Pick up a rotisserie chicken and assemble this hearty sandwich for a quick and easy weeknight meal.
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 cups prechopped hearts of romaine lettuce
1 1/2 cups shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast
3/4 cup (3 ounces) fresh mozzarella cheese, chopped
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, torn
1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
4 (2.8-ounce) multigrain flatbreads (such as Flatout)
1 large garlic clove, halved
How to Make It
Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add lettuce and next 4 ingredients (through tomatoes), tossing to coat.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Working with 1 flatbread at a time, cook bread 1 minute on each side or until toasted. Rub 1 side of each flatbread with cut sides of garlic. Arrange 1 1/2 cups chicken mixture in the center of each flatbread; roll up.

Balsamic vinegar with EVOO is more caprese style. I chop the garlic and added it to the dressing. Also used thinly sliced red onion for some kick. For two people, save one half of the dressing in the fridge to use the next night. Flatbreads work better than the round wraps that I tried.
Very refreshing for dinner on a hot night. After reading the other reviews, I opted to use just balsamic vinegar. I also minced the garlic and added it to the dressing instead of rubbing it on the flatbread. We did have the leftovers for lunch the next day but this wasn't as good as the lettuce was pretty soggy. Next time, I'll keep the dressing separate and use it on a per-serving basis. Will definitely make again!
So happy I tried this. I made a variation with what I had on hand. I cooked a chicken fillet with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar before finely chopping it instead of using rotisserie. I used a half of a whole wheat pita & finely chopped a little piece of string cheese for the mozzarella. I used Balsamic vinegar instead of white wine. I was worried because I modified so much! Surprisingly, it was outstanding. About half the mixture fit into my pocket sandwich & I ate the rest as a side salad. Yum. Making it again for lunch this week.
I added diced red onions and red peppers and a tbsp of balsamic vinegar. I also used almost the entire rotisserie chicken (so was more chicken heavy). Very refreshing and summery! Also would be good, I think, with diced cucumbers.
