I like to collect things. It all started with baseball cards when I was a kid. Then it moved into comic books. And now it’s moved into…pizza wheels. Ok, to be fair, the pizza wheels weren’t exactly something I planned to collect. It just happened. When I went to pull out a pizza wheel for slicing these Chicken Fajita Flatbreads, I realized I have 4 pizza wheels. Who needs 4 different pizza wheels!? (This guy, apparently.)

We have more pizza wheels than people in this house. And let’s be real. I only have two hands, so two pizza wheels is all a person really needs. (And that’s for a really skilled person who can use two pizza wheels at once!) Once these Chicken Fajita Flatbreads were done, I reached for one of those pizza wheels and sliced these flatbreads up. The rest was history. These flatbreads were absolutely delicious, and they didn’t last very long at all.

I made these Chicken Fajita Flatbreads for a recent game night here in our house. Whenever we host game nights, I like to make something easy for dinner. I don’t want to be standing in the kitchen the whole time while Laura and our friends are playing games without me! These Chicken Fajita Flatbreads were perfect for game night – easy to make and packed with flavor. For starters, I used Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Fully Cooked Grilled Chicken Breast Strips. Have you seen these in the store? The chicken breast strips are already cooked, so it makes dinner come together in a jiffy!

Tyson® Grilled & Ready chicken is 100% natural which means it contains no artificial ingredients, and it’s minimally processed. It’s also really juicy! And since this product is frozen, it means you can keep a bag on hand in the freezer for quick and easy meals. All you have to do is heat the chicken up in a dry skillet for several minutes. Dinner done! I picked up a bag of Tyson® Grilled & Ready chicken in the freezer aisle at Walmart last week when I was making my weekly grocery store run with Robbie. And now I’m totally picking up another bag this week!

In addition to the grilled chicken strips, these Chicken Fajita Flatbreads also feature sauteed onions and peppers along with a bit of pepperjack or Monterey Jack cheese. Remember how I said I liked easy recipes for game night? These sauteed onions and peppers are super easy, too! Just slice ’em up and let ’em cook in a large skillet. You will need to stir them occasionally…say in between each round of your card game…or at the commercial break if you’re watching football.

Sauteed onions and peppers bring a lot to the table in terms of flavor, but I added a secret twist here. I whipped up a liquid “sauce” of sorts that gets added after the veggies are done cooking. It boosts the flavor through the roof! Take a flatbread, add a small handful of cheese and then load it high with sauteed veggies and Tyson® Grilled & Ready chicken. I can promise you these flatbreads won’t last long! And since they’re so easy to make, you could totally pull these together on a busy weeknight, too.

  1. But one does need different sized pizza wheels, so there’s that… I might have been snobby about buying this kind of chicken in the past, but if it’s good, why not? It certainly helps parents feeding their children, and much easier than tearing apart a rotisserie chicken. Love the flatbread idea.

    1. Aye. You make an excellent point, Mimi. There is something indeed to be said about multiple sizes of pizza wheels. At any rate, I’ve got you covered there! 🙂

      Also, this chicken is seriously delicious. Laura and I were both quite pleased, and Robbie even took a nibble. <--That's pretty big for a non-adventurous 4-year old. The flatbread idea is a favorite!

  2. 5 stars
    I remember when I had my first flatbread pizza in Germany years ago. It was delicious. Yours looks wonderful. There are times in our life when we need all the help we can get.

    1. I couldn’t agree with you more, Mimi! The evening time is a blur in our house. That’s why simple ideas like this one are perfect! Plus, there is so much flavor locked up in these flatbreads. Delicious!

    1. This is a seriously easy game day app or meal! In fact, I’ve got all of the ingredients on hand to make it again…and I’m thinking dinner tonight is gonna be delicious! 🙂

  3. My list of March Madness food just keeps getting longer. Love how easy these are! And this post makes me realize it’s been way too long since I hosted a game night–it’s time to change that. . .Hope you’re having a great week!

    1. Oh man, you and me both, Kelsie! I live for March Madness…and I live for March Madness food, too. These flatbreads are a buzzer-beater for sure. (<--You like what I did there??) And that veggie sauce? Uh, woah. I highly recommend a game night soon, too. They're so much fun!

  4. 5 stars
    I collect things too…those cute little Funko Pops for one. I have SO many! What can I say, I love ’em! That chicken looks incredibly convenient and just love these fajitas. They would make for such a delicious weekday meal or even for weekend or game day eats! No going wrong there! Have a wonderful weekend ahead 🙂

    1. Funko Pops, eh? I admittedly had to google those to see what they are. I know what you’re talking about! I’ve been in several comic book stores that have walls filled with these. Is that what your house looks like? 🙂

      So chicken fajitas are one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. Turning them into flatbreads just makes ’em easier to eat! It’s a win-win for game night. Thanks so much, Dawn!

    1. Thanks so much, Kathy! We love easy meals around here…I don’t need to be standing in the kitchen when there are games to be played and movies to be watched! Speaking of weekends, I hope you have a great weekend ahead, my friend. Plan a board game night and make some fajitas perhaps? 🙂

    1. Hah! I like your spin on this one, Matt. Those extra pizza wheels are just spares. I mean what would I do if I went to cut my pizza (or flatbread) and I couldn’t find a pizza wheel!? 🙂

  5. these look tasty david. i think i have 3 pizza cutters in my drawers! one is in the shape of a bicycle, in fact. that was a gift, so i need no excuses:) cheers S

    1. Ok, so I’m not the only one with a surplus of pizza wheels! And a pizza wheel shaped like a bike? Now that’s unique! 🙂 Thanks, Sherry!

    1. I’m with ya, Dawn! Chicken fajitas are a favorite around here, and I love ’em no matter the form. These flatbreads are perfect for game day! 🙂
