Italian Herb Bruschetta Chicken

Italian Herb Bruschetta Chicken is exactly like the traditional crusty bread version, but instead of bread, we use chicken rubbed with minced garlic and seasoned with Italian herbs for a lighter meal in minutes! Drizzled with balsamic glaze for an extra punch of flavour, the whole family loves this weekly dinner.

Ingredients

For The Chicken:

  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts halved horizontally to make 4 fillets
  • 3 teaspoons Italian seasoning*
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil (for cooking)

For The Topping:

  • 4 Roma tomatoes finely chopped
  • 1/4 of a red onion finely chopped (or 3 cloves finely chopped garlic)
  • 4 tablespoons shredded fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • ½ cup freshly shaved parmesan cheese

Balsamic Glaze: (you can use store bought, or this recipe)

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar (OPTIONAL)

How To Prepare

    1. Season chicken with Italian seasoning, garlic and salt. Heat oil in a grill pan or skillet, and sear chicken breasts over medium-high heat until browned on both sides and cooked through (about 6 minutes each side). Remove from pan; set aside and allow to rest.
    2. Combine the tomatoes, red onion, basil, olive oil in a bowl. Season with salt. Top each chicken breast with the tomato mixture and parmesan cheese.
    3. Serve immediately with balsamic glaze (optional).

For The Balsamic Glaze:

  1. (If making from scratch, prepare while chicken is cooking.) Combine sugar (if using) and vinegar in a small saucepan over high heat and bring to the boil.
  2. Reduce heat to low; allow to simmer for 5-8 minutes or until mixture has thickened and reduced to a glaze. (If not using sugar, allow to reduce for 12-15 minutes on low heat).

Notes

*If you don’t have Italian seasoning, use Italian dried herbs. Or combine 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1 teaspoon dried basil, and 1 teaspoon dried parsley together.
