French Bread Pizza and some sad news

Okay...sad news first. My oven is having a problem!! The range is LESS than 3 years old and I 'think' the baking element has gone out. I am going to be taking the thing apart in a minute to see. I am hoping it is the baking element! I have found a place to order the part, if that is the problem. The oven will still broil, just not bake:( Unfortunately, I had 5 loaves(4 mini and one regular size) of ooey, gooey cinnamon bread half-baked when I realized that the oven had quit baking. I was SO sad!! When I get the oven fixed, I will be baking that bread again so that I can share it here! Another sad thing, I got to smell that wonderful half-baked cinnamon bread all night:(

Anyway, since the oven was not baking, I had to broil my BBQ Chicken French Bread Pizza. I got a coupon from my local Basha's grocery store for a free loaf of French Bread if I spent $10. Honestly, I don't know if I EVER go to the grocery store and spend less than $10. My family LOVES BBQ Chicken Pizza, so I decided to make it on French Bread. Quick and easy!!

Notice all of the silk on the corn...oops! I thought my little helpers and I did a better job than that:)

Really, this is just like the BBQ Chicken Pizza that I make...only on French Bread instead of regular pizza crust. First, took a zip-Lock bag out of my freezer with two chicken breasts in it. I let it thaw and then poured some Italian Dressing into the bag and let it marinate overnight(MMM...I LOVE to marinade chicken in Italian Dressing and eat it right off the grill). The next day, I grilled it, shred it and mixed it with BBQ sauce. Then it was ready for the pizza. Of course you don't need to marinade it or grill it, just cook up some chicken any way you like, shred it and mix it with BBQ sauce.

I cut the bottom 1/2-1 inch off of the French Bread and then the top 1/2-1 inch off the top to make two pizzas. I let the kids fight over the middle yummy, soft bread to snack on while they were waiting.

Place the French Bread on a baking sheet. We like to smear ours with Alfredo sauce(if you haven't tried BBQ chicken pizza with Alfredo should), then add the BBQ and top with lots of mozzarella cheese or Italian blend cheese. Normally I would bake mine at 400 degrees until hot and bubbly, but this time....I had to broil it. When it is hot and bubbly, slice and ENJOY.
For the Corn: My little helpers shucked(is that a word) the corn husks into the compost bin and scrubbed the corn. We brushed softened butter on the corn. Sprinkled on some salt and fresh ground pepper. Wrapped the corn in foil and grilled over medium heat for 25-30 minutes...rotating approx. every 5 minutes. It was FABULOUS!!
Pin It!
