Grilled Chicken Bruschetta

Grilled Chicken topped with fresh tomatoes, basil, onion, garlic and extra virgin olive oil.  It has the scent of summer and is Healthy Italian at its finest.  Using in season produce like tomatoes and basil gives your recipe a sweetness and freshness you simply cannot get the rest of the year.  Seize the moment and up your cooking with in season ingredients.

I used my make ahead Perfect Every Time Grilled Chicken recipe for this one.  I love to have food already made that I can add to and make new and flavorful meals with.  Adding the fresh bruschetta on top makes this a really quick and super delicious meal. 

  • 6 grilled chicken cutlets
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 beefsteak tomatoes, cut into small bite size cubes
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped red or white onion, preferably red if you have both
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 10 basil leaves, rolled up like a cigar and cut into ribbons
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
In a bowl, add tomaotes, onions, extra virgin olive oil, oregano, basil, salt and pepper, mix well
Plate 1 chicken cutlet and spoon 1/6 th of the tomato mixture and some juice atop
Serve with crusty bread
Servings: 6

  3. Love the idea of making all that grilled chicken ahead of time. Great strategy for weeknight meals.

  4. This looks so good. I just went to the farmers market this morning. This makes me want to go back and get more tomatoes and basil!

  5. This looks fantastic. I will be having this for lunch this week.
