I had both Mozzarella and Red Leicester cheese but not enough to make anything proper with. That along with an odd green chilli a few rashers of bacon and a red bell pepper.

Onions, you should have anyway says I, so armed with these ingredients the pizza topped chicken was created! Bash the chicken fillets between cling film until they're a bit thinner but not completely flattened!

Put the chicken side by side into the dish and top with the cheeses, onion slices, bell pepper and chilli and fried bacon bits.

Chicken melt - pizza topping ready to cook

Pop into the oven for about 25 to 30 minutes - just check the chicken is cooked through and serve immediately with some nice salad and a bowl of potato wedges for good measure - homemade of course.
