Grilled BBQ Chicken Flatbread
2 flatbreads, store bought*
1 red onion, sliced (about 1 cup)
Pinch of black pepper
12 ounces boneless chicken breast
1/4 cup barbeque sauce*
1 T. pineapple juice
1/4 cup chopped pineapple, packed in juice
1/4 cup Monterey Jack
2 slices Canadian bacon, chopped
Preheat the grill to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the onions and peppers on a large sheet of heavy-duty foil, pre-spray foil with nonstick spray, then sprinkle on the black pepper (use red pepper for a spicier version). Coat both sides of chicken with cooking spray.
Transfer chicken and vegetables to the grill. Cook the chicken 3-4 minutes per side, until the inside reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove chicken and veggies from the grill, then lower the heat to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Transfer chicken to a clean cutting board and cut into bite-sized pieces. Add the grilled veggies, barbecue sauce, and pineapple juice to a blender and pulse until it forms a chunky sauce.
Place thee flatbreads on a pizza stone, pizza screen or the bottom of a baking sheet prepped with nonstick spray. Spread 1/2 cup sauce on each flatbread and top with chicken, cheese, pineapple, and Canadian bacon and place on the grill. Close the lid and cook for 8-10 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
Remove from heat. Cool slightly before slicing.
* Choose naan bread, tortillas, or Boboli pizza bead for your crust.
* Choose a store bought barbecue sauce that is low in sugar salt.
