creamy garlic, spinach and chicken flatbread

creamy garlic, spinach and chicken flatbreadI was recently selected to take part in creating a recipe for a new line of sauces that Progresso recently launched. My assignment? Something quick to prepare.. as in 20 minutes or less.

They must have known that I would have some busy afternoons and evenings ahead of me…because there were quite a few 20 minute meals birthed from this sauce. My favorite, however were these flat breads I whipped up.

The time investment? 10 minutes. MAX. 🙂

As most of y’all know… I am a homemade sauce kind of girl, and I seldom go for the convenience foods.. but, I do keep several convenience soups and snacks on hand for occasions like hurricanes and late nights at work.

This sauce however… will probable be making a few more appearances aside from late nights and hurricanes.

Mainly, it tastes homemade, has rich flavor and none of the canned taste that sometimes comes with convenience foods.Maybe because it’s in a pouch? Hmmmm….

_DSC1139I started with the creamy roasted garlic sauce, and added 1 cup of chopped (previously frozen/thawed/drained) spinach..

creamy garlic spinach, chicken flatbreadI topped it with cooked diced chicken, a few cherry tomatoes and a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese. I had mushrooms to add… but realized I forgot them afterward.. but that may have pushed the time to 12 minutes… 🙂
