Grilled Bruschetta Chicken

Posted on

Grilled Bruschetta Chicken is a summer staple in my house! Made with juicy tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, red onion, garlic and balsamic, it turns plain grilled chicken into a delicious weeknight meal in minutes!

Grilled Bruschetta Chicken

Make the tomatoes the night before or early in the morning and let all the flavors marinate. Then when you are ready to eat grill some chicken and you have yourself a quick weeknight meal.

What is Bruschetta Chicken?

Bruschetta in Italian is actually an antipasto consisting of grilling bread, rubbing it with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt. Tomatoes and other toppings are often added like this simple tomato topping I used on my grilled chicken. This recipe takes a classic Italian appetizer and turns it into a main dish.

The tomatoes are the star of the show. To quote my husband “you could serve this over cardboard and it would be good!” We love it in the summer when tomatoes are ripest, serve this with some crusty bread to soak up the juice if you wish, or just have it over a great big salad.
