Bruchetta Chicken

The start of school signifies the start of something else around our house… back to more healthful eating. Why do i find summer so difficult??? Too much “ha-ha-ha-ing” i suppose, as the old saying goes. But we’re back at it, now and i’m thinkin my body is happier already!

Here’s a recipe i found on a neato website called Skinny Mom’s Kitchen : Bruchetta Chicken caught my eye immediately. Not only does it incorporate one of my favorite ingredient combos (tomatoes, garlic, basil, and olive oil), but it is quick to put together. That is a definite game winner around this place!!!



Fresh grape tomatoes, halved

Add chopped fresh basil, garlic, olive oil and balsamic vinegar..

Season your chicken breasts with salt and pepper.. Next time i make this dish, i will butterfly the chicken to allow the flavors to permeate the chicken a bit more..this will also cut the cooking time down slightly.

Pour the bruschetta mixture over the chicken and turn to coat. I added some balsamic glaze over top.

Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes…the tomatoes come out slightly carmalized. Delish!!

Serve over a bed of quinoa and add a side veggie…our favorite is roasted and slightly charred broccoli. Place your trimmed broccoli crowns on a parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake at 400 for approx 10-15 min. Broil for the last minute or so. My kids seriously go crazy over this!

tonight we added a bit of the balsamic glaze on top as well!
