauce
3 tablespoons water
1 pizza dough 
1/4 cup cilantro, thinly sliced
1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2 peppers, sliced thinly

Place chicken in the crockpot.  Combine 1 cup sauce + water and pour over the chicken.  Set on low and cook 4-6 hours until cooked through.  Shred the chicken with two forks and stir back into the sauce.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  Meanwhile, roll out the pizza dough onto a pizza pan.  Top with remaining Slatherin' Sauce and cilantro slices.  Top with shredded chicken, cheeses, and peppers. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the dough is cooked and the cheese is melted.  Serve immediately.

Giveaway Details (continued):
You must be a United States resident to win.  I will notify the winner within 24 hours of the contest ending.  If they do not provide their address within 48 hours, I will notify a new winner and the same rules will apply.  And that’s it!  Nice and easy, same as this pizza!


Until the next time my oven is on...
