Bruschetta Chicken Bake

Looking for a fresh, healthy, and easy chicken dish with the taste of summertime? So was I. I scoured the internet for a chicken bruschetta recipe and all of them contained Stove Top Stuffing mix. Um, bruschetta does not taste like Thanksgiving dinner. I quickly discarded my search and created my own recipe.

Bruschetta Chicken Bake


3 chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise
5 tablespoons EVOO
1/2 cup Fresh chopped Basil
1 tablespoon Fresh chopped Oregano
Dash of salt
2 Cloves Crushed Garlic
3 Roma Tomatoes, chopped
3/4 cup Grape tomatoes, halved
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (optional)
1/4 loaf of French Bread (stale is ideal)

In a 2.5 quart baking dish, place the chicken breast strips. Cover with 4 tbsp of the EVOO. In a separate bowl combine the tomatoes, onions, basil, oregano, salt, garlic, 1 tbsp EVOO, and 1/2 of the mozzarella. Pour mixture over the chicken breasts, cover with remainder of cheese. Cut french bread to cover entire dish. Cover dish with foil and bake for 40 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked. Serve either warm or cold with extra pieces of bread. Perfect summertime dish.
