When I grill something for dinner, I try to make extra to use for lunch the next day or even for a second dinner.
Which is a perfect use for those meat deals that you see at the grocery store when a certain product needs to be sold quick because the ‘cook or freeze by’ date is quickly approaching. At our FAVORITE grocery store, Wegmans, I happened across one of those deals for chicken with no antibiotics or hormones. Score!! Because seriously, who doesn’t love to save money on good food.
So I grilled up about 3 pounds of chicken in one night, even though the date on the package was still three days away. But grilling it all together I knew would save me time the rest of the week.
The first night for dinner I made chicken salads. Just topped off our normal salads (you can see how I put them together every week here) with a hearty helping of chicken, avocado, and quinoa. Seriously delicious!
The next day, my post workout meal was more of the grilled chicken and quinoa. And that night for dinner we had Grilled Chicken Flatbreads (and of course a side salad).
This is one meal that I have been making more often this summer. Its’s easy. Quick. And my toddler will eat it without argument. (Win!)
We found these high protein flatbreads after I had my wisdom teeth removed recently. Even though the meals I made for myself before surgery were delicious, (you can check them out here), I needed to find something soft to eat, (I seriously missed chewing!), and just chanced upon these.
The macros on these work well enough for me that I have tried to incorporate them into the normal dinner routine. High Protein and Low carb!
With the left over grilled chicken, I also added sliced bell pepper and onion. I love adding bell peppers to everything! They are so filling and full of flavor! I topped it off with a small drizzle of yellow mustard, folded the flatbread in half, and toasted it on our George Forman indoor grill.
Our George Forman indoor grill is a basic older model but we use it often to grill up some sausage patties for special Sunday breakfasts to making grilled cheese (you get nice grill marks without needing gobs of butter to do it!!). You could also use a panini press or even warm up the chicken flatbreads in a skillet on the stove.
We have also had these cold. Which would work very well if you were going on a picnic with your family. It is very versatile. My sons grilled chicken flatbread consisted of the chicken, peppers, and onions with the addition of mayo and cheese.
I feel you could pretty much put anything you want on these flatbreads and it would taste wonderful!
Try it out for yourself! Mix it up and try something different! Let me know how you like it!
