Chicken and Aspraragus Grilled Pizza

Welcome to #BBQWeek! Nice weather has finally arrived in New England, and it's been so great to be able to get outside and grill.  I've been making grilled pizza for a few years now, and there are so many ways that can switch it up! I buy premade dough from the local place or grocery store, but you definitely can make your own if you like.  The key is to oil the grill grates well, and to have all of your toppings ready to go.

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BBQWeek. I received product samples from sponsors to use in creating #BBQWeek recipes. However, all opinions are mine alone.

For today's version, I had some great sponsor products to work with. I cut boneless, skinless chicken breast into strips and then dusted them with Adam's Burgers Fries & More seasoning.  I rubbed the grates down with olive oil, and then heated it to high on one side. I added the chicken and turned it down to medium.

I cooked the chicken until it was no longer pink and the juices ran clear.   While it was cooking, I tossed the beautiful Michigan Asparaus spears with a little olive oil and heated the other side of the grill to medium high.  I grilled them until they were soft and the tips were a little bit crunchy, just how I like them!  Once both were done, I cut them into bite sized pieces and set them aside.

I cranked up the heat on both sides of the grill to high, cleaned it with a grill brush, and then oiled the grates.  My dough was warmed up and very pliable. Rather than dusting my hands with flour to keep it from sticking, I used a teaspoon of olive oil.  I divided the dough into 2 parts, and stretched each into a freeform shape, carefully laying each piece down on the grill. I turned the heat down to medium, and grilled the first side, rotating it once, until it was golden brown. The time will really depend on how thin you've stretched the dough.

Once the first side is cooked, flip it over and apply your toppings.  I used Not Ketchup's Tangerine Hatch Chile as the sauce base, sprinkled it with some shredded mozzarella, then topped it with the grilled chicken and asparagus.  Close the lid and cook until the bottom crust is browned and crispy, and the cheese is melted.  Again, this will vary based on how thick your dough was and how high you've piled the toppings. Move to a cutting board, slice and enjoy!

I loved how all of the flavors worked together. Each component was great on it's own, but together, wow!  Beautiful crispy dough that was chewy on the inside, a sweet and spicy citrus sauce, along with the freshness of the asparagus and perfectly seasoned chicken.  It's one of my favorite meals to come off my grill, and I definitely will be making it again!

Thank you so much to Ellen from Family Around the Table for hosting #BBQWeek and to all the other #FestiveFoodies for sharing their recipes.  I'm so excited to see what everyone else is making.  Huge thanks also to our sponsors, Not Ketchup, Michigan Asparagus and Adams Extracts!

Chicken and Asparagus Grilled Pizza

Chicken and Asparagus Grilled Pizza


  • 1lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut in strips.
  • 2 to 3t Adams Burgers Fries & More Seasoning
  • Large bunch Michigan asparagus
  • Olive oil
  • 1/4 to 1/2c Not Ketchup Tangerine Hatch Chile sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 16oz pizza dough, store bought or make your own


  1. Heat grill to high and make sure that it is very, very clean. Lightly oil grates. Season chicken with Adam's Burgers Fries & More to taste. Place it on the grill and reduce heat to medium. Cook until no longer pink and juices run clear, approximately 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. While the chicken is cooking, toss the Michigan asparagus with oil, and place it on the grill. Turn and cook until the spears are soft, and the tips are a little bit crunchy. Remove chicken and asparagus when done and cut them into bite sized pieces, set aside.
  3. Heat the grill to high, and clean it to prevent the dough from sticking, and oil the grates again. Rub a drizzle of olive oil onto your hands to make the dough easier to work with. Divide the dough in half and stretch it gently into whatever shape you like. Lightly place it on the grill. Reduce heat to medium. Cook until golden brown on one side, rotating it as necessary.
  4. Flip the dough over, top with Not Ketchup Tangerine Hatch Chile sauce, cheese, chicken and aparagus. Close the lid and cook until the bottom of the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted on top. Remove to cutting board, slice and enjoy!

So many ways you can use the Not Ketchup, I'm excited to try more!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Lemon Pizzelles

  One of the first cookies I can remember eating is a pizzelle, and I'm still a huge fan today.  Even though you need a special iron to make them, the rest of it is really so simple. This time around I took the basic pizzelle recipe and instead of vanilla or anise, I used Adams lemon extract. I also used some of their yellow food coloring to distinguish them from my regular pizzelle.
