Chicken Bruschetta

Chicken Bruschetta

The aroma of garlic and freshly chopped basil is a mouthwatering combination.

When paired with fresh tomato and EVOO and a little balsamic vinegar, these simple ingredients create the perfect bruschetta, a traditionally Italian topping with unlimited uses.

In this recipe, we placed it atop perfectly grilled chicken breast.

If you’re looking for a refreshingly light meal with a simple preparation, our Chicken Bruschetta is the solution. The chicken breast is ideal grilled or broiled, and bruschetta can be made ahead and set in the fridge.
