Grilled Chicken Flatbread with Feta, Olives and Roasted Peppers

Something exotic yet simple was what I wanted for dinner today. So while I was rummaging through my thoughts and trying to put a finger to what to put together for dinner to satisfy my craving, I remembered a recipe for Chicken Flatbread which I had put together on a spur of the moment standing in the aisle of a super market to convince K why I must absolutely buy that flatbread ;). It was an ode to the flatbread staring in my face and calling out to me "Pick me". So finally, Mr. K was convinced and we got the flatbread home. Ever since then the flatbread has become a frequent addition to our shopping cart.

Chicken Flatbread

3-4 loaves Southwestern Flatbread

1 Tomato diced
Salt, Pepper
Shredded Cheese
Feta Cheese

Method
1. Cook the chicken as per packet instructions. I prefer to make it in the skillet instead of the microwave.
2. Preheat the oven to 425 F. Prepare a sheet pan by covering it with foil
3. Lay the flatbread on the sheet pan. Drizzle some oil and vinegar mixture from the roasted peppers. Alternatively you can use olive oil and balsamic vinegar
4. Then add roasted pepper, sliced olives, diced tomatoes, season as per taste.

5. Add a few sprigs of rosemary.
5. Place the pan in the oven for 3-4 minutes. Remove add shredded cheese and return to oven for 4-5 minutes till cheese melts.

6. Remove from the oven, add Feta cheese if using.

Variations:
1. You can skip the chicken and add some more veges.
