The Ultimate Football Recipe Challenge: Swanson Poppy Seed Chicken Pizza Bites

Swanson Premium Chunk Chicken has asked bloggers to come up with the Ultimate Football recipe using the Swanson Premium Chunk Chicken. These cans of chicken are so convenient for busy moms, and families to throw lunch dinner, or a quick snack together in minutes. I knew exactly what I wanted to make for this contest.

This is a family recipe but altered to be more party friendly!

      Thank you Tina! How have you been? You did a great job on Melissa’s hair. Mine is red too but it doesn’t look near as good as the job you did! When my kids are older, I’m going to ask you do do mine. ;-)

      Thanks again for leaving a comment on the Chicken Recipe!

  1. Summer Oleksy says

    That looks good. I’m not a big fan of poppy seeds though; I love having a base recipe that I can personalize.

  2. Holly says

    Looks really good, and I bet my boys would love it. I like to use the canned chicken to make chicken salad with mayo, cut up celery, and dried cherries. It’s always a hit, and it goes fast!

  3. Julie Neve says

    Oh, that is such a great idea! I like the canned chicken. I try to get it on sale, always a great quick back up lunch!

  4. says

    This sounds amazing. I Iove putting ritz crackers in recipies. Once I used them instead of bread crumbs to coat chicken strips. That was yummy too.

  5. JD Northwest says

    Nothing says football like a pizza. I think I’d go with ‘more’ for step 6) Spoon out the heated chicken mixture onto the pizza crust, use as much or as little as you would like on your pizza. Spread out to the edges. :)

  6. Lynn H says

    Ok I didn’t even know you could get chicken in a can! I like the Swanson brand so I’ll give this a try. Maybe something I can get my child(ren) to help with.
    As a bonus everyone in my family are Ritz cracker addicts.

  7. Kellie Conklin says

    While I am normally one to not want to try unique recipes, this just looks awesome! I love the use of crushed Ritz crackers on the top, the idea of creamy and crunchy textures both going on is great. Plus, it seems very simple to make! Can’t wait to try it, thanks for the recipe (and pictures!!)!

  8. Rosey says

    How incredibly unique. My teen loves Chicken Pizza so we’re going to have to give your recipe a whirl. I love making new things in the kitchen. Thank you for the idea.
