Football on the brain. That would be the condition my hubby has right about now. The treatment? Appetizers, and man food. Lots of it! I just didn't want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen. So I whipped together these BBQ Chicken Pizza Sticks and they turned out fantastic...if I do say so myself. They are the perfect finger food.
If you have never tried a BBQ chicken pizza you are missing out. You have to give it a whirl at least once. The sweetness of the BBQ Sauce and the creaminess of the cheese are terrific together!
