Easy Bruschetta Chicken Recipe

This Bruschetta Chicken is perfect anytime of the year now that you can find ripe greenhouse tomatoes year round. However this is especially on point during grilling season when farm, fresh tomatoes are everywhere. It’s the perfect semi no cook meal when the weather begs for you to cook and eat outside. The chicken is marinated to perfection, grilled, and topped with a delicious fresh tomato bruschetta. It’s perfect on it’s own, but if you want you can serve it with a light salad or with pasta! This dish is already gluten-free and low-carb but leave out the cheese for a Whole30 compliant or paleo meal.

What is Bruschetta?

Bruschetta (pronounced bru-sketta in case you ever find yourself in Italy and want to do as the Italians do) is an Italian appetizer of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and olive oil, and sometimes topped with other things like tomatoes. In American culture bruschetta usually means bread topped with diced tomatoes and basil, and sometimes cheese. Our recipe takes the idea of the grilled bread, and uses grilled chicken instead for a heartier more nutrient dense version, making it appropriate as a meal (and dang delicious!)

How to Serve Bruschetta Chicken

This recipe is intended to be a stand alone dish! But it wouldn’t be out of place to serve it with some pasta (spaghetti or linguine might be nice), spaghetti squash or cauliflower rice. It also could be great on a bed of tender greens like spinach or arugula!

Can I make it without a grill?

Yes! While we love the charred smoky taste of the grill, this dish would still be perfectly acceptable on a grill pan inside of even if you need to, in a regular skillet! Do what works for you, either way a nice marinated juicy piece of chicken will be delicious topped with this tomato salad.

  4. Grilled veggies are my absolute favorite. I can grill up the same mix of veggies every week and never get bored!

  6. I am so excited for grilling season! I cannot wait to try grilling some fruit this summer – pineapple, peaches, watermelon! I’m excited!

  9. Normally we’re big fans of all things burgers but this year I’m interested/excited to make seafood boats of various kinds. Lobster or shrimp, mussels, etc. So many!

  11. The usual veggies and meat are always great, but my absolute favorites are grilled fruits – particularly pineapples and peaches!

  13. I am so excited to grill pineapples. Nothing like grilled pineapple brushed with brown sugar on top. Definitely, chicken, burgers and corn on the cob as well!

  14. Made this tonight…SO GOOD! Only had bone in, skin on thighs so popped it in the oven to finish. Really easy and fast and super yummy!
