Hostess Appreciation Brunch

This past weekend I held my Annual Hostess Appreciation Brunch – I love to say thank you to my Hostesses with a little pampering and a special project. After all I couldn’t do this without you!

Today I wanted to share with you a couple of pictures from the Brunch.

This first picture is of the brunch table.

I made one of my newest favorite recipes – Greek Chicken & Artichoke Flatbread. It’s so easy to put together and yummy I thought I would share the recipe with you.

Greek Chicken & Artichoke Flatbread

1 pkg. (11 or 13.8 oz.) refrigerated thin crust pizza crust

1 1/2 c. fresh parsley leaves, divided

2 garlic cloves, peeled

1 tsp. lemon zest

1 jar (12) marinated artichokes, drained

1 tbsp. olive oil

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

4 oz. feta cheese, divided

8 oz. mozzarella cheese, grated

2 c. diced cooked chicken breast

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush large bar pan with oil. Unroll pizza crust onto pan and press to edges. Bake on lowest oven rack 17-20 minutes or until top is golden brown.

Coarsely process 1/2 c. parsley in food processor, remove and set aside for garnish. Add remaining parsley and garlic to processor; process until finely chopped.

Add lemon zest, artichokes, olive oil, salt, pepper, and half of the feta to processor; process until coarsely chopped.

Combine half of the mozzarella, artichoke mixture and chicken; mix well. Microwave, uncovered, on High 1 – 2 minutes or until hot, stirring once.

Sprinkle cooling crust with remaining mozzarella. Top with chicken mixture; spread to edges. Cut flatbread into 16 squares. Crumble remaining feta over top and sprinkle with reserved parsley. Serve.

And here is another of Shirley working on her project.

  1. You do such a wonderful job for your hostesses! They are lucky to have you. And thanks for sharing the recipe. Sounds yummy! I’ll have to ask my husband to make it for us!

  2. Thanks Anna. Hope you’ll enjoy the recipe. I really like it since it’s good cold or warm – lots of flavor! That’s a biggie when you’re counting carbs. LOL Let me know how you’re family likes it.
