BBQ chicken pizza

BBQ chicken pizza

Another recipe from my teaching days. I taught this during the leavening agents unit – specifically, yeast. It was a hit because California Pizza Kitchen was attracting a lot of attention at the nearby King of Prussia Mall, and my students were familiar as this pizza was one of their best sellers.

Oven-Baked Chicken Nuggets

Oven-Baked Chicken Nuggets

Another crowd-pleaser from my teaching days. We made these, of course, in the protein unit. The kids loved them and many made for their families at home.
