Bruschetta Chicken | A Favorite Dinner

This Bruschetta Chicken made its way around the web when I first posted it last week for dinner. Lots of people were sharing the picture because they were THAT excited about this ever-popular recipe. Now, all you lovely readers can actually share the prettier pictures with accompanying recipe to boot!

Main Ingredients Needed

This recipe is a relatively healthy one that only requires minimal (but flavorful!) ingredients.

  • Roma Tomatoes – fresh and slightly tangy, Roma tomatoes are the perfect type for bruschetta chicken.
  • Garlic + Fresh Basil – garlic and basil to complement the tomatoes.
  • Chicken – simple cooked chicken for a bright and fresh meal.
  • Balsamic Glaze – I love to top this meal with a balsamic glaze, it perfectly rounds out the flavors in this Italian-inspired dish.

Variations

This Bruschetta Chicken recipe is a simple one, but don’t let that deter you from customizing it for a little more flavor. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Parmesan Cheese: feel free to top this dish with parmesan cheese.
  • Red Onions: these can be added to the bruschetta to add some punch.
  • Italian Seasoning: try adding this to the chicken while it cooks. More herbs equals more flavor.

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS RECIPE!, This is one of the first recipes I tried of yours, and have since tried so many since i came across your site about a year ago! This one is one of my favorites, especially for my 2 year old, she loves tomatoes and pasta! Thanks for having this site to share!

    I am a former chef/culinary graduate. I make a homemade meal every night and my husband doesn’t usually say much. After I served him this Brushetta chicken he said,”is there seconds? This should be on a menu!” Thank you for making me look like a rockstar with this recipe!

    Did you change the recipe recently? I have made your bruschetta chicken several times and my family LOVES it. I always come to the website to access the recipe. But this recipe is not the one that I’ve made in the past. The one that my family loves uses a delicious breaded chicken. I should have printed the recipe. I’m so sad to have lost it.

    Hi! I refer back to this recipe all the time. Have I lost my mind, or has it changed? Where’s the recipe with the bread crumbs? I miss it and need it! I tried to make it by memory tonight and I must have forgotten something.

    I just made this tonight and we loved it!!! I used thin breast cutlets and served over angel hair. I also added about 2 tbls of red onion to the bruschetta and it was awesome! This recipe is definitely a keeper!!
