Saucy Thai Chicken Pizzas

Contributor Gigi Miller, from Stoughton, Wisconsin, provided a fabulous recipe for sweet and saucy chicken thighs that she serves with rice. We took it a step further, and used the chicken and sauce to make this restaurant-inspired Thai pizza. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

    I love this recipe as is, but the only thing I do differently is, after it's cooked, I pile on some shredded fresh carrots and a handful of fresh cole slaw mix on top. Yummy!

    This pizza is delicious! The peanut sauce and cilantro along with the crunch of the coleslaw mix and peanuts made it very tasty. I used chicken breasts instead of thighs, and I didn't have salted peanuts, so I used honey roasted peanuts. I will definitely make it again!

    This was great! I prepared a half-recipe for the two of us. We had the chicken with rice first. A few days later I made the pizzas using two small pizza shells. That worked especially well for us because one of us doesn't eat nuts and the other dislikes cilantro. My husband loved both meals. Two keepers in one recipe -- a win-win situation.Update: I now make the pizzas with 8" flour tortillas. I began with the pre-baked pizza crusts specified in the recipe, then tried both pitas and naan, but settled on the tortillas as being the least-filling option. I plan to try using a large, rectangular pre-baked crust as the base for a party-sized appetizer soon.
