Yummy (and Easy!) Bruschetta Chicken

Whether it's for company or for my family, there is nothing like a good home cooked meal. However, I am hardly a chef, nor do I have an entire day to prepare a meal. This Bruschetta Chicken is not only simple and delicious....it is also healthy. Further, the Bruschetta topping can be made in advance - in fact it's better that way as it allows time for all the flavors to really develop! Just have chicken breast on hand and it's a simple weeknight meal.

Ingredients


  1. 3-4 chicken breasts (about 2 lbs.)

  2. 6 roma tomatoes

  3. 1/2 cup fresh chopped basil

  4. 2 cloves fresh chopped garlic

  5. 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

  6. 1/2 tsp salt

  7. 1/2 tsp black pepper

  8. 4 oz shredded mozzarella cheese -about 1 cup

  9. Fresh chopped basil

  10. Balsamic GlazeGarnish (optional)

Instructions Preheat the oven to 375˚F

Chop the roma tomatoes into small 1/4" pieces.

Chop basil and garlic.

In a large bowl, toss the tomatoes, basil, and garlic with the vinegar and half of the salt and pepper. Lay the chicken breasts flat in the bottom of a large baking dish (I brush with a little olive oil) and season with the remaining salt and pepper.  

Pour the tomato mixture over the top of the chicken and then use a spatula to spread it evenly over the chicken.  

Top with the mozzarella cheese. Bake on the middle oven rack for 35-45 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165˚F.

Top with fresh chopped basil and balsamic glaze to garnish. Serve hot and Enjoy!
