My Big Fat Chicken Greek Salad Flatbread is an amazing combination of flavors your family will love.
I will never forget the first time I watched the original My Big Fat Greek Wedding. All I could think is… this movie should be My Big Fat Portuguese Wedding. I laughed and laughed and could relate to so many parts. Growing up, we spoke a different language at home and we cooked weird (to Americans) things.
When my second grade teacher asked the class what the strangest thing they had ever eaten. My answer left the class aghast and me wondering if I should have kept the answer to myself. I knew that eating fish eyes was a little strange but I am not sure that I realized just how strange until I saw the reaction from the class. At that moment, I knew my life was different and what was normal in our home, was not normal to every American.
If you have followed me for a while, you know that any time the question of favorite movie featuring food comes up, there is only one answer. My Big Fat Greek Wedding! The bundt cake, the lamb and so many funny moments. I couldn’t be more excited for the sequel.
The funny thing is that when it came time to create a recipe, I drew a blank. How could this be? One of our Sunday Supper Tastemakers reminded me that I couldn’t go wrong with Greek inspired flatbread. After all, I am known a the Flatbread Queen. Aha! I adore a great Greek Salad and I was excited to try this tasty Greek Salad Flatbread.
The question became… to add potato salad or not. In our area, potato salad on a Greek Salad is common, some would say required. I realize that is not the case everywhere but I encourage you to try it. It is really, really good. I have tried this flatbread with and without and while I prefer it with the potato salad. Don’t sweat it if you don’t have it. The combination of flavors is amazing all on it’s own.
Another fun thing to do with Chicken Greek Salad Flatbread is to make a flatbread bar and let everyone add their own toppings. This is a big hit when we have friends over for a get together.
