Bruschetta and Baked Chicken

This recipe was so simple to put together, if you love our Baked Pesto Chicken, you will definitely love this one just as much, if not, more!

What is Bruschetta?

Bruschetta is an Italian appetizer (antipasto) that consists of grilling bread and rubbed with a garlic clove. Some toppings include tomatoes, beans, cured meats, or veggies.

How To Make a Bruschetta Baked Chicken?

Start with slicing cherry tomatoes, feel free to use regular tomatoes and dice them into small pieces.

Add salt, pepper, fresh basil, and a drizzle of olive oil.

Add a touch of balsamic vinegar,

Toss together. This mixture is so good, you can eat it on it’s own or throw it over some crusty bread!

Assemble the chicken in a baking dish and add the seasonings. Give it a good rub to make sure the chicken is well coated in the spice mixture. Top with fresh mozzarella cheese and the tomato mixture. Bake at 375 degrees F. for about 35-40 minutes. To plate, add the chicken to a plate and arrange the tomatoes on top.

Add a nice healthy drizzle of balsamic glaze, which is a nice thick cooked down balsamic.You can find it here.

Garnish with some fresh basil! Doesn’t this look pretty? It’s delicious!

What is balsamic glaze? 

If you have never tried this, you’re missing out! It’s basically dark balsamic vinegar that is cooked down and reduced until it turns nice and thick. It will have a syrup-like consistency! We use this one here.

How to make this Bruschetta Baked Chicken Dairy-Free

If you want to make this dairy-free, use your favorite non dairy cheese or omit the cheese all together.

What is the best way to pound chicken

Place a single breast in a plastic Ziploc bag, or cover it with parchment paper (if you prefer not to use a Ziploc bag.) Remove as much air as possible and sealing before pounding. You can use almost any heavy, flat object to pound the breast — a skillet works great, a meat mallet, or anything heavy, feel free to get creative!

    OMG!! Absolutely the most delicious and flavorful chicken dish I have ever made…seriously! I rarely write a review but my husband and I were both blown away by the tenderness and juicy flavors of the chicken and the bruschetta topping. We honestly had to try hard to not inhale as we were eating. It’s that good. I’m making it again this weekend for friends and know it will be a new family favorite. Thank you Food Dolls for sharing this one!!
