Fennel & Chicken Flatbread

Here's an easy, new take on pizza: pita rounds that hold a fennel and chicken saute and that are then baked until the cheesy topping melts. Although great warm, they're just like pizza: a fabulous lunch out of the fridge the next day.

Serves 4

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 bulb fennel, quartered, cored and thinly sliced, plus 1 tablespoon chopped feathery tops for garnish
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, very thinly sliced crosswise
  • 4 6-1/2-inch whole-wheat pitas, or eight 4-inch whole-wheat pitas
  • 1 cup shredded provolone cheese
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 500°F.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add fennel and bell pepper and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add chicken and cook another 5 minutes, stirring often, until the vegetables are tender and the chicken is cooked through.

Step 3

Place pitas on a baking sheet and top each with an equal portion of the chicken and vegetable mixture; sprinkle with cheese and pepper. Bake until the cheese melts and turns golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped fennel tops and serve warm.
