Why Make Buffalo Chicken Flatbread

I am a huge sucker for flatbreads, they are the easiest elevated lunch or light dinner to whip up. They are customizable and the flavor combinations are endless, like Mediterranean Flatbread or even BBQ Chicken Flatbread. ALL of them are delicious and my husband requests them weekly.

This flatbread has a wonderful tang to it with buffalo sauce. You can use optional ranch drizzle for an extra saucy meal or skip it and enjoy it without, dairy free. This is a perfect meal for prepping or to make ahead, it keeps well and it warms up great. Another meal to try is my Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken

Make your own flavorful chicken or you can use rotisserie and cut down 15 minutes of the cooking time!

Ingredients Needed

Ingredients needed on small plates and bowls on a grey counter.

Chicken Breasts. Use high quality chicken breasts or you can cut the time down and use already cooked chicken or rotisserie chicken.

Seasonings. salt, pepper, oregano, red pepper flakes.

Flatbread. You can find flatbread in the bakery section or in the bread aisle at most all grocery stores. Naan will also work, or you can use Lavish bread (which has the least calories).

Buffalo Sauce. Use a thick, high quality buffalo sauce. This is the one I use. If you love buffalo sauce, try these Boneless Chicken Wings

Ranch. This is optional for an extra saucy punch on the flatbread. Use any ranch you love most! You can also make your own with a ranch packet if preferred.

All other ingredients and measurements are listed below in the recipe card.

Recipe Variations

Chicken. You can use rotisserie or precooked chicken. Chicken thighs will also work.

Buffalo Sauce. Use any you prefer. Barbecue sauce will also work in place of the buffalo.

Bell Pepper. Use any color bell pepper or you can use mini peppers as well. Jalapeño will also work great.

Cilantro. I love the flavor cilantro brings as a garnish. you can use parsley in place or just use the green onions for garnish.

Mozzarella. Use dairy free mozzarella to make this meal dairy free.

Flatbread. You can use Naan or Lavish bread in place.

Steps To Make This Recipe

Steps to make this recipe on a grey skillet and on a cooking sheet.

Step One. Pat the chicken dry if making your own. If you are using rotisserie chicken skip to step two. Cut the chicken breasts into small, bite sized pieces. Heat 1 tsp oil in a large skillet or pan on medium/high heat. Season chicken with salt, pepper, oregano. Cook for about 14-16 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Step Two. Preheat oven to 375º. On a cooking sheet, layer the flatbread with buffalo sauce, evenly spread it with the back of a spoon or brush. Sprinkle minced garlic over sauce, top with mozzarella, chopped peppers, sliced onions and chicken

Step Three. Cook on center rack for about 10-15 minutes or until the flatbread is browned and cheese is melted and bubbling.

Step Four. Let the flatbread cool for a bit, sprinkle with chopped green onions and cilantro. Drizzle ranch and extra buffalo sauce (if desired) and enjoy!

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days, or freeze in an airtight bag for up to 2 months. Reheat in the microwave or air fryer.

Recipe FAQs

Where can I find Flatbread or Naan?

You can find flatbread or naan and lavish these in the baker sections or in the bread aisle of your local grocery store.

Can I make this dairy free?

Ye! Make dairy free buffalo chicken flatbread by skipping the ranch and using a dairy free Mozzarella. Also check the buffalo sauce for dairy, sometimes they sneak it in.

Is this good for meal prep?

This flatbread is great for meal prepping or making ahead of time. It keeps well in the fridge and in the freezer.

How can I make this healthier?

Cut the calories and make a healthier buffalo chicken flatbread by using lavish or a low calorie flatbread. Skip the ranch if you want to cut some calories, and use a little less Mozzarella.

Recipe Tips

Don’t over load the flatbread. If you overload it too much it can get soggy in the middle.

If the flatbread is large or if you use lavish feel free to cut it in half to help crisp it all up better in the oven.

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Recipe Pairings

This flatbread is great on it’s own but paired with Spicy Cucumber Salad or Greek Cucumber Salad it’s great. My Lemon Kale Caesar Salad would also pair wonderfully.

    You have the BEST flatbread recipes. This was so good. I used primal kitchen buffalo sauce, it’s thick and creamy. Can’t wait for leftovers tomorrow.
