Bruschetta Chicken with Italian Herbs

This breadless version of bruschetta turns the classic appetizer into a low-carb dinner by swapping crostini with boneless chicken breasts.



A few tips to get the perfect bruschetta chicken:

  • Use a good blend of dried Italian herbs or Italian seasoning. If you prefer a milder blend, you can make your own mixture with dried oregano, dried basil, dried parsley, maybe some rosemary, or any other herbs you love

  • I love Roma tomatoes with this Bruschetta. You can substitute with vine-ripened tomatoes, or use grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes!

  • Not a fan of red onion? No problem! Replace with finely chopped garlic!

  • Try to use fresh Parmesan cheese, and thinly shave slices with a vegetable peeler!



Ingredients - (cca. 4 servings)


For The Chicken:

  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts halved horizontally to make 4 fillets

  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic

  • salt to taste

  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil (for cooking)


For The Topping:

  • 4 Roma tomatoes finely chopped

  • 1/4 of a red onion finely chopped (or 3 cloves finely chopped garlic)

  • 4 tablespoons shredded fresh basil

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • salt to taste

  • ½ cup freshly shaved parmesan cheese


Balsamic Glaze: (you can use store-bought or this recipe)




Preparation



  1. Season chicken with Italian seasoning, garlic, and salt. Heat oil in a grill pan or skillet, and sear chicken breasts over medium-high heat until browned on both sides and cooked through (about 6 minutes each side). Remove from pan; set aside and allow to rest.

  2. Combine the tomatoes, red onion, basil, olive oil in a bowl. Season with salt. Top each chicken breast with the tomato mixture and parmesan cheese.

  3. Serve immediately with balsamic glaze (optional).


For The Balsamic Glaze:

  • (If making from scratch, prepare while the chicken is cooking.) Combine sugar (if using) and vinegar in a small saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; allow to simmer for 5-8 minutes or until mixture has thickened and reduced to a glaze. (If not using sugar, allow to reduce for 12-15 minutes on low heat).
