For the spicy garlic oil:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons red chili flakes

For the flatbreads:

  • 6 mini naan
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup cooked chopped chicken
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon parsley flakes


To make the spicy garlic oil:

  • Smash the garlic cloves to remove the papery shell. Leave the cloves mostly intact.
  • Add the oil, garlic, and chili flakes to a small saucepan over medium heat.
  • Cook for 5 minutes or until garlic just begins to brown.
  • Remove from heat and let cool for one hour.

To make the flatbreads:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place the naan on a large baking sheet.
  • Spread each naan with enough garlic oil to coat the tops.
  • Sprinkle each naan with the mozzarella cheese, top with the chicken, and sprinkle the chopped garlic evenly between each naan. Top with the parsley.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
  • Serve immediately.
  • NOTE: Garlic infused oils do carry some risk of botulism if stored for any length of time. If you do choose to store the remaining oil, do so for up to 5 days in a sealed container in the refrigerator, be beware of the risk associated with doing so.
