I think I speak for most of us when I say the reason you might get sick of chicken is because of how you prepare it. If you’re eating an overcooked chicken breast accompanied with some veggies, it is going to get old- quick. So me, I’m always looking for new ways to spice it up. Which is when I thought of the most summer chicken recipe, healthy bruschetta chicken.

So I guess first and foremost we need to address the number one chicken cardinal rule. If you are overcooking your chicken… stop it!

Overcooking chickens makes the protein rubbery and almost unbearable to eat. Searing your chicken first and finishing it in an oven is the best way to avoid overcooking your chicken. And that’s exactly how we are going to cook this healthy bruschetta chicken. My recommendation would be to get yourself a thermometer to read the temperature so you’re not left guessing and you can have perfectly cooked 165 degrees chicken breast.

Anywho, back to this summer chicken recipe…

So bruschetta is like epitome of summer. And if you don’t agree with me, I have one word for you: Tomatoes. Tomatoes are about as summer as you get. So the idea behind this healthy bruschetta chicken is this. The chicken breast acts in the bread place and the beloved bruschetta tomato, basil, balsamic is mounded on the top. Making it so beautiful, so droolworthy, but so worth it.

I used my cast-iron skillet to cook this bad boy, but because of summer feel free to grill using your methods and then serve with the bruschetta topping!
