My morning consisted of dancing in my kitchen to Rihanna and Beyonce while making buffalo chicken garbage bread.
What did you do today?
I also cleaned out the sink in an effort to remain in good daughter graces. My birthday is coming up next week and we all know that I’m wishing and hoping for the typical 22-year-old gifts.
Dutch ovens, silplat mats, and of course anything from the Martha Stewart cooking line at Macy’s.
Anyway, lets be frank (no pun intended, I’m so clever, haha), buffalo chicken is one of the top three reasons I could never be vegetarian. Clearly bacon takes the number one spot, but buffalo chicken is a close second.
I have been thinking about this combination for a few weeks. Perhaps I should explain garbage bread? I didn’t realize everyone didn’t know what garbage bread is, maybe its just an upstate NY thing. Its basically a calzone except you wrap the pizza dough so its in layers.
Needless to say, this was quite delicious. Not necessarily ass friendly, but I’ll totally take the buffalo chicken any day over the gym ;)
Buffalo Chicken Garbage Bread
2 boneless chicken breasts
1 tsp. olive oil
1 pizza dough (I used store bought and let it sit out for about 20 minutes)
8 oz. of shredded mozzarella cheese (I used part skim)
3 oz. of shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup of Franks Wing Sauce
1/3 cup of ranch or blue cheese dressing
Cut chicken into cubes. Season with salt and pepper. Heat teaspoon of olive oil in skillet and add chicken when hot. Cook chicken completely and then add 1/4 cup of wing sauce. Stir to coat chicken and let simmer for a minute or two. Take chicken off heat and let cool.
Pre-heat oven to 425°F.**
On a well floured surface, spread pizza dough into a long rectangle shape.
Add ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing (depending on your preference!) and remaining 1/4 cup of wing sauce. Spread across the dough. Add chicken and then top with mozzarella and cheddar cheese. You can also add a bit more of the wing sauce on top of the cheese if you want it to be a little bit spicier.
Roll the dough like a pinwheel until you reach the end. Make sure to tuck the ends of the dough in so the middle doesn’t ‘ooze’ out when baking.
Spray baking sheet with light coat of non-stick cooking spray. Place garbage bread on the pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
Let sit for five minutes and cut into and enjoy!
**Some people have commented that they found this cooked too quickly and the inside is raw. All ovens vary and cook differently. I would highly recommend that the rack you use is in the middle of the oven as opposed to the bottom rack or really high up in the oven where it will brown more quickly. You could also lower the temperature to 400 degrees, but it may take a little longer to cook!
I’m so thankful tomorrow is Thursday and the end of my school week. Although I’m working all weekend, I only have two days of class next week.
It’s officially only 31 days until I’m done with school forever and I could not be more excited! I know I have to start real life I guess, but that can’t be worse than working AND being in school.
Hope you all have a great week <3
