Mexican Chicken Flatbread

Panera Bread Recipe

Serves 4

4 chicken breast cutlets 
1 teaspoon Mexican chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 naan style flatbreads
1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and mashed
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
juice of 1/2 lime
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
2 cups shredded pepper jack cheese (optional)
4 scallions, chopped
1 ripe tomato, thinly sliced
1 cup shredded iceberg or romaine lettuce

Heat a grill, broiler, or grill pan to medium. Season the chicken all over with the chili powder, cumin, oregano, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Coat the cutlets with cooking spray, and then grill, broil, or sear them until browned on both sides and the juices run clear, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove the chicken to a cutting board, let it cool slightly, and slice each cutlet into three or four pieces.

Place the flatbreads on the grill, under the broiler, or in a single layer in the pan and cook on medium until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes per side.

In a small bowl, combine the avocado, mayonnaise, lime juice, cilantro, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Spread the mixture all over the bubbly side of the warm flatbreads. On one half of each spread bread, arrange the chicken, cheese (if using), scallions, tomato, and lettuce. Fold the other half of each flatbread over to cover the toppings, and serve.
