Grilled Buffalo Chicken and Vidalia® Flatbread Salad

Ingredients

1 medium Vidalia® onion
5 Tbsp. Buffalo Wing Sauce, divided
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (1/2 lb. total)
1 tsp. olive oil
1 pre-baked flatbread pizza crust, about 6 oz.
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 cups salad greens
1 carrot, peeled and then shredded using a potato peeler
1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
4 Tbsp. ranch dressing


Instructions

Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Trim the ends off of the Vidalia® sweet onion and peel it. Slice onion into three thick slices. Keep rings intact. Brush onion slices with 1 tablespoon wing sauce. Brush each chicken breast with 1 tablespoon wing sauce.

Grill the three onion slices and the chicken breasts over direct heat until chicken is cooked through and onion slices are blackened, about 12-15 minutes. Do not turn off grill.

Use the remaining 2 tablespoons of wing sauce to brush the chicken and onions again after cooking, making sure to use a new brush to avoid cross-contamination. Cover with foil to keep warm.

Oil one side of the flatbread with ½ teaspoon of olive oil. Put flatbread oil-side-down on the grill. Top with ¼ cup cheese. Grill just until bottom is starting to brown and cheese is melted, 3-4 minutes.

Slice chicken into ½ inch slices. Separate onion slices into rings, discarding outer rings if they are very black. Top flatbread with salad greens, carrot, celery, ranch dressing, chicken, and onion rings.
