Instructions


To make the Bruschetta topping

  • Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve.


To prepare the chicken breast

1. Combine all ingredients in gallon size ziplock bag and seal. Shake to coat the chicken evenly. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 1 hour. For best results, assemble the chicken and marinade the morning of or the night before you plan to have this meal.

Grill directions 

  • Let meat sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before grilling.
  • Grill for about 5 minutes per side until no longer pink in the middle.


Bake directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Remove chicken from bag and place in baking dish; discard marinade.
  • Cover with foil and bake in oven for 30-40 minutes (longer if you are using larger chicken breasts) or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.


Top with the bruschetta salsa, Parmesan cheese and garnish with fresh basil leaves. Option to serve over a bed of spaghetti squash.

Enjoy!
