What is Bruschetta Chicken?

Bruschetta in Italian is actually an antipasto consisting of grilling bread, rubbing it with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt. Tomatoes and other toppings are often added like this simple tomato topping I used on my grilled chicken. This recipe takes a classic Italian appetizer and turns it into a main dish.

The tomatoes are the star of the show. To quote my husband “you could serve this over cardboard and it would be good!” We love it in the summer when tomatoes are ripest, serve this with some crusty bread to soak up the juice if you wish, or just have it over a great big salad.
