How to make Bruschetta Chicken
Cooking this dish is really quite simple. The key is to make certain that you cook the chicken all the way through on the grill or stove top.
Season Chicken – Before cooking, brush both sides of the chicken with olive oil and seasoning. (Picture 1)
Cook Chicken – Place on medium-high heat to cook. You’ll want the chicken to reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees to be done completely. (Picture 2 and 3)

Tips and Tricks to making the best Bruschetta Chicken!
- Make certain that you don’t overcook the chicken. You don’t want to have dry chicken for this recipe at all!
- If you have tomatoes from your garden, use them! Garden fresh tomatoes are absolutely the best!
- Once you make the bruschetta, let it rest in the fridge for a little bit of time beforehand. That way the flavor has time to mesh together a bit more to create a truly flavorful dish.
- If you do happen to have any leftover, try to store the chicken and the bruschetta separate. The bruschetta will have juices from the tomato and you don’t want to take the chance of it making the chicken soggy.
- If you are short on time go for store bought bruschetta, it’s not as good as homemade but it’s totally a time saver!
What to serve with Bruschetta Chicken?
Anything that you normally like to eat chicken goes great with this dish as well.
How to reheat Bruschetta Chicken
Reheating this dish is simple! Just remember to reheat the chicken on its own without having any of the bruschetta on top. And while some people might not mind their bruschetta being warmed up, it’s best if it’s served room temperature or chilled.
