I’m mashing up two ethnic foods today. To start I’m using Stonefire’s Naan for the flatbread base and topping it with a Thai styled chicken salad.
Don’t be fooled by the light look of this Chicken Thai Salad Flabread, it’s full of heft and heartiness. It’s a meal, not an appetizer or side dish. And it’s takes less than 15 minutes to make—a sanity saver for those crazy busy days.
You know what it’s like, the weekday rush of trying to figure out dinner. You stare in your refrigerator—and yep, its full of food. But here’s the rub: (1) How long will it take to compose something from all the odds and ends, bits and pieces and everything else that is begging to be used (2) How many dishes will have to be wash at the end of it all (4) And, the worst one, but so true—can I blog it, because that’s how multi-tasking goes.
But the other night, everything came together easily, I bypassed the no-knead pizza crust for some of Stonefire’s Naan Bread because convenience paired with them being awesome tasting trumped dirtying up a mixing bowl, wiping down a floured countertop, dishwashing was reduced to a cutting board and knife (admittedly, I made everyone eat on paper plates-ha!).
Now here’s the thing with these Stonefire Naan bread, its hand stretched, made with the freshest ingredients and baked with extremely high heat so the big bubbles, airy texture and smoky flavor is what makes it standout. It’s also what makes it a top quality canvas for endless 15 minute meals—go ahead . . . get creative and start composing your meal.

Taylor @ Food Faith Fitness says
YES! I always order Larb Gai when we go out for Thai…so the fact that these are on my favorite Naan breads is AMAZING! And the colors here are insanely gorg! Pinned!
I love using naan for flatbreads. This is just lovely! The colors really make this a standout dish. The Stonefire Naan bread looks fantastic, I need to pick some up!
I have to say, I’ve never heard of Larb chicken, and I love Thai food. I have to agree, that stoneware naan bread is amazing. It tastes so fresh and homemade, it instantly ads great flavor (and a great shortcut) to any dish! So I have to admit, I’m a little scared of fish sauce. I’ve been putting off cooking with it because the name sounds so unappealing. What is the taste/texture like? My guess is it’s an irreplaceable ingredient in this dish and most other Thai dishes.
I am forever staring in my fridge for inspiration. Usually, I pick something that will take 30 minutes or less that will produce minimal dishes. This flatbread is absolute perfection. Pinned.
Store bought naan is such a life saver somedays. These flatbreads look amazing! Love all the flavors here, Naomi!
This is almost too pretty to eat, but I love the flavors so much that it would be gone in seconds! 🙂
This is so gorgeous Naomi! I love the flavors of this.
I know what I am making for dinner tonight! Looks delicious!

We have a regular supply of the Stonefire naan (the whole wheat variety) in our pantry and freezer at all times. It’s so handy to have an on hand for quick meals. And Thai chicken pizza is one of our favorites. Your flatbread salad is gorgeous!
