I adore bruschetta. I especially love during the summer. I love those fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, ridiculous amounts of garlic, it’s all so wonderful! Oh, and let’s not forget the warm toasty bread. It’s like all of my favorite things in one delicious bite!
Since I can’t really justify eating a bunch of bread for dinner, serving that delicious tomato topping on top of chicken is the perfect solution! Add a slice of mozzarella on top and hiiii, best spring/summer dinner ever!
The chicken first sits in a marinade with a bit of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and lemon juice for about 20-30 minutes. While it’s marinating, dice up the tomatoes, garlic, and basil. The chicken goes on the grill for a few minutes on each side, top with a slice of mozzarella, let it melt, and then serve with a big scoop of those delicious tomatoes on top! This chicken plus a glass of crisp white wine is literally the perfect summer dinner!
Tips and Suggestions:
- I like to use cherry or grape tomatoes for this recipe as they are easy to chop up, but you can really use any type of tomato for this.
- You can prepare the bruschetta topping in advance if needed, just keep it refrigerated until it is ready to serve.
- This chicken is best served alongside some pasta, a big salad, roasted potatoes, grilled veggies, or even rice!
