Bruschetta is an appetizer made with a base of grilled or toasted bread and is most commonly topped with a combination of fresh tomato, basil, and garlic.  Sometimes, balsamic vinegar is involved also.

Today’s recipe takes that popular bruschetta topping and makes it a main dish by serving it over chicken.  The chicken gets seasoned with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. You can choose to cook the chicken in a skillet or over the grill.

Then comes the bruschetta topping. It’s made with tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, basil and balsamic vinegar. To finish it off, it all gets a drizzle of balsamic glaze. Whether you make the glaze yourself or purchase it from the store, this easy bruschetta chicken recipe will be delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped roma tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 34 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut in half horizontally)
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup balsamic glaze **see note

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, mix the tomatoes, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, and basil together. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Place in the refrigerator while you prepare the chicken.
  2. Season the chicken with the 2 tsp Italian seasoning, 1/2 tsp kosher salt,  and pepper to taste. You can then cook the chicken on the grill or in a skillet with a little olive oil.
  3. Top chicken with the tomato mixture and drizzle with balsamic glaze. Serves 4.

Notes

To make your own balsamic glaze, add 1 cup balsamic vinegar and 2 Tbsp sweetener (I use Splenda but sugar or honey can be used) to a sauce pan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, then turn down to medium low. Lightly simmer, stirring occasionally for 7 to 10 minutes until it has reduced in half and has started to thicken. You want it to coat the back of a spoon.
