Pesto Chicken Caprese Flatbread with shredded pesto chicken, cherry tomatoes, and fresh basil, mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
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.
