– 10 oz. skinless and boneless chicken breast (cut into 1/2-inch cubes) – ▢1 tablespoon butter – ▢2 cloves garlic (minced) – ▢1/2 jalapeno (deseeded) – ▢Salt to taste – ▢1 12- inches store-bought pizza crust or three (3 7-inches mini pizza crusts) – ▢Olive oil for brushing – ▢1/4 onion (thinly sliced) – ▢1 cup mozzarella cheese – ▢Handful of coriander leaves/cilantro (chopped, save some for garnish)

Step 1

– In a bowl, marinade the chicken with the Marinade for at least an hour in the refrigerator.

Step 2

– Line a layer of aluminum foil in a baking pan for grilling. Spread the marinated chicken in a single layer on the pan, discard the remaining marinade. Grill the chicken at 450°F (232°C) for 6-7 minutes, turning at half time.

Step 3

– While the chicken is cooking, prepare the Tomato Sauce and Spice Mix in separate bowls. Remove the chicken from the pan when it is done and discard the juice.

Step 4

– Heat a small sauce pan and melt the butter. Sauté the garlic and jalapeno until aromatic. Pour in the Spice Mix and sauté until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes on medium heat. Remove the jalapeno and discard.

Step 5

– Add in the Tomato Sauce and stir well to mix. Sprinkle salt to taste and continue to simmer until the sauce thickens, another 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and add the chicken meat into the sauce and mix well.

Step 6

– Pre-heat the oven to 450°F (232°C). Place the pizza crust on a pizza pan and brush lightly with olive oil. Spread the sauce/gravy on the pizza crust. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheese. Arrange the chicken on the pizza. Top it with the sliced onions, chopped cilantro and the remaining cheese.

Step 7

– Reduce the temperature to 425°F (218°C). Bake the pizza for 8-10 minutes. Remove the pizza from the pan when it is done and garnish the remaining chopped cilantro.
