Recipe Box, BBQ Chicken & Corn Pizza with Spinach Salad Topping

Last weekend there was a concert on the water near our house

A big tug boat arrived pushing a palm tree lined barge, called “Gumbo Key,” that served as the stage for the bands

The only way to get there was by boat or by float

Party goers arrived on everything from yachts to cooler laden paddle boards, kayaks and jet skis

It wasn’t only crazy

It was mayhem     😉

It was fun to cruise around and see what everyone was up to

We saw some interesting sights…watch out for sharks!

You can see more photos of   Gumbo Key here

We worked up quite an appetite, and went home to an easy peasy BBQ chicken pizza made with some leftover Island Time Chicken Wings

 

Island Chicken Wings thepaintedapron.com

Island Time Chicken is a 5 Minute Prep, and a  Slow Cooker recipe, which is perfect for busy summer days.  You can make it with breast or thighs too, whatever you like

We loaded the slow cooker up with chicken wings Saturday and had enough left over for a tasty pizza on Sunday

This pizza features both white and red BBQ sauce

 

white BBQ sauce

 

If you’ve never had Alabama White BBQ sauce, you must remedy that immediately!

It’s wonderful on grilled chicken or on fish instead of tartar sauce

 

 

You can also substitute plain mayonnaise or creamy Italian, ranch or bleu cheese dressing

A thin base layer not only adds an extra tang but helps secure the toppings

Top the white sauce with chopped chicken, drizzle with red BBQ sauce and sprinkle it with bleu cheese crumbles

If you don’t like bleu cheese, skip cheese or substitute goat cheese or a white melting cheese like Mozzarella, Fontina, Manchego or Monterey Jack

Before serving give the spinach a whisper of olive oil and finish with a light sprinkle of kosher or finishing salt

    No Dukes? (faint) : )
    Gumbo Key would be fun if I had your easy access location, but I’ve often wondered about the major hassle of the crowd if you have to launch a boat from afar. Looks like you hit a home run with your paradise location and the after-event pizza! Yum!

    Great people and boat watching Jenna! I bet there are lots of sights to be seen and unseen 🙂 It’s borderline too hot to grill already this summer and slow cooker recipes are perfect to keep the heat out of the kitchen. I need to try chicken wings in the slow cooker!
