BBQ Chicken & Pineapple Flatbreads with Caramelized & Pickled Onions

BBQ Chicken & Pineapple Flatbreads with Caramelized & Pickled Onions

Sweet and savory is a combo we can always get behind (for dinner, dessert, and even snacks—hello, chocolate-covered potato chips). Here, these flatbreads have it all: a layer of tangy-sweet BBQ sauce, piles of caramelized and pickled onions, long green pepper, and juicy, lightly charred pineapple. Don’t worry, we didn’t forget the cheese! Melty mozzarella and Monterey Jack provide the ultimate cheese pull.

Serves2CourseDinnerCook35 minsTotal Time35 minsDifficultyEasy
  • 1 unit Red Onion
  • 4 ounce Pineapple
  • 5 teaspoon Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 unit Long Green Pepper
  • 4 ounce Fresh Mozzarella(Contains Milk)
  • ¼ ounce Cilantro
  • 2 unit Flatbreads(Contains Sesame, Wheat)
  • 4 tablespoon BBQ Sauce
  • ¼ cup Monterey Jack Cheese(Contains Milk)
  • 10 ounce Chopped Chicken Breast
  • 5 teaspoon Cooking Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  1. Place a foil-lined baking sheet on top rack (for 4 servings, use 2 foil-lined sheets on top and middle racks) and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry produce.
  2. Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion. Drain pineapple over a small bowl, reserving juice. Stir ¼ of the onion, half the vinegar (you’ll use the rest later), and a pinch of salt into bowl with juice. Set aside.
  3. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add remaining onion, cook, stirring and adding splashes of water as needed to prevent sticking, until softened, 6-8 minutes. While onion cooks, rinse shrimp under cold water. Pat shrimp or chicken dry with paper towels, season all over with salt and pepper. Heat a drizzle of oil in a separate large pan over medium heat. Add shrimp or chicken in a single layer, cook, stirring occasionally, until cooked through, 3-5 minutes for shrimp or 4-6 minutes for chicken.
  4. While onion cooks, halve, core, and very thinly slice green pepper into strips. Toss in a second small bowl with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Dice mozzarella into ½-inch pieces. Finely chop cilantro.
  5. Once cooked onion is softened, increase heat under pan to medium high. Add pineapple and a drizzle of oil, cook, stirring, until pineapple is lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.
  6. Stir in remaining vinegar. Cook, stirring, until onion and pineapple are caramelized and jammy, 1-2 minutes more. Turn off heat and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Brush or rub each flatbread with a drizzle of oil. Carefully remove prepared baking sheet from oven, place flatbreads on sheet. (For 4 servings, divide flatbreads between prepared sheets.)
  8. Evenly spread flatbreads with BBQ sauce, then top with caramelized onion and pineapple, green pepper, Monterey Jack, and mozzarella. Top flatbreads with shrimp or chicken along with mozzarella.
  9. Return flatbreads to top rack until cheese melts and edges are golden brown, 10-12 minutes. (For 4 servings, return to top and middle racks, swap rack positions halfway through baking.)
  10. Transfer flatbreads to a cutting board and top with cilantro and pickled onion (draining first) to taste. Cut into pieces, divide between plates, and serve. Chicken is fully cooked when internal temperature reaches 165°.
