I first tried Bruschetta Chicken with Deglaze Balsamic Vinegar before my recent trip to Italy.  I was hooked instantly.  The melding of flavors in the bruschetta on top of a perfectly season chicken breast were wonderful.  I knew I would have to find it while touring Italy and taste it in Tuscany.

With a simple Balsamic Glaze drizzle on top all the fresh ingredient flavors come together with a delicious grilled chicken breast. Each bite is perfect. Of course when paired with a Homemade Alfredo Sauce served over your favorite pasta you have restaurant quality meal made right from home.

Resturant Quality Recipe

There was a time in my life when I was fearful of recipes that looked “fancy”.  The Bruschetta Chicken is so easy, you can wow your friends or family with this dish.  It whips up easily.  Let me help you make a dinner to be proud of.

I recently held a Facebook Live where I showed Step by step this exact recipe using an Instant Pot to cook pasta, an Air Fryer to cook Chicken and the Stove Top to make Homemade Alfredo Sauce.

Facebook Live How to make Bruschetta Chicken

You can quickly dice up the Roma Tomatoes and red onion into a bowl and add basil.  Mix together for a delicious garnish on top.

In the summer I love fresh basil, however it’s just not always available, so I go for the next best thing.  Either basil paste or frozen cubes from Trader Joes.  Oh how I love that place.  🙂   

Regardless what you use, you won’t be disappointed.  Mix it together and let it sit for the flavors to meld together while you cook the chicken. Cooking chicken breasts is easy in the Air Fryer or on the grill.

Salt and Pepper chicken breasts and sprinkle some Italian Seasoning and throw them into a hot frying pan with some olive oil.  Always check the internal temperature with a thermometer to reach 165F Degrees.

It’s also helpful to have a digital thermometer. I prefer to use the Thermopen by Thermoworks. Find out more about why I love my Thermopen.

Thermapen and Chicken Breasts

Allow them to cook on one side for 6-8 minutes.  I cook at a medium high temperature and depending on how thick the breasts are will determine the length of time. 

Then flip and cook an additional 6-8 minutes on the other side.  Your chicken needs to reach an internal temperature of 165F degrees to be cooked all the way through. 

Raw chicken is bad news.  So make sure you cook it all the way.  

How to Air Fry Chicken Breasts

After you have seasoned up the chicken breasts place chicken in a greased Air Fryer at 350 to 370 degrees for 6-7 minutes. Flip chicken over and cook for an additional 6-7 minutes. As chicken breasts come in all shapes and sizes it’s important to use an internal thermometer to test for doneness. Thicker breasts will take longer.

Honey Glazed Chicken

I typically purchase large breasts that I butterfly for a more even thickness and cooking time.

Allow breasts to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving
