What you need for this Chicken Bruschetta recipe

Chicken fillets: I use plant-based products and these replace our toast or bread which are usually used for Bruschetta.

Tomatoes: You can use any tomatoes that you like, but I find Roma tomatoes to be the best. Leftover tomatoes from the garden are also great.

Garlic, olive oil, balsamic And onions are amazing ingredients that add a ton of flavor.

Basil And Oregano: these add another layer of flavor, so good.

In a bowl, combine the tomatoes, remaining garlic, olive oil, balsamic, basil, onions and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Finally, to assemble the Chicken Bruschetta, use 1 tablespoon of filling and cover a chicken fillet with it. Leftover bruschetta topping can easily be used other days for bread, chicken or mushrooms.

Tips and tricks

Keep in mind that the cooking time for chicken fillets will depend on their size and thickness. My plant-based chicken was excellent at about 4 minutes per side, but for you it may be different.

To save time, you can prepare the filling the day before so the flavors are even more pronounced and bold.

If you like a little heat, you can add hot sauce or cracked pepper to the topping.
