Directions

  1. While still frozen, take the Tyson Red Label® Grilled Chicken Breast Strips and place them in a large mixing bowl.  

  2. Spray or mist the breast strips lightly with extra-virgin olive oil. Dust on the no sodium blackening seasoning and mix gently so as not to break the grilled chicken breast strips apart. Slack out breast strips with the seasoning on. Once slacked out, gently fold to mix any parts of the chicken that aren’t seasoned. 

  3. Place the crust on a pizza screen or wire rack. Spread out the buffalo sauce evenly across the crust leaving approx. ½” of crust un-sauced at the edge. Add the bacon pieces.

  4. Sprinkle the cheddar/mozzarella blend on the crust, working from the outside in. 

  5. Evenly distribute the breast strips across the top of the pie.

  6. Bake until bubbly and golden brown according to your oven temperature and timing. 

  7. Directly out of the oven, sprinkle with the bleu cheese crumbles. 

  8. Top with the pickled carrots, starting in the center. 

  9. Drizzle with the buttermilk ranch dressing and garnish with chives. 

  10. Slice and serve.
