Chicken bruschetta bake

Last week, I made my favorite bruschetta recipe and it was SO delicious! When summer rolls around, I’m always reminded of how much I love bruschetta and just how tasty it is. We had some of the bruschetta mixture leftover, so what better way to use it up by making a chicken bruschetta bake! If you’ve never tried bruschetta chicken, it is so simple and the bruschetta compliments the chicken so well. It makes the perfect flavor combination and is one of my favorite meals this time of year! bruschetta recipe

Combine the tomatoes, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic and basil. Salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate to allow the flavors to marinate.

Quick tips about this chicken bruschetta

  • If you’d rather grill the bruschetta chicken instead of bake it, you easily can. Just season the chicken and cook on grill until cooked through.
  • I like to serve the chicken bruschetta bake on a bed of lettuce and top with parmesan flakes.
  • This chicken bruschetta would also taste delicious with a piece of mozzarella melted on top. Once chicken is cooked through, just top it with a slice of mozzarella and let melt. Then top with bruschetta mixture.
  • You could also turn this into a pasta salad. Cook and dice the chicken and then add chicken, bruschetta and pasta to a bowl and mix. I like this recipe.
  • Are you missing the bread that’s in the traditional bruschetta recipe? You could easily incorporate it back in! I would cut a a french baguette into 4 pieces (then slice vertically) and add cooked chicken slices and bruschetta on top. It would be extra yummy topped with melted cheese too. :)
