The Bermuda Triangle first gained attention when Flight 19, a group of 5 Navy torpedo bombers, disappeared while on a training flight over the Bermuda Triangle.  5 planes.  14 people.  Disappeared.  A Naval search plane with 13 members was subsequently sent out to look for the missing planes.  That search plane also disappeared.  While there have been a number of possible discoveries over the years, these 6 planes are officially still missing.  You gotta admit that it’s pretty strange.

These are only a couple of the more notable incidents involving the Bermuda Triangle.  And I haven’t even mentioned Scooby Doo! Pirates Ahoy!, a movie in which Scooby and the gang travel into the Bermuda Triangle only to discover ghost pirates.  (Kidding!)  In reality, there are plenty of reasonable explanations for the Bermuda Triangle.  The area is a hotbed of hurricane activity.  The Gulf Stream runs through the area, and it can sweep away any wreckage.  And, sure, the area was also notorious for pirates back in the day.  But the inexplicable angle is still fun to think about!

Switching gears to today’s recipe, I can say with 100% certainty that this Grilled Chicken Flatbread is not mysterious.  It is downright delicious, and I can detail every ingredient and every step that makes it so tasty!  Namely, the grilled chicken combined with the roasted garlic white sauce is a combination that’ll make your taste buds tingle.  Plus, who doesn’t love a good grilled flatbread?  It’s essentially pizza by another name, so of course it’s gonna be delicious!

I hope you enjoy this Grilled Chicken Flatbread as much as we do.  It’s a fun and tasty recipe!

  • 1 tsp Italian seasonings
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter

For the Sauce

  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • ½ Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ large red onion sliced into ¼” strips
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • ½ tsp Italian seasonings
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken stock

  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • cup heavy cream

For the Flatbreads

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 naan breads or flatbreads
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • ½ cup roasted red peppers drained
  • fresh basil chopped

Instructions

For the Chicken

  • Using a medium bowl, add cubed chicken, Italian seasonings, salt and pepper; toss until well coated.
  • Using a large skillet, add Tbsp of butter; place over medium-high heat. Once butter has melted, add cubed chicken. Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until chicken is fully cooked. Remove chicken and set aside.

For the Sauce

  • Using same skillet as chicken, add 2 Tbsp of butter and olive oil; place over medium-low heat. Once butter has melted, add onions, garlic and Italian seasonings; stir until well combined. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring often, or until onions have begun to soften slightly. Remove onions from skillet and set aside.
  • Add remaining 2 Tbsp of butter. Once melted, add flour and stir well. Continue cooking for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent flour from burning.
  • Add chicken stock, milk, chopped roasted garlic, salt and pepper; stir mixture until smooth.
  • Bring mixture to a simmer and cook on low heat, stirring often, for 8-10 minutes.
  • Add Parmesan cheese and heavy cream; stir until smooth.
  • Return onions to skillet; stir until well combined. Cook for 5-6 minutes, or until sauce has thickened slightly.

For the Flatbreads

  • Using a grill (outdoors) or grill pan (indoors), preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  • Brush flatbreads (or naan) with olive oil. Grill for 1-2 minutes per side, or until hot and slightly crispy.
  • Remove flatbreads from grill and place in a row. Spread several spoonfuls of sauce on top of each flatbread. Top flatbreads with cooked chicken, mozzarella, roasted red peppers and freshly chopped basil; serve hot.

Notes

Roasted garlic is easy to make at home, and I always keep some in the freezer. However, if your grocery store has an olive bar in the deli department, they might have roasted garlic on the bar, too.

    The roasted garlic sauce sounds amazing, David! And pizza by another name, well I can say with certainty this would be very popular around here! Using naans or flatbreads is a really clever idea, since I still can’t get yeast in the shops and so homemade pizza is off the books for now. Thanks for giving us an alternative!

    1. Naan is one of my favorites for making quick and easy pizza! I particularly like to brush them with a bit of olive oil and then grill them for 1-2 minutes. The flavor is awesome! 🙂 Good luck with the yeast, Katerina. (It’s out here, too…)

  2. Love a good historical mystery! We went to Bermuda for Christmas and lots of time was spent on Google (by me) looking up all the cases where planes, people and ships disappeared. My family was not amused.
    Love a good flatbread recipe! This looks like a fabulous easy weeknight dinner!

    1. Of course you researched the Bermuda Triangle – as I used to say, I think you’re my long-lost sister. Hah! I’m glad you made it back from Bermuda safely. Otherwise I wouldn’t have that banana crumb bread to dream about. 🙂

    1. Yes! I’ve made Flammkuchen before, and it’s amazing! Now I want to go look up that post and make it again. I remember thinking it didn’t sound impressive from the looks of it, but then it blew my mind when I ate it! 🙂 Thanks, Gerlinde!

    I’ve been creeped out by the Bermuda Triangle my whole life! I’m with you that the mysteries probably have logical explanations, and yet…

    This flatbread looks fabulous, David! We need to make this for a twist on our standard pizza night.

