Whether you’re an empty nester or still have kids at home, store bought rotisserie chicken can be your best friend. Yep. It’s a lifesaver for busy couples/families because you can throw it into salads, quesadillas, sandwiches, wraps, pastas, and use it to top pizzas, like this Chicken Pesto Burrata Naan Pizza with Fried Egg! And because we use rotisserie chicken, this entire meal takes two people less than 10 minutes to make. Cross my heart and hope to not to die.

Seriously, This is an Incredible Meal!

I know this pizza looks unassuming, but it is packed with flavor. And it’s incredibly simple to make. Just use store bought naan, top with basil pesto (make your own or buy store bought), creamy dreamy burrata cheese, and rotisserie chicken. A few minutes in the oven and voila! A gorgeous complete meal in minutes. Top with a fried egg to take it over the top and then pile on the greens! I use arugula drizzled with olive oil and lemon and sprinkled with sea salt and pepper for added flavor and nutrients. Top that pizza with a heaping bunch of salad, then fold and eat. A complete meal pizza, who knew?!

Those Eggs Though…

The importance of that egg on top cannot be over emphasized. It really finishes off the pizza perfectly, adding to all the already amazing flavor! I will encourage you to keep the egg yolk runny. It’s the best! Using your naan to wipe up that yolk is heavenly. But if you are like my husband and prefer it cooked through, then I say go ahead and overcook it:) Learn to fry the perfect egg here!

Divvying Up The Jobs:

If one person makes this meal, it’s fast. If two people do, it’s lightening fast! That is if lightening took 8 minutes to make… Here’s how you do it: One of you preheats the oven and shreds the chicken, while the other spreads the pesto on the naan, then you can both add cheese and pine nuts to your liking. Pop it in the oven and while it cooks, one of you will take care of the salad while the other fries the eggs. Kitchen cooperation makes the meal taste even better.
