I thawed the last of a bag of frozen chicken breasts from Costco the other day, so I went looking for a chicken recipe to make for dinner. EXCEPT that I already had a loaf of applesauce oatmeal bread planned as the carb (I’ll get to that recipe another day, I promise), so I needed a recipe that didn’t involve potatoes, pasta, or sauce that begged to be served over rice. (I had NO IDEA how hard that would be, by the way.) What I came up with–after some searching, I tell you what–was this Bruschetta Chicken.
And it was TASTY.
It’s possible that I loved it a bit more than anyone else in my family did, but oh, it was delightful! If you love bruschetta–and you have lovely garden tomatoes and a neighbor with fresh basil to share–make this for dinner. The only changes I made were to sub in flavored bread crumbs for the croutons and to generously season the breasts with garlic pepper seasoning before dipping them in the flour, since several comments noted that the chicken was bland. That absolutely did the trick, making for a flavorful dinner that screamed fresh summer flavors.
