20 MINUTE CHICKEN CAESAR FLATBREAD

This is a cheesy and delicious meal that you can make quickly. It’s great for college kids or those in small apartment kitchens.

As well, it’s great to meal prep and make-ahead for lunch. For lunch, I package everything separately and put it all together when I’m ready to eat it. It’s good cold or reheated.

INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED

  1. Naan bread. You can get large or mini size naan bread which is individual size. I use individual sizes. (Naan freezes great if you find you have extra and no immediate plans to use it.)
  2. Romaine lettuce
  3. Chicken. I prefer chicken breasts or chicken tenders.
  4. Caesar dressing. Purchase your favorite or this is a great recipe.
  5. Parmesan cheese. Purchase a block of parmesan cheese and grate it. The powdery parmesan won’t melt correctly.
  6. Seasoning. Salt, Italian seasoning, pepper. Any Italian seasoning or make a mix.

CHICKEN FOR 20 MINUTE CHICKEN CAESAR FLATBREAD

If you enjoy grilling you can grill the chicken or you can rotisserie or leftover chicken. (As well, you can cook the entire flatbread on the grill instead of turning on your oven during the hot summer months.)

Poultry should be cooked until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Check the temperature by inserting the probe of a thermometer (I recommend this instant-read thermometer.)into the thickest part of the chicken. For chicken with bones, don’t touch the bone with the probe.

You can test it by cutting into the meat at the thickest part if you don’t have a thermometer. It’s cooked when the juices run clear and the meat is no longer pink.

Notes

If you have a 4 sided box grater for the cheese, I recommend using the larger holes for the cheese to be melted on the naan bread, and the smaller holes on the opposite side for the cheese combined with the salad.
