Tomato Pesto No Carb "Flat Bread"

After my success with Mexican Chicken Dip, the canned chicken was once again forgotten in my pantry.  There just had to be something else I could do with it right?

Maybe you're familiar with the site- Your Lighter Side.  On this website there are kinds of low-carb recipes, probably the most famous being her oopsie rolls which I tried once but failed to whip the egg whites long enough- anyways- she has a few different uses for chicken that result in either a cracker-y or bread-y type finished product so I thought- what the hell, I'll try it!

It seemed too easy and too good to be true that by simply pulsing some chicken and cheese in a cuisi could result in something that would ultimately come out like a cracker- but it's true!

All I did was pulse a can of chicken with two slices of cheddar until crumbly, then press into a giant circle on a parchment lined baking sheet and baked at 425 for about 25 minutes.  It was crunchy and browed like flatbread!

After slathering with some organic pesto and chopped tomatoes- it was exactly like one of those yummy flatbreads I used to order.

Try it!  So easy and a great use for an otherwise forgotten food item that would probably languish in the pantry forever.  I'm looking forward to trying it again with different flavors!  I bet even some string cheese would work well and be mild enough in flavor to go pretty much any direction you wanted.
