BBQ Chicken Pizza

I made this for someone special, as it is their favorite pizza.  My parents ended up eating it as well and have asked me to make it again since then.  My mom usually hates pizza, but she loves this one!

This recipe makes 2 pizzas

2 Pizza Shells
3 chicken breasts
1/2 red pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 green pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
2 bunches of cilantro, finely chopped by knife or in a food processor
2 cups BBQ sauce
3 cups Monterrey jack cheese
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking pan with tin foil, spray with cooking oil, and put the 3 chicken breasts in it.  Spread BBQ sauce on both sides of the breasts and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until cooked.
While waiting for chicken to cook, start cutting the vegetables into THIN slices, and set aside.
Grate cheese onto a plate for later.  Grate more than recipe calls for, if desired.
Spread 3/4 of a cup of BBQ sauce on each pizza shell (or more if desired).
Remove cilantro leaves off of stem and finely chop by hand or in a food processor.
Spread chopped cilantro evenly over BBQ sauce on each pizza shell.
Place onion and peppers evenly over pizza shells.
Thinly slice cooked chicken and place evenly over pizza shells.
Evenly cover vegetables and chicken with both cheeses.
Place pizza crust on cookie sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
