Divine. Heavenly. That’s how I’d describe my Chicken, Bacon, Gorgonzola Flatbread, which is bubbly, creamy, bacon goodness.
Every day this week, I am showcasing a new flatbread creation and this is my favorite so far. Now, I am not done creating yet, but I’m in the home stretch.
This wonderful flatbread is topped with bits of tart apple that provide a nice contrast in terms of texture and flavor.
This pairs beautifully with red wine. The funny thing is I don’t usually like blue cheese, but Gorgonzola is much lighter than many other varieties and this doesn’t even taste like blue cheese. So if you think you don’t like blue cheese, it’s still worth trying this.
I can’t wait to eat it again.
Chicken, Bacon, Gorgonzola Flatbread
Makes 2 flatbreads
1 (8.8 ounce) package (which contains 2 flatbreads) of Stonefire Tandoori Baked Original Naan
5 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup real bacon pieces or chopped bacon, plus 1 teaspoon (do not use bacon bits)
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
½ cup Gorgonzola crumbles
1 ¼ cups chopped rotisserie chicken
2/3 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 Granny Smith apple
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Stir together cream cheese, bacon, heavy whipping cream, garlic powder and Gorgonzola. Set aside.
Remove the breasts from the rotisserie chicken and chop those. Finely mince the Granny Smith apple and set aside.
When oven is preheated, spread half the cream cheese mixture on each flatbread. Sprinkle half the chicken on each flatbread and top with Mozzarella cheese.
Bake for 9 minutes. Then sprinkle with the apple and serve.
