    changed it up a bit and removed the chicken, turned out beautifully.

    Easy and great tasting. I followed the recipe but used canned chicken breast. Cooking time was 9 minutes for one.

    i loved it. the only thing i did differently was put the tomatoes under the cheese and then baked it in the oven.

    Very yummy, great with shrimp as well. I had to add some more veggies to add taste.

    I liked how few dishes you need to make these, and they're very good. I ended up needing less of the chicken and cheese than was instructed but those are easy to just put in other recipes so it wasn't a big deal at all.

    This was very easy to make and delicious! I added mushrooms and red pepper flakes and left the tomatoes off as well. I agree with other reviewers, put it in for nine minutes for a softer flatbread like feel!
    It was good, not amazing. It was quick to make and very filling so that was awesome. Cook time given is too long though, I would cook for 9 mins

    To be honest it’s a bit bland but it’s quick and very easy to make. I used vegan cheese as my husband is lactose intolerant, takes about 13 minutes in the oven. Really fills you up but probably will tweak the recipe next time

    pretty good, kids liked it and that's saying something. I think the oven time is a little too long so take it out earlier or watch it, but besides that will make again.

    I really enjoyed this easy recipe. The few things I did different was use bigger naan, only heated it for 9 minutes at 400F. Tasted Great

    Used smaller naan bread- very good lunch for kids. Make sure to lessen cook time 14 mins makes crust very crunchy.

    What a brilliant dinner! So many different varieties to make. I made mine with pitta bread and homemade pesto, mushrooms, mozzarella and coriander. Went down a treat and will definitely make again. :-)

    This has become a bimonthly meal in our house. It's so delicious, and we usually can make enough to take for lunch the next day. One of my favorite Yummly discoveries.

    Delicious! I tried this recipe on garlic Naan and added, mushrooms, olives and onions with the chicken and fresh tomatoes. It was a great combination of flavor. My husband enjoyed it very much! For added spice, a pinch of red pepper will do.

    Very easy to make. It came out great!I actually took it out of the oven at about 8 min. My daughter had it with some ranch :)
