Bruschetta Chicken

Posted by on Apr 4, 2013 in Chicken, Cooking, Dinner, Featured



This is one of my go-to dinners when I’m short on time!  Very easy and quick to make, but has tons of flavor.  Perfect for warm spring and summer dinners on the patio!


Bruschetta Chicken

(serves 4-6)

1.3 pounds of chicken breast strips (breasts or breast halves will work great too!)

2 tablespoons of olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

1 teaspoon of dried basil or 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

1 cup of chopped tomatoes

1/4 plus 4 tablespoons of Italian salad dressing (I’ve also used balsamic vinaigrette)

1/2-3/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese



Place half of the chicken in a large seal-able bag with 2 tablespoons of dressing and shake until coated.  In a large skillet heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken to the skillet and season with salt and pepper.  Cook until it is browned on each side and cooked thoroughly.  Repeat with the remaining chicken, coating it in the dressing and cooking it with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine 1/4 cup of dressing, basil, tomatoes, and cheese.  When all of the chicken is cooked, return it to your skillet over medium-low heat and pour the dressing/tomato/cheese mixture over the top.  Cover and let sit until it is heated through and the cheese is just melted.
