2 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
2 whole pieces of naan bread
4 Tbsp basil pesto sauce, prepared
lb brie cheese, sliced
1 red pepper, seeded, roasted and peeled
1 cup baby spinach
1 pear, peeled and sliced
1 onion, large, peeled, cut in half, sliced lengthwise
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
12 basil leaves, fresh
cup chicken broth, low sodium
2 Tbsp olive oil

Serving size: 4
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes

  1. Heat oil in skillet.
  2. Place chicken breasts in skillet and brown on both sides.
  3. Once browned, add chicken broth and cover to poach until cooked through and internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
  4. While chicken is cooking, heat 1 Tbsp (15 mL) of olive oil in another skillet. Add onions and balsamic vinegar. Caramelize onions by cooking over medium to medium high heat and constantly stirring. Once onions are almost cooked as desired, add sliced pears to pan and caramelize slightly with onions.
  5. Place chicken breasts on cutting board and let cool very slightly. Slice chicken breasts into thick strips against the grain.
  6. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C).
  7. Assemble flat bread by spreading 2 Tbsp (30 mL) of pesto sauce on each piece of naan bread. Top with baby spinach, basil leaves, roasted red pepper, chicken, onion and pear mixture and slices of brie cheese.
  8. Place on baking sheet and cook in oven until cheese melts slightly.
  9. Cut and serve immediately.
