CHEAP CHEAP ANYTHING is GREAT! This hot chicken bread is so fast, easy and CHEAP to make. (I am all about CHEAP GREAT TASTING FOOD) I am a true Econo-Mom! Ground chicken is one of those foods that people just seem to pass on up in the meat section BUT it really is so versatile and flavorful (and cheap) if you know how to dress it up! The mayo keeps the ground chicken from being Dry and Sawdusty. Pair this with a mixed greens salad or a good light soup and dinner is ON!
2Slice Ciabatta length ways and brush with melted butter. Place under broiler until butter and bread start turning brown and toasty. Remove and set aside. (I make all my breads homemade so the Ciabatta in the pictures look different because they are my homemade loaves I made fresh this morning) If anyone would like my recipe for Ciabatta Bread please just let me know :}
3MY HOMEMADE CIABATTA BREAD SUPER YUMMY :}
4Turn oven temperature to 400 degree
5In a skillet on medium heat add olive oil when oil is hot add ground chicken and break up - cook until half done and add green onions, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook chicken until done.
6Remove to bowl and add mayo, parmesan and half the swiss cheese. Fold to combine.
7Spread mixture onto the toasted Ciabatta and top with remaining swiss cheese.
8Place bread topped with chicken mixture on a baking sheet and bake in 400 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until cheese is nice and bubbly.
9Remove from oven and cut into serving size pieces. I serve this bread bake with soup in the winter months and nice mixed greens salad in the summer months.
10Here is a super neat trick for Green Onions:
Cut green tops off and use them. But save the white ends (about 4 inches leave the roots on. Stick them into a jar of water and place in a sunny spot in your kitchen and the tops will regrow with in 6 to 7 days and you have fresh green onion tops or chives whenever you want them!! I do this all year long :)
Just snip off what you need and they will grow back again. Change water about every 7 days and keep them chives growing!!!
11Step one for fresh chives: Cut green tops off and leave the white and roots. You should have about 3-4 inches of onion left with the roots still on.
12Step 2: Place onion roots into a container where the tops can stick up out of it. Add enough water to cover half way up the root stalk
13Step 3: Stick in window and watch them grow back this will take about 7 days.
14And Whaaaaaa Laaaaaaaaaaaa Fresh Chives :} Cut green tops and replace back into window and watch them grow again!
