Between the sweet crunch of the fresh spinach leaves, the intense flavor of the sun-dried tomatoes, and extremely juicy marinated chicken in this sandwich, it’s pretty hard to beat. 

Be sure to make a BIG batch of chicken for this recipe (along with a big batch of the ranch dressing) because this is gonna go quick! In our house, everyone loved it. Parent and toddler approved, and that’s a big win-win!

Actually, my toddler gobbled this up so quickly that I had to pick out the chicken from my sandwich to give it to him. 

Next time we have this, we will be adding some fresh basil from the garden. Yum!

  2. These look great! I LIVE for summertime, and my kids and I are obsessed with picnicking outside. We’ll eat anything outside, as long as it’s a nice day 🙂

  3. Wow, this flatbread sandwich looks amazing, Amie! We love picnics in the summertime. Some of our must-haves are fresh fruit and salads, our favorite being potato salad. I really like your use of flatbread instead of regular sandwich bread too! I just learned how to make homemade pita bread so I know this would be a delicious use for it. I’ve made homemade ranch in the past and it is the best! It’s hard to go back to bottled ranch after knowing how flavorful it can be when you make it from scratch! This sandwich just looks like the yummiest combo..will definitely have to give it a try soon!

  4. This looks SO amazing! I try and switch up my lunch and dinner recipes so I will definitely be trying this! Yum!
