Fennel & Chicken Flatbread

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/fennel_chicken_flatbread.html

From EatingWell:  August/September 2005, EatingWell Serves Two, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

Here's an easy, new take on pizza: pita rounds that hold a fennel and chicken saute and that are then baked until the cheesy topping melts. Although great warm, they're just like pizza: a fabulous lunch out of the fridge the next day.

4 servings | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 500°F.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add fennel and bell pepper and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add chicken and cook another 5 minutes, stirring often, until the vegetables are tender and the chicken is cooked through.
  3. Place pitas on a baking sheet and top each with an equal portion of the chicken and vegetable mixture; sprinkle with cheese and pepper. Bake until the cheese melts and turns golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped fennel tops and serve warm.
