Pretty soon, it is going to be time for our Pastured, Red Ranger Chickens to become "oven ready"! They have been enjoying the clover, alfalfa, and tasty insects as they travel through the pastures behind our heritage-breed Red Devon beef cattle. This not only makes for nutritious chicken, but also nutrient-filled soil! We love to implement regenerative, agricultural practices throughout our farm....just as nature intended.
After a long day of farming, we like to come in to some thing quick, but tasty and comforting. Chicken-Alfredo Pizza is one of our family's favorites! Enjoy!
1 Devon Valley Farms Pastured Chicken, picked off-bone & shredded
1 Jar Alfredo Sauce (or Homemade Alfredo, see below)
2 cups Fresh Spinach Leaves, roughly chopped
16 oz. Mozzarella Cheese, Shredded
Parmesan, grated or shredded
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Make pizza crust as directed, but DO NOT bake yet. Spread Alfredo Sauce over crust. Top with Spinach leaves, Pastured Chicken pieces, and Shredded Mozzarella. Bake for approx. 8-10 minutes. Top with Parmesan before serving.
Homemade Alfredo Sauce
2 Tbsp. Butter (can use a Dairy-free margarine to make Dairy-Free)
2 Tbsp. Spelt or Rye Flour
1-2 cups Milk (almond milk works great for a dairy-free option)
1 Cup Parmesan, grated
Garlic Powder and salt to taste
Melt Butter in Cast Iron Skillet over medium heat; slowly whisk in the flour. Add milk in increments to avoid clumping; add just till you reach your desired consistency. Mix in Parmesan.
