BBQ Chicken Flatbread
Need an easy appetizer for a party? Try this one. It’s always a crowd-pleaser.
2 flatbreads (sold at specialty stores and some grocery stores)
1/4 cup shredded chicken breast
2-4 T. BBQ sauce (I like Trader Joe’s Bold and Smokey Kansas City Style)
5-8 sprigs of fresh cilantro
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
3-4 thin slices of a small red onion (peeled)
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!
PSST! Shred the chicken from a leftover piece of grilled chicken breast from the night before or cut from a roasted chicken from the deli section of most grocery stores. If you can’t find flatbread, you can use a lavosh bread instead.
4 ounces fresh goat cheese such as Laura Chenel, at room temperature
About 2 tsp. milk
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
40 dried apricots
40 almonds, preferably Marcona
2 teaspoons honey
1. Mix together cheese, 2 tsp. milk, and basil with a wooden spoon until spreadable. Thin with more milk if necessary.
2. Spread a heaping 1/4 tsp. cheese on each apricot and top each with an almond. Drizzle with honey.
Psst! You can make this healthy appetizer up to one day ahead. Refrigerate and then bring to room temperature (30-60 minutes before serving). Drizzle with honey just before serving.
