In a large nonstick skillet cook chicken in hot oil over medium heat about 5 minutes or just until brown. Stir in green pepper, red pepper, and onions. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes more or until vegetables are just tender. Stir in pasta sauce; heat through. Spoon chicken mixture evenly onto one side of each flatbread. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, banana peppers, and basil. Fold flatbreads in half (sandwiches will be full). Preheat a covered indoor grill, panini press, grill pan, or large skillet. Place sandwiches, half at a time, in grill. Cover and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until browned and cheese is melted. (If using a grill pan or skillet, place sandwiches on grill pan or skillet. Weight sandwiches down* and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until bread is toasted. Turn sandwiches over, weight them down, and cook about 2 minutes more or until toasted and cheese is melted.) *Tip: *Weight the sandwiches down by placing a heavy skillet on top of them; add a few unopened cans of food to the top skillet. (If you use a heavy cast iron skillet, you might not need to use the cans for weight.)
