Ingredients
1 pkg. PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® Lightly Breaded Nuggets (20 oz.)
4 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 bag frozen mixed vegetables (11 ounces)
1 jar low sodium pizza or spaghetti sauce (24 ounces)
1 tsp dried Italian seasoning
1 cup low fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 tube refrigerated pizza dough, cut into strips
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
Instructions
1 Pre-heat oven to 400F and prepare a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

TIP: If you can't find refrigerated pizza dough, use a tube of refrigerated bread sticks. For a tasty twist, replace pizza sauce with jarred pesto or Alfredo sauce. Want more veggies? Toss is drained artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes or olives. Note: Nutritionals reflect recipe prepared with PERDUE Chicken Breast Nuggets.
2 Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add the bag of mixed vegetables and cook for 5 minutes.
3 Add the pizza sauce and the Italian seasonings. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, until slightly thickened.
4 Remove skillet from heat and stir in the nuggets.
5 Spoon chicken mixture into the prepared baking dish.
6 Top casserole with shredded mozzarella.
7 Arrange pizza dough strips on top in a criss-cross pattern. Brush dough with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
8 Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the pizza dough strips are browned and the filling is bubbly.
