What Is Chicken Bruschetta Made Of? 

There are many variations of bruschetta chicken. However, they nearly always contain olive oil, tomatoes, mozzarella, and a balsamic glaze, and our version is no different! Here’s everything you’ll need: 

  • Chicken – We prefer to use chicken breasts over thighs because there is plenty of fat and flavor from the other ingredients! 
  • Olive Oil – If there’s ever a time to splurge, this is it. Trust us, choosing a high-quality extra virgin olive oil is the secret to making chicken bruschetta that’s unbelievably delicious. 
  • Tomatoes – We use cherry tomatoes because they’re sweet and easy to prepare. However, beefsteak or heirloom tomatoes are great, too. You’ll just want to make sure to peel and deseed them as they tend to have a more bitter flavor. 
  • Herbs and Seasonings – There’s no shortage of flavor in this dish! You’ll need lemon juice, basil, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, Herbs de Provence, and thyme. 
  • Balsamic – To create the best drizzle, we used a combination of balsamic vinegar and balsamic glaze
  • Cheese – We used mozzarella as most bruschetta recipes do. However, feel free to experiment with other white cheeses such as provolone or goat cheese, too!

Baking Tips

Take a look at a few of our favorite tips below to ensure that your bruschetta chicken turns out perfectly flavorful and ultra-juicy every single time. 

Pound the Chicken. The thinner your chicken breast is, the faster it’ll cook and the juicier it will be! For the best results, place a single chicken breast in a sealable bag or under a piece of parchment paper. Then, use a heavy utensil such as a meat mallet or even a skillet to pound out the chicken until it is thin and flat. 

Use a Meat Thermometer. Instead of cutting into your chicken to check that it’s done, use a meat thermometer to ensure that it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Use Fresh Cheese. Fresh sliced mozzarella is so much more flavorful than the pre-sliced, packaged versions! 

Cook It On the Grill! For a slightly smoky taste perfect for summer, try cooking your chicken on the grill instead of in the oven.

Serving Suggestions 

The great thing about chicken bruschetta is that it goes with pretty much anything! For instance, to keep it low-carb, try serving it over a bed of zucchini noodles or fresh greens. Or, serve it over your favorite pasta noodles or with a side of potatoes. No matter what you do, it’s always scrumptious!
