CHICKEN FLORENTINE FLATBREAD

May 28, 2014

There is a high demand in our house for dinners with the ease and convenience of my typical weeknight rotations, but that can add something totally fresh. I can (and do) buy frozen pizzas when we are in a pinch, but I strive to create similar-but-different (and way flavorful!) alternates. Without a doubt, I got way more cheers from the husband for this than ordering even his favorite takeout pizza.

    This looks so good. My siblings and I used pita bread once to make a sort for margherita pizza with no sauce just cherry tomatoes, basil, soft mozzarella and salt and pepper. It was delicious. I can’t remember if it also had olive oil included. I think maybe yes. But super easy recipe that anyone can do and this one looks so good I have to try it.

    Hi! I am clueless when it comes to cooking but I would like to try eating healthier, so I am looking for easy recipes. Saw your site thru Pinterest. My question is, if I don’t have an oven, will a turbo broiler give the same results? Thanks.

    I used Alfredo sauce as a base. It was excellent.

  • where did you get your marble cutting board?

    • Rachel Schultz

      It is actually just a piece of marble tile from Home Depot that I use only for cooking. It was only about $4.
