BBQ Chicken Flatbreads for Backyard Dinners

Grilling Up Flavor-Packed Flatbreads for Alfresco Feasting

Ah, summertime. The season of backyard barbecues, pool parties, and all things grilled to perfection. And let me tell you, I’ve got the ultimate recipe to elevate your alfresco dining experience: BBQ Chicken Flatbreads.

You see, I’m no stranger to the joys of outdoor entertaining. In fact, you could say it’s one of my greatest passions. Hosting friends and family for a laidback yet lively gathering under the stars is truly my jam. And when it comes to the menu, I’m all about finding that sweet spot between easy and elevated.

Enter these incredible BBQ chicken flatbreads. Inspired by one of my all-time favorite dishes from California Pizza Kitchen (seriously, that place is a slice of heaven), this homemade version is the perfect centerpiece for any backyard bash. Loaded with juicy grilled chicken, smoky barbecue sauce, and a rainbow of fresh veggies, each bite is an explosion of flavors that’ll have your guests coming back for more.

Elevating the Backyard Bash

Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Flatbreads for a crowd? Isn’t that a lot of work?” Fear not, my friends, because this recipe is as easy as it is delicious. By using pre-made flatbread as the base, you can have these babies grilled up and ready to serve in no time flat.

One of my favorite places to get totally amazing pizza is California Pizza Kitchen, and their BBQ chicken flatbread was always one of my go-to orders. But you know what they say – imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. So I decided to take that beloved flavor profile and put my own spin on it.

The result? A mouthwatering masterpiece that’s sure to be the talk of your backyard bash. Imagine tender grilled chicken, smothered in a tangy-sweet barbecue sauce, and piled high on a crispy flatbread crust. Now add in a rainbow of fresh veggies – think zucchini, red onion, and vibrant bell peppers – and you’ve got a dish that’s not only delicious but downright stunning.

Elevating the Occasion with Diamond Collection Wines

Of course, no backyard party is complete without the perfect beverages to pair. And let me tell you, these Coppola Diamond Collection cans are the ultimate companions for our BBQ chicken flatbreads.

I’m talking crisp, bright whites that perfectly complement the bold flavors of the dish. Whether you go for the Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, or Sauvignon Blanc, these premium wines are the ideal refreshment for a hot summer day. And the convenience of the cans? Genius. We just iced them down in a big ol’ bucket, and they were perfectly chilled and ready to enjoy as soon as we headed outside.

Absolutely fantastic! As one of my friends raved, “Made this numerous times with naan bread and leftover cooked chicken. Great as an appetizer!” And you know what? I couldn’t agree more. These flatbreads are the perfect bite-sized bites for a crowd, and they pair oh-so-beautifully with the Coppola Diamond Collection wines.

Bringing the Backyard to Life

Now, let’s talk about the actual assembly of these bad boys. It’s as easy as firing up the grill and letting the magic happen. I like to only light one side of the grill, then place the flatbreads on the unlit side so they can get all nice and crispy without burning. And if you don’t have a grill, no worries – you can easily make these in the oven too.

Just preheat to 450°F, place a baking sheet or pizza stone inside, and assemble the flatbreads right on top. Bake for 4-8 minutes, until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted. Boom, done!

As for the toppings, the possibilities are endless. I love the classic combo of barbecue chicken, zucchini, red onion, and bell peppers, but you can absolutely get creative and use whatever veggies you’ve got on hand. Heck, you could even skip the veggies altogether if that’s more your style. The key is to let the smoky, tangy barbecue chicken shine.

So there you have it, my friends – the ultimate backyard bash centerpiece. These BBQ chicken flatbreads are the perfect blend of easy and elevated, and when paired with those refreshing Coppola Diamond Collection wines, you’ve got a winning combination that’s sure to impress. Gather your crew, fire up the grill, and get ready to serve up a summer soiree that’ll have everyone coming back for more.
