Bruschetta Chicken

I’m always looking for new ways to prepare the same old foods so I don’t get bored eating the same stuff every single day. I’ve even started combining foods I like, which is huge for me because I’m a creature of habit. I made some homemade bruschetta the other day and it smelled heavenly! I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to use it for, other than just eating it as a side, so I decided to put it over some grilled chicken breast tenderloin. The result? Absolutely delicious bruschetta chicken! Here’s the recipe:

Bruschetta Chicken
Serves: 1
  • 6 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast (I used tenderloin)
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 large tomato
  • Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb seasoning
  • Mrs. Dash Italian Medley seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp basil, chopped
  1. Marinate chicken breast in olive oil and Mrs. Dash seasonings for at least an hour. Grill until done.
  2. Dice tomato.
  3. Add 1 Tbsp olive oil, garlic and basil and mix well.
  4. Add tomato.
  5. Spoon over grilled chicken.
Use half of the bruschetta on the chicken. The nutritional information provided is based on using half of the bruschetta.
