I’m always on the hunt for easy but impressive ways to transform ordinary chicken breasts into something extraordinary. Fast, fresh and flavor-packed? I’ve got the the answer to our dinner dilemma: Quick Bruschetta Chicken!

Bruschetta has taken on many unique forms around here, from a breakfast staple to a pizza topping (and even a dessert.) It’s safe to say that if it involves fresh tomatoes, basil and some sort of crusty carb, I’ve conquered it.

How to Make Bruschetta Chicken

I’ve kept this one extra-simple with just six basic ingredients and endless options for customizations. For once, I’ve decided to skip the carbs and traded them in for moist, garlicky chicken breast. This chicken is the perfect canvas for that bowl-o-jewels below. You’ll want to make sure to pat the chicken breast dry before seasoning with garlic powder, salt and pepper.

What Ingredients Are in Bruschetta?

Preparing this bruschetta could not be easier. I simply toss ripe tomatoes with salt, pepper and plenty of chopped fresh basil. The quality of your ingredients are of key importance here, so be sure to stock up on some of those juicy tomatoes, flaky sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper.

You’re welcome to use this topping on grilled, garlic-rubbed crostini for the full carb-driven experience, of course. Could you drizzle in a touch of olive oil and a splash of balsamic vinegar as well? Absolutely!

What to Serve with Bruschetta Chicken

As simple as the setup is, the flavors couldn’t be more of a powerhouse. Serve up this Bruschetta Chicken on individual plates, or keep it casual on a platter and pile the tomato salad on top. Add a few Parmesan cheese shavings to complete this guaranteed dinner winner!

P.S. If you’re eyeing the accompaniment on the plates below, that’s none other than my all-time favorite recipe for The Best Basil Pesto with my go-to rotini noodles.

    Yeah! Any new ways to use bruschetta works for me. In my bruschetta I use many things. My favorites are kalamata olives, onion, pine nuts, a good hard cheeze, garlic, even artichoke heart! I just try to think Italian! Good olive oil and thick basalmic vinegar to top it off! Perfect heart healthy food! Thanks for the heads-up on chicken.
    Try this: google up wild rice stuffing, look at several different ways and select what appeals to you then stuff a portabella mushroom then grill for 5 – 8 minutes. Great meal!
