Chicken Pizzas - Gluten Free, Grain Free

These  Chicken Pizzas are gluten free, grain free and yummy.  A party dish, which can be prepared well in advance and kept in the refrigerator. Just half an hour before serving pop them into the preheat oven.  Ta .. Da.. these are ready to be served. 

1/4 Cup Oil
2 Chicken Breast
1 Medium Onion - chopped
2 Garlic Cloves - paste
1 Cup Pasta sauce
1/2 cup Red Chilly Garlic sauce
Fresh Basil Leaves or 
1 teaspoon dried Basil
1 Cup Cheezza Cheese
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Freshly crushed Black pepper


Preheat the oven 200 degrees. 
Cut the each chicken breast in to 3 pieces. Now give a cross cut in each part, but not till the bottom ( it should looks like a flower see pic). 
Pat them dry and  fry on high flame with just a tablespoon of oil,  the cut side down till they are nicely browned on both sides ( do not  cook them, just want to seal the juices in the chicken, so while baking they do dry out). Then keep aside.

Heat remaining oil in a pan . Add onion and garlic cook for 2 minutes . Add pasta sauce and red chilly garlic sauce bring to the boil stir in basil. Season with salt and pepper . 
Place the chicken in a ovenproof dish, fill each chicken piece with the prepared sauce by pressing the filling into the cuts.
 Top it with cheese .  Place a small leaf of basil.   
Place them on a buttered pyrex dish pour a teaspoon of water in the dish ( this is to prevent the chicken from drying).
 Bake for 10 to 15 minutes till the chicken is done, the  top is golden and cheese has melted. Serve hot.
 To make it a complete meal serve them on a bed of gluten free boiled spaghetti or  noodles or on a bed of rice -that's just saute in olive oil, garlic and basil .
