Bruschetta Chicken
Level: Easy
Total: 30 min
Active: 30 min
Yield: 3 servings


3 cups diced crusty bread
5 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 chicken cutlets (thin-cut chicken breast)
5 Roma tomatoes, diced
2 cloves garlic, pressed
6 fresh basil leaves, chiffonade, plus whole fresh basil leaves for garnish
3 tablespoons balsamic reduction/glaze


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Toss the diced bread with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper and place on a sheet pan. Toast in the oven until golden, but still a little chewy, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over a medium-high heat. Sprinkle the chicken cutlets with salt and pepper and, when the oil is hot, add to the skillet. Fry, flipping as needed, until cooked through and nicely seared, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Combine the tomatoes, garlic, basil chiffonade, the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, some salt and pepper and 1 tablespoon balsamic reduction in a bowl. Toss and set aside.

Remove the bread from the oven and, at the last minute, toss with the tomato mixture. Top the cooked chicken with the bread/tomato mixture, allowing it to fall around the edges and fill in the gaps of the skillet. Drizzle over the remaining 2 tablespoons balsamic reduction and garnish with some fresh basil leaves. Serve immediately.
