Mini naan topped with hummus, chicken and roasted tomatoes, zucchini and corn tossed in pesto.

How This Recipe Came To Be:

This goodie came to be in the most random of ways… Truly! For a quick lunch or even a little snack, I like to grab some store bought rotisserie chicken, hummus and naan out of the fridge to munch on. Just 3 simple ingredients is all it takes.

And one summer – as I sat in my kitchen having this exact lunch – I thought to myself what can I add to this to make it that much more appealing. In that moment, I saw my garden zucchini. And that, along with the thought of roasted veggies and pesto, brought this plate to life.

What You Will Need For These Chicken & Veggie Pesto Stackers:

  • Naan
  • Hummus – store bought or homemade (Give my recipe a try: The Best Classic Homemade Hummus)
  • Rotisserie chicken
  • Pesto
  • Veggies
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
Mini naan topped with hummus, chicken and roasted tomatoes, zucchini and corn tossed in pesto.

The great thing is, all of these ingredients are things you can easily get your hands on. Just use fresh or frozen sweet corn and zucchini and baby tomatoes. It’s super simple, and I absolutely love it.

Pro Tip: If you have leftover zucchini and corn from a summer garden just flash freeze it. So then you can use it whenever you want. Don’t let it go to the birds! 😉

  1. Hi Naomi. Thanks for posting this recipe! I have a habit of googling the items in my fridge to see what’s for dinner. I typed “roast chicken, zucchini, naan,” and your recipe came up! It’s like you knew what I had in my garden and what I bought at Costco yesterday! Unfortunately, my kids turned their noses up at the roasted veggies, but they were happy with pesto and chicken on their naan. The grownups enjoyed your recipe as written! Thanks for the new combination!

    1. Wow, Lori, you absolutely made my day! I am beyond thrilled that you love this recipe. Also, it’s great to hear how you stumbled upon my recipe as well. Isn’t the internet great?!? And I’m glad your kiddos liked it too (minus the veggies). Thanks again!
