MI FLATBREAD WITH INCREDIBLE SAUCES X 2

INGREDIENTS

FLATBREAD + CHICKEN:

  •  6 flatbreads or naan (homemade recipe here)
  •  1 1/2 pounds cooked chicken (grilled or rotisserie or easy stovetop cooking method here)
  •  Fresh, chopped cilantro

CREAMY SAUCE:

  •  1 cup mayonnaise or plain Greek yogurt
  •  2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  •  1 tablespoon (more or less to taste) hot sauce/sriracha or sweet Thai chili sauce
  •  1 green onion or a couple chives, finely chopped (optional)

VEGETABLE RELISH:

  •  2 large carrots, peeled and cut into thin matchsticks
  •  1 English/seedless cucumber, cut into thin matchsticks
  •  2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  •  2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  •  1 teaspoon sesame oil (can use toasted sesame oil)
  •  1/2 teaspoon coarse, kosher salt

SWEET AND SPICY HOISIN SAUCE:

  •  1/3 cup sweet Thai chili sauce
  •  1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  •  2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  •  2 tablespoons soy sauce

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. For the creamy sauce, whisk together all the ingredients. Can be made several days in advance.
  2. For the vegetable relish, place the vegetables in a bowl or container. Whisk together the sugar, vinegar, sesame oil and salt. Pour over the vegetables and toss to coat well. Can use immediately but the relish tastes best if made at least an hour before and refrigerated.
  3. For the sweet and spicy hoisin sauce, whisk together all of the ingredients. Can be made several days in advance.
  4. To assemble, lightly warm the flatbread or naan to make it more pliable and soft (if needed, totally optional depending on the bread you are using).
  5. Spread a layer of creamy sauce over the flatbread and top with chicken, vegetable relish, a drizzle of hoisin sauce and fresh cilantro (optional but tasty).

NOTES

These flatbreads are served like a room temperature sandwich (not hot/warm although you could experiment with that if desired).
Obviously the time stated in the recipe as "prep" is assuming the chicken is cooked and flatbread is made (if going the homemade route) - adjust the time expectation needed if accounting for either of those things. Leftover grilled chicken is super tasty on these (rotisserie chicken works great, too).
Also, as noted in the recipe, the relish can be used immediately, but it tastes better if made at least an hour in advance (or the day before). All of the components of this recipe can be made at least a day ahead of time.
