Bruschetta Chicken Ingredients
This section explains how to choose the best ingredients for this easy bruschetta chicken recipe, what each one does in the recipe, and substitution options. For measurements, see the recipe card below.
For the chicken:
- Chicken breasts – Choose boneless skinless chicken breasts that are similar in size.
- Fresh mozzarella – A bruschetta chicken recipe with mozzarella tastes so satisfying, but you can omit f. Low moisture part skim mozzarella will also work, but won’t have the same melty texture.
- Olive oil – Use extra virgin for best flavor.
- Sea salt & black pepper
For the bruschetta topping:
- Cherry tomatoes – These have the sweetest flavor for healthy bruschetta chicken, but any variety will work.
- Sun dried tomatoes – Go with store bought, or make homemade sun-dried tomatoes.
- Fresh basil – Adds fresh, herby flavor in a classic bruschetta topping. Look for bright green leaves with no bruising or browning.
- Garlic – You can mince it fresh or buy jarred for convneience.
- Balsamic vinegar – Balsamic bruschetta chicken has the best flavor. Avoid substituting with a different vinegar.
- Olive oil – Use extra virgin for best flavor. Avocado oil is also fine.
- Sea salt & black pepper
How To Make Bruschetta Chicken
This section shows how to make this naturally low carb bruschetta chicken with step-by-step photos and details about the technique. For full instructions, see the recipe card below.
- Make topping. Combine both kinds of tomatoes, basil, garlic, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
- Prep chicken. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Grill chicken. Grill on both sides. When it’s almost done on the second side, add sliced mozzarella to each chicken breast. Cover and allow the cheese to melt. Use a meat thermometer to know when it’s done – it should reach 165 degrees F.
- Add topping. Top with prepared tomato topping and serve!
- To store: If you have leftovers, you can store grilled chicken with bruschetta in the fridge for 3-4 days.
- To meal prep: Prepare the bruschetta topping up to 2 days in advance. Grill chicken right before serving, if possible, but you could also make the entire meal and reheat.
- To reheat: Reheat the grilled chicken in the oven (without topping) at 350 degrees F for best results. The microwave will work, but can dry out the chicken. Top with the bruschetta mixture after reheating.
- To freeze: You can freeze the chicken, but avoid freezing the bruschetta topping as the texture will change too much.
What To Serve With Bruschetta Chicken
Grilled chicken with bruschetta pairs well with all these dinnertime favorites:
- Simple salads – Chopped antipasto salad, marinated artichoke salad, or roasted vegetable salad make delicious pairings with this recipe.
- Easy noodles – Regular pasta works great, or try healthier zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash, or shirataki noodles.
- Roasted veggies – Baked cheesy asparagus, roasted artichokes, or roasted zucchini work well with this dish. Roasted cherry tomatoes also make a delicious side or even replacement for the bruschetta topping.
