Super Bowl Sunday is well known for massive amounts of highly fattening
and unhealthy foods. But it doesn’t have to be that way. This year, take
the challenge of a clean eating super bowl feast!
Clean eating is simply the art of eating foods that are not processed and
are as close to the way nature intended them as possible. If something has
ingredients in it that you can’t pronounce, or that you wouldn’t use in
your own kitchen, it’s probably not clean. This may sound a bit
overwhelming when you think of your typical day of eating. But it’s really
quite simple, and can easily be applied to your Super Bowl meal. To prove
it, here’s one clean eating recipe the guys are sure to love!
Clean Eating BBQ Chicken Roll
1 batch Clean Eating Pizza Dough
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp clean bbq sauce (I use the OrganicVille brand)
2 large chicken breasts
1 lb. crimini mushrooms
1 tbsp. olive oil + extra for greasing a cookie sheet
1 cup low-fat mozzarella cheese
1 full-sized cookie sheet
1 rolling pin
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Step 1 – Place the chicken breasts in the oven with 1 tbsp. bbq sauce on
each breast. Bake until the chicken reaches 160 degrees F. on a
Step 2 – While the chicken bakes, slice the mushrooms and dice the
shallots. Saute in a pan with the olive oil.
Step 3 – Grease the cookie sheet and roll out the dough until it covers
the entire sheet.
Step 4 – Spread on the bbq sauce, being sure to leave about an inch of raw
(no sauce) dough all the way around.
Step 5 – Spread on the mushrooms over the sauce.
Step 6 – When the chicken is done, shred it with two forks and toss onto
the pizza roll, over the mushrooms.
Step 7 – Top everything with the mozzarella.
Step 8 – At one of the narrow ends, begin rolling the dough up like a
carpet until you have a nice “log”. Seal the end by turning the roll
slightly on the cookie sheet so that it sits on the end piece of the dough.
This will seal it as it bakes. Pinch off the ends so your filling does not
leak out during baking.
Step 9 – Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. The crust will be firm and almost
Step 10 – Slice and serve topped with a little extra bbq sauce.
