Can I meal prep this flatbread?
The flatbread is best to be enjoyed the day you make it or leftovers the next day (without the ranch and avocado!). If you wanted to save some time, you can prep the grilled chicken to have ready for the flatbreads and an easier assembly.
Can I use a different cheese?
Yes! If you want to use a shredded mexican cheese, cheddar or mozzarella you can do that too! I found this one at HEB and loved the little kick of jalapeno it had in it for this flavor combination.
What if I don’t have a grill?
If you can’t easily make grilled chicken, there are a few things you can do! I love my grill pan for cooking on the stovetop but still giving it the grill like taste. I use this one. There’s also the option to buy pre cooked grilled chicken at the store and cutting it up for this!
