Bruschetta Chicken is delicious and a lovely way to enjoy those garden fresh tomatoes!
If you are one of the lucky ones that has red tomatoes in their garden you are going to want to give this recipe a try. I, unfortunately, have no more red tomatoes left. It was a bad year for tomatoes.
Even if you don’t have tomatoes in your garden you are going to want to pick up some tomatoes at the grocery store (I prefer the “on the vine” ones) along with some fresh basil and give this recipe a try.
Because our tomato crop was poor this year I didn’t get my fill of bruschetta like I usually do. This recipe, which my sister in law Jayna shared with me, helped me get my bruschetta fix. It is an easy and quick dinner to put together and would be perfect served with some buttered noodles or pasta.
You may even want to make a little extra of the tomato/basil mixture and enjoy it on some toasted bread rounds!
I pounded my chicken breast so it was an even thickness and it also cooked quicker and more evenly that way. Instead of Italian seasoning I used some of my Johnny’s Garlic Spread and Seasoning sprinkled on the chicken breasts as they browned.
Bruschetta chicken is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. It was a big hit at our house. Thanks for sharing Jayna!
