Chicken and Artichoke French Bread Pizza
Time: 30 minutes
Yield: about 12 thick slices
Recipe from MyHandsomeHusband
1 loaf french bread
1/2 C mayonnaise (I use Best Foods Light)
2 t  Johnny’s Garlic Seasoning
2 1/2  C Mozzarella cheese
1/2  C Parmesan cheese

1 C cooked chicken, chopped

1/2  C  spinach, finely chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1/4 C red onion, chopped
1 C marinated artichoke hearts, chopped
2 T juice from the marinated artichoke jar
1. In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise and Johnny’s Garlic Spread. These two make a very lovely pair.
2. Slice that loaf of french bread open. Slather the mayo/johnny mixture all over the insides. Place the bread on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Sprinkle about 1/4 C mozzarella cheese on each piece.
3. Get all of your toppings chopped up and ready to go! I have been purchasing these handy Grilled Chicken Strips at Costco lately. Wow. What a time saver! They are very moist and have a wonderful flavor.
Artichoke Hearts can also be found at Costco. They come in a big jar, but don’t you worry. They last quite a long time in the fridge. We always seem to work our way through it before the expiration date. 
4. Evenly distribute the chopped chicken, spinach, tomato, red onion and artichoke hearts over each bread half. 
5. Sprinkle with the remaining cheeses.
6. Take a spoon and dish it into the artichoke jar. Drizzle it all over the top of each pizza. Extra yum!
7. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese is all bubbly and wonderful and heavenly and delicious. 

8. Remove from the oven and let the loaves sit for about 5 minutes. Cut and enjoy!

    Yum! I'd have to make this for my lunch, they don't like tomatoes, spinach and would probably freak about the artichokes too (I can usually hide those in recipes). =)

    We had this for dinner last night and it was a HUGE success. Just left off the spinach for the picky eaters. Oh, it was so good, it is making my mouth water just thinking about it. Too bad there weren't any leftovers. When my daughter was making it another daughter walked in and said, “What's for dinner?” Her sister replied, “It's a recipe from Jamie Cooks it up, so it'll be DELICIOUS!” Thanks!!

    Oh my! This looks amazing. If the roads weren't all covered with ice I'd be running out to get artichoke hearts and french bread right now.

    BTW…to be honest, I clicked over here from Our Best Bites to check out the cookbook giveaway and totally got sidetracked by this recipe. LOL

    Love discovering new cooking blogs and happy I happened upon yours. 🙂

      I think that having the same thing for barfkaest and lunch all week (if you don’t mind it) makes it really easy. For dinners, we have about 10 things we rotate through. Sometimes, we eat the same thing 2x in a week- and it’s really not a big deal. We ALWAYS have pizza Friday night (healthy- made at home), and have for years. I like that because I don’t have to think about it. On nights when I teach classes late, Greg takes care of dinner, which is almost always grilled fish, sweet potatoes and roasted veggies. Our other standards are taco salads (and we switch up the proteins from anything to turkey, tempeh, black beans, tofu, etc), pasta with a ton of veggies and marinara, wild salmon and beef/mushroom burgers. I think that getting over the pressure of having to create different meals all the time and maybe just striving for ONE more elaborate meal once a week makes it easier. It’s really OKAY to eat the same thing twice in a week. And why not if it tastes good?

    Made this tonight for our neighbors’ housewarming party, and it was met with rave reviews! I love it when a recipe is both easy AND delicious. Thanks for sharing it.
