Does anything scream Summer more than TOMATOES!? I planted one tomato plant on my small apartment patio a few weeks ago and I can't believe I already have little tomato flowers!!! This year I bought a tomato cage to corral my plant (because last year got a tad out of control), and I can hardly wait for it to overflow with sweet tomato goodness. You better believe this bruschetta chicken will be on repeat all Summer! Did I mention it only takes 30 minutes to make?
This is one of my go-to chicken recipes, especially when tomatoes are at their peak, but I can usually find the little Compari tomatoes year-round. Check your local Costco, Trader Joes, or sometimes my Ralphs (Kroger) has them, too. They usually come in one of those plastic clamshells. The best news - you are only 30 minute away from an epic bruschetta chicken dinner!
My secret tip to perfect juicy chicken (or any meat really) is flip only once. Whether you're grilling your chicken (my preference) or using a cast iron skillet, FLIP ONCE. Trust me. I know you can be tempted to flip over and over. Flipping once locks in those juices and really seals in the flavor. These chicken breasts are seasoned simply with salt and pepper before cooking because that is truly all they need. The flavor comes alive with the bruschetta topping.
While the chicken is cooking, you can simply mix the chopped tomatoes, basil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. This dish looks way fancier than it is, which means it would make a great dish for entertaining. Serve alongside my oven roasted potatoes and kale salad and you've got yourself a de-licious dinner!Print
