Panera Flatbread: BBQ Chicken Flatbread Sandwich Panera Copycat!

If you like Panera Flatbread recipes, you’ll love these ones as well:

While I was at a blog conference I was talking to my sister and her blog partner about recipes that I had been trying out and brainstorming for my next recipe for Krusteaz.  I had been trying multiple recipes and just hadn’t found one yet that I just loved and that was good enough to be on their website. It had to be one of my best yet!
 
I wanted to know what type of recipes they are looking for in their home! Most moms are looking for easy dinners that the entire family can enjoy. It’s not ideal to make two dinners — one for adults, and one for kids! This recipe is perfect to make for everyone and nobody will be disappointed.

Why the Panera Flatbread

I wanted to make something a little different than the usual flatbread recipe because I feel like that is really simple to make. Mallory reminded me on the yummy BBQ chicken flatbread sandwich that Panera had and how much she loved it. I went home from that conference and went straight to my kitchen and began trying to create the perfect copycat recipe using Krusteaz flatbread mixes. And this recipe just hit the nail on the head, super yummy!
 
If you have never been to Panera and tried their flatbread sandwiches they are super delicious and perfect for lunch or dinner! My personal favorite is their BBQ chicken flatbread sandwich because all of the flavors fit together perfectly. Prepare them for your next meal and save some money. This recipe can easily be made at your home and doesn’t require a ridiculous amount of ingredients!
