Chicken, Roasted Garlic and Red Pepper Flatbread

June 23, 2011

Another delicious variation for flatbread!  The prep isn’t difficult but it will take a little time in the oven.  Start the  garlic and pepper roasting and then move on to the dough.  They’ll be ready when you are.

Be sure to start with Flatbread Dough for the dough recipe and how to put it all together.

  • Flatbread Dough
  • Chicken Breast Tenderloins
  • Garlic, 1 head
  • Red Bell Pepper (or make it easier with a  jar of roasted red peppers)
  • Rosemary, 1 to 2 tablespoons, snipped
  • Olive Oil
  • Asiago Cheese
  • Black Pepper

Heat the oven to 400.  Slice the tips off the head of garlic and put it on a small baking pan.  Bake for about an hour.

Cut the pepper in half and place it, skin side up, on a baking sheet.  Put it under the broiler for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the skin starts to blacken.  Let it cool enough to handle, pull off the blackened skin and chop it up.

In a skillet or saute pan, heat a little olive oil over medium to medium high heat and brown the chicken.  Reduce the heat and let it cook until it’s done, turning a few times.

By now the garlic should be done, all nice and soft and brown.  Turn the oven heat up to 500 and put your pizza or baking stone on the middle rack.

Dice the chicken.

Now all the ingredients should be ready.  Start with a crust that’s been baked for just a few minutes.  Squeeze a few soft, roasted garlic cloves onto the dough and spread it around.

Add layers of chicken, peppers and rosemary then grate a generous amount of Asiago over the top.  My pizza stone isn’t very well seasoned and things tend to stick so I use a sheet of parchment paper underneath to make things easier.

Bake on the hot pizza stone for another 5 to 7 minutes, until the bread gets brown and crispy around the edges and the cheese is melted.  Let it sit for just a few minutes before slicing.

Slice it into wedges and serve hot.  Enjoy!
