Craving Italian food? Olive Garden might immediately come to mind for delicious lunch options. However, it probably isn’t the healthiest choice, so we put together this Olive Garden Chicken Piadina CopyCat recipe. It has all the same delicious flavors as the restaurant version, but with fewer calories. We nixed the heavy Italian cream sauce in favor of silky mozzarella cheese. Since we cut down the fat, you can feel great about enjoying this flavorful flatbread sandwich.

First, garlic, oregano, and sun-dried tomatoes give this meal a classic Italian taste. Then, lean chicken breast and spinach load it up with protein and nutrients. So, what are you waiting for? Serve this alongside a tasty soup or salad for a wholesome dinner, or enjoy with a side of homemade chips for a simple lunch.
