Moving, even if just across town, can throw any routine off kilter. Don't let your move leave you ordering out, eating out and pigging out. Find recipes and plan beforehand so that you are prepared for your dinnertime rush, even amidst the boxes and chaos of local moving.

Easy meals include anything that you don't need to refrigerate beforehand. Odds are, you won't have the time or the patience to remember where you put the cooler full of cheese, condiments and other cooking ingredients that came out of your old fridge, so choose a meal that won't need a lot of refrigeration, if any at all.

Plus, your local move is probably going to be more chaotic than you might imagine, so be prepared. Choose a meal that will use the appliances already in your home. Even if you are bringing your grill with you, you probably don't want to spend time in front of the hot grill flipping burgers. Your oven and microwave can be your best friend your first few days in your new home. One quick and easy recipe that is sure to please is Barbecue Chicken Pizza.

Barbecue Chicken Pizza

Necessary Utensils:
Oval Pizza Pan with Holes for Proper Ventilation
Pizza Cutter or Large Knife
Spatula
Pot Holder

Ingredients:
Cooking Spray
Boboli, Pre-baked, Non-Refrigerated Pizza Crust
18 oz. Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce
Mozzarella Cheese and/or Parmesan Cheese (This can be purchased at the grocery store before your move and stored in a portable lunch box with ice packs until you get to your new home, or send your spouse out for it as soon as they look like they need a break. Plus, while they are at the store, they can pick up drinks.)
One Can of Swanson's Canned Chicken Breasts (The cans look like tuna cans but are larger. Make sure it is packages with water and has no additional flavorings.)

Directions:
1. Spray the cooking spray on your pizza pan.
2. Place the pizza crust on the pan.
3. Spread a good layer of barbecue sauce on the pizza crust. If you would like, cook the sauce and pizza crust for about 5 minutes to help make it crunchier. (Follow your specific pizza crust instructions to insure proper cooking times and temperatures.)
4. Drain chicken and sprinkle over sauce.
5. Top with cheeses.
6. Cook until cheese is browning at the edges and fully melted. (Again, be wary of the cooking instructions on the pizza crust packaging.)
7. Enjoy!

Your family is sure to love this delicious, quick and easy dinner. Don't forget to pack all the ingredients and utensils ahead of time and to make sure it is labels accordingly so that the box does not get lost in your local move. Let the movers know that that box is important and should be packed last so that it comes off first and makes it to the kitchen. Being organized and prepared is the best way to ensure your local move will go smoothly and quickly.
