It appears this will be the week of "What does Jenni have in the pantry/refrigerator/freezer that can be used to make dinner?" I am trying to use up as much as possible so we don't have to throw it out or take it with us. It's been an interesting and tasty challenge! I am actually working on making snacks and meals to freeze and take with us next week. We will be spending a few days in an hotel before heading out of town. We are waiting until Libby gets home for spring break and is able to visit a few people before we stick her in the car for two days of travel (with the dogs). It will be a great bonding time for all of us. Oh my!
So, the other day I was looking through the freezer and happened upon a package of ground chicken, plus a package of flatbread. Hmm. How about making something different, I thought. I ran the idea by Chip and we created these delicious taco flatbread pizzas. This would be a nice twist if your family enjoys tacos and pizza! Plus, it's quick and easy.
Here is all you need to make this work.
1 1/2 pounds ground chicken
6 Tbsp Penzey's Original Taco Seasoning (or your favorite)
1 cup water
Whole Wheat Flatbread (we used three)
Shredded cheese, your choice
Tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, jalapenos for topping
*Preheat oven to 375°.
*Brown meat in a large non-stick skillet.
*Add taco seasoning and water. Reduce heat and allow to thicken.
*Spoon desired amount on flatbread and top with a little cheese. Bake for about 8 minutes, until cheese melts. Top with your favorite taco toppings and enjoy!
