Lately I feel like I barely have time to keep my family fed and in clean clothes. Five O’clock creeps up so fast and I’m scrambling to think of a quick dinner everyone will love.

I have a firm policy that the kids eat what we eat. Period. I’m not making more than one dinner.  And to make this happen, I keep an arsenal 30-minutes dinner ideas close by so that dinner is never a chore!

These Pesto Chicken Caprese Flatbreads are amazing, and so EASY! You can use homemade or store-bought flatbread. Confession: I totally buy mine this time of year. It makes dinner super easy when I’m in a crunch. And I keep homemade pesto in my freezer, that way I can always have some for yummy recipes like this.

    It looks as though the flatbread in the picture also has, possibly, artichoke or some ingredient not list above?

    Absolutely the best ever!!! The balsamic vinegar sends it over the top. I did not have flatbread but had some homemade pizza dough in the fridge and used that. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  3. Hi Lauren
    I’m wondering if you have a recipe for the flatbread? I can’t find it at costco so I need to make it myself.
    Thanks a bunch

    1. One serving is 1/2 a flatbread (there are 4 serving in the recipe). Each serving is estimated to contain 14g of carbohydrate.

    This is a delicious quick supper using ingredients I usually have in my fridge and pantry. The fresh basil is a must; I always have basil growing in my kitchen. We love it on many Italian type meals. If one doesn’t have flatbread on hand, it is very easy and quick to make.
