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:
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)
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons brown sugar (OPTIONAL)
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.
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.
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).
