BBQ Chicken Flatbread
Need an easy appetizer for a party? Try this one. It’s always a crowd-pleaser.
Store bought flatbread (sold at specialty stores and some grocery stores)
shredded chicken breast
BBQ sauce (I like Trader Joe’s Bold and Smokey Kansas City Style)
fresh cilantro sprigs
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 of a small red onion (thinly sliced)
Place the flatbread on a cookie sheet and place in a 350 degree oven for 2-3 minutes.
Remove from oven and spread a thin layer of bbq sauce on the flatbread.
Add shredded chicken and red onion slices.
Add a thin layer of mozzarella cheese.
Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and edges of bread are lightly browned.
Remove from oven and add fresh cilantro leaves.
Slice and place on a serving dish and serve immediately. Enjoy!
Fresh and light, this Goat Cheese with Lemon and Rosemary is an easy and tasty appetizer you can serve in both in the summer and winter. I first enjoyed this when my sister served this before a holiday meal. Bring it to a potluck or a party. Your guests will Ooo and Ahh!
The secret is fresh rosemary. I have it growing in my garden and I love the aroma as well as the flavor it brings to so many dishes.
Goat Cheese with Lemon, Garlic and Rosemary
1 5 oz. log of goat cheese
zest of one lemon
1/8- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 large clove of garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
salt to taste
Mix all ingredients but the goat cheese together. Place the goat cheese on a small dish with a lip and pour the mixture over the cheese. Marinate for 4 hours to allow the flavors to mingle. Sprinkle with a little more rosemary to taste and garnish with a sprig. Serve with water crackers. Enjoy!

1. Mix together cheese, 2 tsp. milk, and basil with a wooden spoon until spreadable. Thin with more milk if necessary.
