Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry

5-6 boneless chicken breasts
1 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp. grated ginger
2 tsp olive oil
1 cup water

Mix all ingredients and stir well. Marinate chicken with half the mixture overnight. Refrigerate other half of mixture to use for stir fry. Bake chicken about 40 minutes at 350 degrees. While chicken is cooking make rice. After chicken has cooled, I cut into small pieces. Preheat wok or large skillet with 1 tbs oil, stir fry veggies and chicken together in the remainder of the teriyaki sauce. Serve over rice.

1 cup brown sugar

Bake 350 for 30 minutes. (I usually double the recipe for dinner group and holidays, and use a 9x13 dish instead) Hope your kids will eat it! Mine really like them!! (:

Barbecue Chicken Pizza

This isn't really even a recipe, I just kind of created it from a Pampered Chef recipe, but I have so many people ask me how to make it and my family LOVES it, so here goes:

1 loaf Rhoades bread dough, unthawed
3 cups cooked diced chicken
1 cup barbecue sauce, I use KC Masterpeice, I like it best for the pizza
2 cups mozzarella cheese
Toppings: any toppings work I've used green peppers, red onions, olives, mushrooms, pineapple whatever your family likes will work, I keep the onions and peppers large enough to be easily taken off by those who don't like them.
I thaw the bread dough in the microwave, then roll it out in the shape of the stone (rectangle or round). Bake the dough-only for about 10 minutes on 350 ( I do this to cook the crust a little before the toppings go on or they seem to make it soggy). Combine chicken and barbecue sauce together and put on dough. Add cheese and toppings. Bake on 350 for about 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Hope it is filling enough for your families, this is my families favorite meal . (Sue I'm thinking your family might need 2 pizzas, but not sure, do you have 2 stones. Let me know for next time. )
