Chicken ‘Pizza’

by Meghann on January 28, 2011

Dad: “So, what do you want for dinner?”

Me: ” I don’t know.. baked ziti?”

Dad: “hmm… that’s one idea, but I did something really cool the other night where I pounded a chicken breast really thin, breaded it, lightly fried it, then topped it with marinara sauce and cheese. I call it a Chicken Pizza. “

Me: “Sounds like chicken parmesan.

Dad: “A little bit, but it’s more like Chicken Pizza. Let’s make that.”

Me: ” Alright, Dad, but I’m still pretty sure it’s chicken parmesan. At least, that’s how I make chicken parmesan…”


Aw, Dad. How you love your creative meals. I guess THAT’S where I get it from. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Only he didn’t have chicken, so he pounded pork, and he threw in an eggplant for his girls.


But, honestly, my Dad can never go wrong. Dinner was delicious.



I had 1/2 a pork chop ‘pizza’ and 1/2 an eggplant ‘pizza’


As well as a heaping serving of roasted vegetables and some pickled cucumber.


We’re leaving for Miami bright and early in the morning. If you’re heading to the Miami Expo tomorrow look for me (I’ll be in a Meals and Miles Shirt) and say HI! I promise I won’t bite…hard.

Chicken pizza – that’d be a great way to get kiddos into eating chicken parm ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and especially the eggplant version!

Haha this is totally something my dad would do. When we were kids he made breaded chicken cutlet’s and called them “Dad’s Rad Chicken.” Glad you had a great meal, enjoy Miami!

Good luck! I think I’d be scared to let my dad cook for me, his idea of a meal is a tv dinner or about a billion wings.

22 Sherry S. January 29, 2011 at 10:47 am

Good luck Andersons on The Miami Half Marathon. I’ll be thinking about yo tomorrow.

23 Becky J. January 29, 2011 at 11:03 am

The first meal I ever made for my husband was chicken parmesan, and he called (ans still calls) it “Pizza Chicken.” Too funny!

Your dad is too funny. Sounds just like a conversation I would have with my sister. She convinces herself she creates these dishes when really they’ve been alive for so long…
Have an awesome time in Miami!

If it was hard to get a child to eat their dinner (but what kid wouldn’t want to eat chicken parm?!), maybe calling it ‘chicken pizza’ would convince them to eat it! No matter what you call it, I’m a fan.
