Copycat Lean Cuisine Chicken Ranch Club Flatbread Melt

Happy 2020!!! We all know that a bunch of us are starting off the new year with high hopes of weight loss and monetary abundance! Well - I can't help with the money - but I can try to help with the weight loss! 

I'm a big fan of Intermittent Fasting. I lost 50 pounds in 2019 doing it and I'm starting back up in 2020! On top of that - I'm going to share some great healthy recipes - including a few copycat Lean Cuisine recipes!

Lean Cuisine makes a ton of delicious light and healthy frozen meals and the Chicken Ranch Club Flatbread Melt is my #1 favorite! Soft and fluffy flatbread topped with white meat chicken, bacon, cheese and ranch - hell yeah! 

The tricky thing about creating a copycat of a well-known "light" recipe is that I can't just throw the best and tastiest ingredients in there - I need to think about the nutritional element! I like the Chicken Ranch Club Flatbread because it's simple ingredients and I could go with "whole foods" for the most part. 

I came in REALLY close to the nutritional levels! Same calories, a little higher fat, double the fiber, 50% more protein and nearly half the carbs! I'm good with that!!! (Full nutrition in the recipe.) 

How do you make the Lean Cuisine 

Chicken Ranch Club Flatbread Melt? 

- Flatbread - I'm super picky on flatbread - especially for this - I knew it had to be soft and healthy. I spent a few extra calories on the Kontos brand which actually added protein!
- White meat chicken - I chose the Oscar Mayer pre-cooked grilled chicken strips
- Bacon - I eat a lot of bacon and have recently become addicted to making air fryer bacon! I took a couple of slices of bacon - 1 slice for dogs, 1 slice for flatbreads! You'll see too - my bacon is much better than the one on the Lean Cuisine version!
- Tomato - that's easy - 1/2 diced tomato 
- Cheese - I know Lean Cuisine had yellow and white cheese - I kept it simple by just using one wheel of Babybel cheese. You could save more fat/calories by using their Light Babybel
- Ranch - lastly - a dab of fat free or low-cal ranch  

I promise you will LOVE this copycat Lean Cuisine recipe - it's so much better than the original. And it takes about the same time to make - even in the oven! Using pre-cooked ingredients helps it go together quickly so you still have a quick lunch option! 

I've got you covered with other healthy lunch ideas! Here are some great ideas for Healthy Packed Lunches! This Zero Point Turkey Chili is also great - it's something you can make on a weekend and then pack during the week!  Lastly - these air fryer fish tacos are so delicious - and you know if the air fryer is in play - it's quick!!!
