Recipe Steps

  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Medium Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve and peel shallot. Slice halves into thin strips. Halve tomatoes. Pat chicken breasts dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1” dice. Season with a pinch of pepper.

  • Step 2 - Caramelize the Shallot

    Caramelize the Shallot

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add shallot to hot pan. Stir occasionally until tender and lightly caramelized, 8-10 minutes. Transfer shallot to a plate and set aside. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 3 - Cook Chicken and Par-Bake Flatbreads

    Cook Chicken and Par-Bake Flatbreads

    Return pan used to caramelize shallot to medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and chicken to hot pan and cook undisturbed until browned on one side, 3-4 minutes. Then stir occasionally until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner. While chicken cooks, place flatbreads directly on oven rack and bake in hot oven until lightly browned, 6-8 minutes.

  • Step 4 - Assemble the Pizzas

    Assemble the Pizzas

    Place browned flatbreads on a clean work surface. Drizzle each flatbread with ¼ tsp. olive oil. Divide chicken between each flatbread, then add mozzarella, tomatoes, and caramelized shallot.

  • Step 5 - Bake the Pizzas

    Bake the Pizzas

    Place assembled pizzas directly on top oven rack, with prepared baking sheet on rack below to catch any drips. Bake until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted, 5-7 minutes. Rest cooked pizzas 5 minutes. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing pizzas with basil pesto and arugula. Bon appétit!
