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!)

  • Boneless + skinless chicken breasts
  • Olive oil
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Fresh Tomatoes
  • Red Onion

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.

Prosciutto and Melon Salad

Did you know you need to clean your melons before cutting?

Just in case you didn’t know! Make sure to clean your melons before cutting in them! Whenever you are cutting whole fruit, especially melons, you’ll want to wash the outside of the fruit in case there are any harmful germs on the outside of the fruit. Of course you aren’t eating the melon skin, but you are cutting through it, and the knife can transfer bacteria from the skin into the inner flesh as it gets dragged through! Simple scrub with a vegetable brush with warm water as you would potatoes!
