I’m so in love with great flavor. I’m also in love with convenience meals. So microwave meals were always in my freezer but I’l trying to make more things fresh with ingredients I pick up from the store myself. This is a dish that I used to buy a lot of but now I can make myself. I use the new Hungry Girl FoldIt Flatout bread to keep it low calorie and my portions controlled.
Here is what you will need for the Chicken Quesadilla Flatbread Melt. There are a few different flavors but for this one I used Rosemary & Olive Oil. You can prepare your ingredients to ways. You can fire roast your peppers before you dice them or choose to sauté them when you prepare. I decided to dice them all before hand because I knew I wouldn’t use all of them at once.
Flip your flatbread over. One side has the circles on it, this is meant to be the outside because it is softer. The other side looks more like lines from where it was baked. Brush the top with olive oil and sprinkle any seasonings you’d like. I used Italian seasoning but it is a “mexican” inspired meal. This just gives an awesome boost of flavor once it’s baked in.
Chicken Quesadilla Flatbread Melt (Just like Stouffer’s)
Ingredients for a single melt:
1 tbsp Poblano Pepper
1 tbsp Onion
1 tbsp Red Pepper
5 drops of Olive Oil
Seasoning (I used Italian)
1/2 cup Mexican Blend Cheese – Monterrey Jack & Cheddar (I like cheese)
Dice onions, peppers and chicken.
Sauté 1tbsp of each (peppers and onions) for 3-4 minutes or until starting to brown on the edges.
Place a few drops of olive oil on the top of the flatbread and brush until covered. Sprinkle with your seasoning and turn over.
Place peppers and onion mix on one half of the fold it bread. Place the diced chicken on the opposite side.
Cover both sides with cheese.
Toast or bake in a toaster oven for 10 minutes (or cheese is thoroughly melted).
Fold the bread in half and squish together. Serve!
