Flatbreads are the perfect solution for quick weeknight dinners, snacks, or entertaining.
It only takes about 15 minutes to whip up a delicious flatbread, so I keep ingredients on hand all the time for these creations. I use naan for my crust and it freezes well. You can make a basic flatbread with sauce and cheese, but I prefer innovative bites. Any one of my recipes this week would make great Super Bowl party fare.
I made an amazing Barbecue Chicken Flatbread. I love barbecue style pizzas and flatbreads but there are a lot of mediocre ones out there. This one is topped with thick Kansas City style sauce, chicken, corn, bacon, a hint of onion, cheese and it’s all topped off with French’s Fried Onions- which makes the dish. The smoky bacon, sweet corn, and crispy onions make this flatbread stand out. It was wonderful and great party option. I can’t wait to eat it again.
You can also use leftover pulled pork or brisket.
Barbecue Chicken Flatbread
Makes 1 flatbread
1 small plain naan
3 tablespoons Kansas city style BBQ sauce
2/3 cup sliced chicken breast or rotisserie chicken
2/3 cup shredded Monterey-Jack cheese blend
2 slices of cooked bacon
1 ½ tablespoons canned corn, drained
1/2 cup French’s Fried Onions (or more)
1 tablespoon minced red onion
Cilantro to garnish (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Spread barbecue sauce over the pizza. Chop chicken breast and spread it over the sauce and then top with cheese.
Crumble the bacon and spread it over flatbread, along with corn. I drained the corn and dabbed it with a paper towel to make sure there was no more moisture. Top with both sets of onion.
Bake 7-9 minutes. Garnish with chopped cilantro, optional.
