Is there any better flavor combination in the world than tomatoes, basil and mozzarella? If you said yes, I’d love to know what is better so I can try it asap. If you said no, then keep reading.
In my opinion, there is no better combination. And one of the things that makes it so great is that it’s so simple. Just 3 fresh, simple ingredients can transform literally anything into the best thing you’ve ever eaten. Pizza, pasta, lettuce, crostini, eggs, chicken. Yep. This Bruschetta Chicken is a no brainer.
Not only is this bruschetta chicken super delicious, it’s also extremely easy to make. All it takes is a few ingredients, and you’ve got a nutritious, tasty dinner on the table in no time. Just marinate your chicken for a bit while you prep everything, bake (or grill) the chicken while you steam some veggies or make a salad, top with the bruschetta mixture, and you’re done!
Also, just a heads up, you might want to keep some toast points handy. Because you will probably have extra bruschetta to scoop up, and you’ll definitely want to eat it all. Or you could just double the tomato, basil and mozzarella mixture and have bruschetta on toast points and on chicken! I won’t judge. I actually usually do. Because it’s just so darn delicious.
So. If you need a quick, healthy, and delicious dinner that is somewhat impressive but super easy to make, look no further. Bruschetta chicken has got you covered. It’s easy enough for a weeknight, fancy enough for a weekend, and absolutely worthy of company!
