GRILLED CHICKEN CAESAR FLATBREADS — Savory grilled chicken and Caesar salad are served up in warm flatbread in this light and easy dinner.
It’s been hot outside. Which means that lighter fare, like these Grilled Chicken Caesar Flatbreads, have been making a regular appearance on my dinner menu.
This simple, grilled meal is perfect for those days when it’s just too hot to turn on the oven. And since I’m rarely in the mood for a big meal on days like that, this is one of my favorite summer time dinners.
My kids love it too–which was a bit of a surprise. They do like chicken, and Caesar salad, and flatbread, but I wasn’t sure they’d like it all in one dish.
But they couldn’t stop raving about how good these flatbreads were.
Of course, if you do have picky eaters, you could always serve up the components of this dish separately for them. There’s something about this meal that everyone is going to love!
Even better, they chicken Caesar flatbreads are super easy to make, and use just a handful of basic ingredients, which makes this meal a big win in my book!
And even though this is a simple recipe, this dish is loaded with flavor. The chicken is marinaded in Caesar dressing for extra tenderness and flavor.
Then the flatbreads are grilled, along with the chicken, which adds even more great flavor!
I used Stonefire brand flatbreads in this recipe. They are always soft and tender and I’ve never been disappointed in any of their products. And no, I didn’t get paid to say that! I really do love them.
You could also use pita bread, naan bread, or even tortillas in this recipe and it would still be the perfect meal for a hot summer evening.
We’ll definitely be enjoying these flatbreads all summer long!

Tips for Grilling Chicken
Add flavor first: Season your chicken liberally, and well in advance of grilling, whenever possible. Brines, dry rubs and marinades are all great ways to add flavor to grilled chicken.
If you’ll be basting with barbecue sauce, wait until the last few minutes of cooking time so it doesn’t burn.
Prep your grill: Make sure you have enough fuel, then rub some oil onto clean and preheated grates right before cooking so the chicken doesn’t stick.
When is it done? Poultry should be cooked until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Check the temperature by inserting the probe of a thermometer into the thickest part of the chicken, without touching the bone.
If you don’t have a thermometer, cut into the center of the meat. The juices should run clear and the meat should no longer be pink.
