Chipotle Grilled Peach Flatbread

Chipotle Grilled Peach Flatbread

Smoky, spicy, sweet, filling- but light all at the same time.  This chipotle grilled peach flatbread is quick and simple, but still looks fancy pants.  It is inspired by a flatbread from Los Angeles that I gave a resounding kick in the pants with the chipotle vinaigrette.  I like spice, so there is quite a bit of adobo sauce in the recipe.  Feel free to adjust up or down depending on your own preference.

Ingredients

  • 2 store bought flatbreads or naan (sub gluten free if needed)
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 peaches
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 T white wine vinegar
  • 1 T adobo sauce (from canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce)
  • pinch sugar
  • 1 cup mixed greens
  • leftover rotisserie chicken
  • 2 T chopped cilantro

Instructions

  1. Soak the red onion in a small bowl of water. By the time you have done the rest of the steps, the harsh bite of the onion should have mellowed perfectly.
  2. Heat grill over medium-low heat, brush with oil, and place peaches, flesh side down on grill. Grill for a couple minutes- peaches are ready when they are soft, but not mushy. (Of course, you can do this on an outside grill as well!)
  3. While peaches are grilling, mix together the chipotle vinaigrette ingredients- oil, vinegar, adobo sauce, and pinch of sugar (you can omit the sugar if you really wish, but a pinch isn't going to kill you, and it really helps the flavors marry). Also, cut back or increase chipotle sauce per your taste.
  4. Take flatbreads, top with mixed greens, rotisserie chicken, onion, peaches, cilantro, and drizzle chipotle vinaigrette.

Vietnamese Chicken Salad


Vietnamese Chicken Salad

You are likely wondering what you should do with the leftover rotisserie chicken that is in your fridge. Yesterday was chicken, roast potatoes, and salad.  What can you eat today that will use up your leftovers without completely repeating the flavors?  If you are thinking, “Perhaps a Vietnamese Chicken Salad?” then you beat me to the punch.

This salad will likely have a comPLETEly different flavor profile than your traditional rotisserie chicken dinner.  Also, because it pulls together the sturdier vegetables, it travels pretty darn well, making it a great one to take to work- just don’t add the dressing until you are ready to eat.  I used cabbage, carrots and cucumber, but you can use whatever hardy veg is leftover in your fridge (radishes, celery, etc).

Also, cabbage- a vegetable often esteemed with disdain- is quite the Vitamin C powerhouse. Who knew?  In fact, 1 cup of shredded cabbage (as you will likely eat of this salad) will give you 40% of what your body’s Vitamin C needs that day.
