MY WIFE WAS THE BRAINS BEHIND THIS OPERATION.

Yes. Yes, I said it. My wife thought this one up all on her own. GENIUS! This is why I love her. Well, one of the many reasons. Sometimes she thinks of these creations in her head, or sees them somewhere, and that’s when I get the question… “Baaaaaabe? Can you make me thisssssss?” You bet your butt I can…

So this time it was pizza. She wanted pizza. PERFECT. I ALWAYS WANT PIZZA. Chicken? Bacon? Ranch? Dude, what? Avocado? Say no more… California Chicken Bacon Ranch Flatbread - Comin’ right up.

Before I give you guys another “easiest recipe of your life,” I figured I could break down the process a little. I like my chicken to be seasoned to perfection, and properly cooked. No one likes dry chicken, especially not my wife. I will completely dry the chicken cutlet (or breast) with a paper towel. If it’s super thick, pound it out, man. Tenderize that bird! I season the entire thing with pepper and salt before putting it onto a medium hot cast-iron skillet. I let the breast completely cool when I know it’s going back into the oven. Just don’t let it dry out! Two things: don’t under cook and don't over cook. Get a thermometer if you need to.. You got this…