    1. Yes! I second your thoughts here, Marissa. It’s creepy as heck. There is probably some logical explanation, but still… I also put ghosts and the paranormal into that category. Anyways, all mysteries aside, this flatbread is amazing! The roasted garlic sauce packs a HUGE punch in flavor. 🙂

  4. 5 stars
    I was obsessed with the Bermuda Triangle as a kid and I remember being so disappointed the first time I read a reasonable explanation for the strange happenings there. It’s just more fun to pretend something nefarious is going on isn’t it? Anyway, this flatbread looks delicious! I think that I could eat that sauce with a spoon!

    1. Well here’s the thing, Kelsie. There can be a logical explanation…but it isn’t perfect. There’s still a lot of doubt and mystery swirling around out there. But what’s not mysterious? Where this roasted garlic sauce went. Haha! 🙂

  5. 5 stars
    I love flatbreads! They’re so tasty – and so many ways to make them even more delicious like you have done here.
    That sauce sounds so good also! This is a really delicious recipe, my friend!

    1. Yes! Flatbreads are a favorite here, too, Alex. After all, flatbreads are basically pizza by another name, right? 🙂 And this roasted garlic sauce? It’s delicious!!

  6. 5 stars
    I’m not into ghosts – at all, but the Bermuda Triangle does intrigue me. This pizza also is intriguing – in a good way, not a scary way!!! That roasted garlic sauce – yes please! Such a great way to mix up Friday night pizza!

    1. Yeah…there’s just something about the Bermuda Triangle. I mean there’s a lot of rational explanations out there, but there’s still just enough of an element of doubt. What’s not in doubt though is this roasted garlic sauce. It’s so good as a base for flatbreads! 🙂 Hope you have a great Mother’s Day weekend on tap, Kathy!

  7. Bermuda Triangle freaks me out so much! But this flatbread certainly doesn’t! Love everything going on here, David and I’m pretty sure I could devour the whole thing pretty quickly. I could see myself enjoying for supper tonight or for Friday eats. Another yummy recipe from ya, my friend 🙂 P.S. Love me some Scooby Do 😉

    1. I’m with ya, Dawn. There’s just something freaky about the Bermuda Triangle. I mean we can rationally explain the events…or can we?? I hope you have a delicious weekend on tap, Dawn! (And, yes, I love me some Scooby Doo, too!!)

    Haha – yup, I get a good chuckle every time someone refers to dust flecks as “mysterious orbs” too! Speaking of mysterious orbs, did y’all ever visit the “Sorrel Weed House”? Lil S and I did awhile back and they took us into the basement, cut the lights, and used a fancy camera to look at all the “mysterious orbs” in the room! Frankly, I would much rather they have presented us with a spoon of your garlic sauce thought! 🙂 This grilled chicken flatbread looks so good! Today we are supposed to be having pizza night but I’m thinking this might need to happen instead!

    1. The Sorrel Weed House? Hmmm…never heard of it. Sounds kinda cool, though! Although if it’s all about these so-called “orbs,” then I dunno. Several years ago, we went to Edinburgh on vacation and went down into the vaults on a tour where they cut the lights. It was creepy and scary as hell…but SO awesome! Either way, I hope you gals had an awesome weekend. And if you didn’t have grilled flatbreads for dinner last week, then put it on the menu for this week! 🙂

  9. If what you’re saying here is that chicken flatbread will keep you safe in the Bermuda triangle, I’m all for it. But it seems like one should have to add Bermuda onion to this flatbread for any kind of guarantee.

    1. That’s exactly what I’m saying, Jeff! Eat grilled chicken flatbread. Stay safe in the Bermuda Triangle. I’m not necessarily connecting those two statements together though.

    Love the roasted garlic sauce David! I can imagine that would be delicious on naans or flatbreads. I know we’re both fans of these types of recipes. Yours is delicious!

    1. I love a good grilled naan! It’s not quite a pizza, but it’s similar enough…and it’s basically a blank canvas for all sorts of delicious toppings! This roasted garlic sauce is a good one, too. Thanks, Neil!

    1. Yes! I was actually just thinking I need to DVR some ghost shows to watch sometime soon. Funny enough, one of my favorite parts about those shows is actually the cool places/history. And these flatbreads would make a great dinner while watching those shows. 🙂 Thanks, Dawn!

    I made this last night. I have been in a winter quarantine rut with recipes and was looking for something different. My 11 yo daughter helped and it was so much fun to make and not only that it was delicious! The kids even ate the peppers which I was shocked. Thanks so much for breaking up the boring dinners we were having with this awesome flatbread.

    1. Hey Kelley! Thank you so much for taking the time to come back and leave this comment – I truly appreciate it. I’m so glad you enjoyed this recipe, too. We often fall into that same rut with meals, and this is a fun way to mix things up – and you got the kids to eat peppers! Bonus! 🙂 Have a great weekend!
