Grilled Chicken Flatbreads with Hummus and Feta

Grilled Chicken Flatbreads with Hummus and Feta 
Sweets Life readers, let me introduce you to my new favorite meal. When I saw the recipe in Better Homes and Gardens magazine, I knew it was right up my alley, but I had no idea how head over heels I’d fall for it! This will definitely be a regular occurrence on our table this summer!

This is reminiscent of a chicken gyro, piled high with cucumbers, tomatoes, and feta, but the addition of the garlic hummus made it something truly special. You can make this as easy or as complicated as you wish. I didn’t make homemade hummus, but I did go the extra step and make our own flatbreads. That being said, you could easily pick up pitas or naan or a store-bought flatbread to keep things simple. I do recommend grilling whatever you use for maximum flavor.

The combination of tastes and textures here is spot-on. This is actually a great meal for entertaining…simply put out bowls of the various ingredients and let people create their own. You can also add roasted red peppers or olives to the mix!

1. Sprinkle chicken with seasoning and grill until cooked through. Set aside to cool slightly, and cut into thin slices.
2. Brush flatbreads with olive oil (sprinkle with seasonings, if desired) and grill until browned.
