Honey Chipotle Chicken Flatbread

Do you know what today is? Well, it is two things actually. Registered Dietitian Day and Pi Day! So to celebrate all my wonderful dietitian friends and colleagues, I wanted to share this recipe for a special "pizza" pie, my Honey Chipotle Chicken Flatbread that I created for my client, Bush's Beans, using their Honey Chipotle Grillin' Beans.

There's not many things more popular to cook for a weeknight meal than chicken. It's easy to make, it's healthy, and it's pretty family friendly as most kids and adults like it. However, if I am honest, when I think of chicken, I often think, "Boring!."

Recipe: Chicken Cordon Bleu

Chicken Cordon Bleu is one of those dishes that you want to serve to company because everyone seems to love it, and it has that fancy feel. It is also surprisingly simple to make. The only problem is that traditional versions are typically loaded with calories.
