The Best Chicken Roll Recipe

I know a lot of you were surprised to see how well Teddy eats so I will show you how economical it can actually be. 

I roasted the $9.00 chicken I bought at the Amish market.  Teddy gets the healthy low fat breast meat as treats which lasts for 2 weeks.  I freeze half of it to take out for the second week.  Then I use all the rest of the meat to make another dish.  I boil the carcass with onions, carrots, celery and herbs to make stock.  I get about 3 quarts of stock from it.  So a $9.00 chicken goes a long way. This is what I made with the extra chicken meat yesterday.

This is a variation of ones I have shown before. I used my no knead pizza dough for the base.  If you want the recipe, click here:  http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2012/07/no-knead-pizza-recipe.html   This is seriously good pizza dough.  you can make it and keep it in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Roll out some of the dough and spread it with garlic butter.

Spread on some pesto.  Sprinkle the diced chicken over the pesto. Sprinkle on some crumbled bacon and some shredded cheddar cheese.


Roll the dough into a log and slice pieces about an inch wide and place them in muffin tins sprayed with cooking spray.  When I showed this before I baked these on cookie sheets. They work much better in muffin tins.  Sprinkle a bit of Provolone cheese on the top.  Bake at 400 degrees until golden.  About 25 minutes.  Kids love these. 

So do Blog Techs!  This made 2 dozen and I only used 2/3 of my pizza dough.  These all go to the neighbors today.
