Chicken Florentine Flat Bread Pizza – This Chicken Florentine Flatbread is much easier than you think and is crazy delicious!

Chicken Florentine Flat Bread Pizza

This recipe is inspired by something I ordered at TGI Friday’s over a year ago when my husband and I took a trip down to Las Vegas for a few days with his family. I’m fairly certain that is actually the only time I’ve eaten at TGI Friday’s but I must say is was delicioussssss. I’d go back.   If I had one near me.   But I don’t. So all of you who do live near a Friday’s – have a bite for me will you? Thanks

Now let’s go back to that big fat bolded word I mentioned before. I said this recipe was inspired by something I had at TGI Friday’s. It is not a copycat recipe. Basically I ordered a flatbread I found on the appetizer menu, but I ordered it as my main dish. Am I the only one who does that? I do it all the time. I love appetizers. I’d probably rather have five appetizers every night for dinner instead of a main dish and two sides.

But this flatbread I ordered, it was mind-blowingly tasty. Like, I just craved it for weeks afterwards. All I remember is that it had florentine in the title, there was obviously flatbread involved, and there was chicken, spinach, and a touch of cheesiness. That about sums up the delicious experience that was happening in my mouth. If you could turn Italy into edible fireworks, that’s what it tasted like. An explosion of flavor from a simple dish. And that is what inspired this Chicken Florentine Flatbread recipe.

This recipe could be used as an appetizer, if that’s what you’re going for. But once you taste it, you’re not going to want whatever’s on the menu for the main course. You will want more and more and more of this flatbread until, alas, it is gone and you are stuffed like a Thanks Giving Turkey. So just save yourself the wasting of a perfectly good manicotti and make this for dinner.

Oh and I’m about to use a term I’ve never before said on this here foodie blog. But I feel it is necessary that you know this dish is man-pleasing. You would not believe the compliments I got from my husband after making this. There were oohs and awes and mmmmmmmms, all through dinner.

Here’s the thing. This recipe sounds, looks, smells, and tastes fancy but, I promise you this flat bread is a piece of cake. You can use store bought naan or flat bread which cuts out about 90 percent of the preparation time, and all you have to do is cook some chicken on the stove and pop this baby in the oven for a few minutes to get that cheese all melty. No need to pay thousands for tickets to Europe, bring the taste of Italy into your kitchen with this easy 30 minute dish!

What people are saying about this Chicken Florentine Flatbread 

“Wow! What a wonderful find this recipe is! Several times when I’ve made this, I haven’t had any tomatoes around, so I’ve just squirted on some dots of tomato paste from the tube, and that’s been a decent substitute. I’m very glad to be introduced to that flat bread too – it’s delicious on its own and a great thing to have as a “toast” substitute since I don’t normally buy bread.” – Mary 

“I made this for dinner tonight. Big hit with my husband too! Will definitely make again.” – Christina 

“Made this last night. I found flatbread on special buy at Aldi. It was great. Can’t wait to try other variations. Two things I did different were add mushrooms and use the Italian cheese bag mix.” – Chelai

Made this today to try out something pizza-ish but a little different – absolutely fantastic!! The family loved it! Used up some extra chicken, and added some bits leftover asparagus as well. Five stars! Simple but restaurant tasty.

    Fantastic! It sounds like you did a great job! Thank you for sharing your feedback!

My husband wanted this as a pizza. I wanted it as a flat bread….we did it as a pizza (insert eyeroll) really good flavor! I would definitely make this again. I made pizza dough, so while that was on the rise, I cooked my chicken. I was actually surprised at how good this was and I don’t like anything other than pepperoni!

    Such a nice wife! 😉 It sounds like you did an awesome job. Happy to hear that you guys enjoyed this recipe!

Absolutely loved this recipe! I sent this to my mom and she said it was a big hit! Bought the flatbread from the store so definitely saved some time. Will definitely recommend to everyone. This will be a recipe I make again!

    Great thinking!
