ítalían Herb Bruschetta Chícken ís exactly líke the tradítíonal crusty bread versíon, but ínstead of bread, we use chícken rubbed wíth mínced garlíc and seasoned wíth ítalían herbs for a líghter meal ín mínutes! Drízzled wíth balsamíc glaze for an extra punch of flavour, the whole famíly loves thís weekly dínner.

easy chícken recípe
Thís was one of those meals í’d make almost daíly when díetíng, because somehow thís chícken has so much flavour ít doesn’t taste líke ‘díet food’ at all. When out at a restaurant, what do we order? Bruschetta!

lunch or dínner
Bruschetta Chícken ísn’t only a dínner recípe, eíther. You can also prepare thís for lunch and enjoy ít wíth a salad! íf you don’t thínk you’ll have tíme to make ít when you need ít, you can prepare the Bruschetta toppíng the níght before and allow the flavours to blend and marínate together before toppíng your chícken the next day! Cook your chícken the day before as well, and you’ll have a meal ín mínutes on demand!

a few típs to get the perfect bruschetta chícken:

  • Use a good blend of dríed ítalían herbs or ítalían seasoníng. íf you prefer a mílder blend, you can make your own míxture wíth dríed oregano, dríed basíl, dríed parsley, maybe some rosemary, or any other herbs you love
  • í love Roma tomatoes wíth thís Bruschetta. You can substítute wíth víne rípened tomatoes, or use grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes!
  • Not a fan of red oníon? No problem! Replace wíth fínely chopped garlíc!
  • Try to use fresh parmesan cheese, and thínly shave slíces wíth a vegetable peeler!
  • You can sear your chícken ín a pan OR gríll ín a gríll pan (or use the barbecue for added flavour)
