Breaded Bruschetta Chicken | Better Than the Original!

I love bruschetta and I love breaded chicken so it only makes sense to put them together and serve with pasta for a tasty and light meal! Chicken tenders are coated in melted butter, bread crumbs and parmesan cheese, then baked until perfection. Added to some angel hair and then topped with tomatoes, fresh basil and lots of garlic, this will become your new favorite dinner!

Main Ingredients Needed

This recipe is a relatively healthy one that has crazy flavor. All the cheese, garlic and basil are to blame. It’s the chicken tenders that become the star of the show by getting dipped in melted butter, then breadcrumbs and cheese. They bake away in a hot oven, then get served over pasta with a bruschetta tomato topping. Simplicity at its finest! This meal certainly isn’t glamorous, but it’s really really tasty. Give it a whirl tonight and let me know how you and your family liked it 🙂

How to Make Breaded Bruschetta Chicken

All in all, this recipe should take under an hour start to finish. The most active time you will have is breading the chicken. Once it hits the oven, you just have to cook the pasta (if you want to serve this with pasta) and make the bruschetta topping. Pretty easy!

Step 1: Bread the Chicken

Bring a large pot of water to boil. In a shallow dish or pie plate, stir breadcrumbs together with parmesan cheese, garlic salt and black pepper. In a separate bowl, melt butter.

To bread the chicken tenders, blot with paper towels and then dip in melted butter. Transfer to bread crumb mixture and press to coat the chicken. Place into a greased baking dish. Transfer chicken to a 375 degree oven uncovered and bake until golden brown and at least 165 degrees F internally.

Step 2: Cook the Pasta

If you are making pasta to go with this dinner, now would be the time to add your pasta to the boiling water. If using angel hair, your pasta should be cooked in no time! Drain, rinse briefly and then toss with 1-2 tablespoons of salted butter (or olive oil if you’d prefer). Set aside.

Step 3: Make the Bruschetta Topping

To make the yummy tomato topping, simply chop up your tomatoes, fresh basil and garlic. Toss together with olive oil and balsamic vinegar (optional, but makes a great ‘dressing’ for the tomatoes). Set aside.

Step 4: Assemble Your Breaded Bruschetta Chicken!

Once you pull the chicken out of the oven, you are ready to serve! Add some pasta to your plate, top with the breaded chicken tenders and then top generously with the bruschetta tomato topping. And that’s dinner! Yum!
