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. Then you add some Deglaze Balsamic Vinegar and you will be in love as quickly as I was..haha…but really. The Bruschetta Chicken is wonderful and even my boys ask for it over and over as they love the flavors.
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. You can quickly dice up the Roma Tomatoes and red onion into a bowl and add basil. 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 your chicken.
Cooking chicken breasts is easy. Salt and Pepper your breasts to taste and throw them into a hot frying pan with some olive oil. 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.
Serve up Bruschetta Chicken
Once the chicken is cooked, I plate the chicken and add the bruschetta. Don’t forget to top it all off with some parmesan and some deglaze balsamic vinegar. It’s wonderful. You can make your own glaze, it’s super easy or you can buy it from the store. Again, I love Trader Joe’s for this item. It’s sweet with that balsamic twang. Yummy! Stores easily in your refrigerator and is perfect for whenever you need it.
