This was the BEST SANDWICH EVER! Everything from the bread to the chicken and marinara sauce hit all of my taste buds beautifully! As I am eating this sandwich I am reminded that I have given up NOTHING of value since going grain and sugar-free 10 months ago. With a little bit of creativity, I have re-made all of my favorite foods! Life is good!
This flatbread is pretty easy. The only key is to get it even when you press it out. You can use a rolling pin to do this. Just put the dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper before you start. This will create a very sturdy bread for this Chicken Parmesan sandwich. Use this “bread” for a thin crust pizza as well.
Chicken Parmesan on Herbed Flatbread
3 tbsp coconut flour (I use Tropical Traditions or Bob’s Red Mill)
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup sour cream (or cream or coconut milk)
1 pastured egg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper (not wax paper). Mix dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, blend butter, sour cream and egg. Stir in cheese and then add to dry ingredients. Mix well until dough forms. Divide dough into 4 parts.
2 Chicken breast, split in half
Salt/pepper or favorite seasoning blend
3 tbsp butter or coconut oil for pan
Mozzarella (or other Cheese) (melted)
Heat a large frying pan. Season both sides of chicken breast generously with salt/pepper or your favorite seasoning blend. Add melted butter to pan. Sear chicken breast 3-4 minutes on each side or until done.
28 oz of whole tomatoes
28 oz can of diced tomatoes
3 tbsp chopped garlic
10-12 large basil leaves (or 2 tbsp of dried)
1/2 tbsp dried thyme
1 tbsp onion powder
1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes
Sweeten to taste
Add all ingredients to large pot. Use immersion blender and blend until your desired consistency. Cook on medium-low, covered for at least 15 minutes. Taste for sweetness and adjust if needed.
Cut flatbread in half. Place a few tablespoons of marinara sauce on bread. Top with chicken breast and more marinara. Finish off with Mozzarella (I actually used sharp cheddar and placed the cheese in microwave long enough for it to melt and then poured it over the chicken). Top with other piece of flat bread. Now the important part, Eat and enjoy!
