Weeknight Rightovers: Featuring Your Electric Grill & Griddle

If you made too much grilled chicken, this is the article for you. Jen, @midwestlifeandstyle, shares a rightovers idea for pizza that transforms grilled chicken leftovers into a fresh, picture-worthy pizza.


I love having a consistent schedule and routine. But as soon as summer ends and the new school year starts, our calendar becomes crammed full of activities.

Like so many families, our evenings can get a little chaotic, especially at dinnertime! To help manage the craziness, I try to plan leftover meals at least once or twice a week. It’s a huge timesaver on those extra-busy nights or when I don’t feel like cooking something new.

Having tools in my kitchen like Pampered Chef’s Deluxe Electric Grill & Griddle helps me cut down on food waste and quickly turn last night’s grilled chicken into meals my whole family loves like Barbecue Chicken Pizza.

  1. In a small mixing bowl, add the chicken, half of the barbecue sauce, and the minced garlic. Stir well to coat.
  2. Preheat the Deluxe Electric Grill & Griddle, with the grill plates, on GRILL for 3 minutes.
  3. While the grill is preheating, prepare the Pizza Crust Mix with the water and olive oil in a medium mixing bowl.
  4. Sprinkle a pastry mat with cornmeal. Turn out the dough and use a Baker’s Roller to roll it out.
  5. When the grill has preheated, carefully lift the dough from the mat and place it on the bottom plate of the grill. Cook in the Closed position for 2–3 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Select CUSTOM. Press TOP/BTM. Set the top to 480°F (250°C) and the bottom to 250°F (120°C).
  7. When the grill has preheated, spread the remaining barbecue sauce evenly over the crust. Top with the chicken mixture, onions, and cheese.
  8. Cook in the Top Melt position for 7–10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  9. Garnish with fresh cilantro and enjoy!
