Ingredients
  • 1 cup finely shredded cooked chicken breast
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Old El Paso Taco Seasoning divided
  • 12 ounces prepared pizza dough
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place chicken and 1 teaspoon Old El Paso Taco Seasoning into a medium mixing bowl, stir to combine. Press your pizza dough into a rectangle filling most of the space on your baking sheet. Top half of dough with cheese then evenly place shredded chicken mixture over cheese. Top with additional cheese and fold dough over filled dough, pressing edges firmly to seal. Doesn’t have to be perfect, just mostly sealed. Sprinkle with an additional 1/2 teaspoon taco seasoning and use a pizza cutter to cut 1 inch “breadstick” strips. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until cooked through. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before separating into breadsticks. Place sour cream and 1 teaspoon taco seasoning into a small bowl, stir to combine and use for dipping.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies

To make the best chocolate chip cookies, you want to start with the best ingredients. Make sure your eggs are fresh, you have pure vanilla extract and real butter. These are some of my must do’s when making my cookie recipes. Invest in a nice cookie sheet from your favorite kitchen store. I really enjoy the ones from Williams Sonoma or Sur La Table. It’s also helpful to have a great cookie scoop. I look for a medium sized one that gives me uniform cookies when placing onto my baking sheet.

These really are some of the best chocolate chip cookies. Love the texture with the cereal and buttery crisp edges. A family favorite for sure. I had all of my ingredients and I was ready to start my cookies!!

Be sure to store any leftovers in an airtight container, chilled in the refrigerator or at room temperature on the kitchen counter.
