4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half, 1/2 cup vegetables, and 1 tablespoon cheese)

This bruschetta recipe departs from the expected version, calling for chicken as the base instead of bread. Use your summer garden vegetables for the topping.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Combine garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl; sprinkle chicken with garlic powder mixture. Place the chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray, and broil for 6 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Remove the chicken from pan, and keep warm.

Step 3

Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt, mushrooms, zucchini, and minced garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Add 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, tomato, onion, basil, and vinegar; sauté 3 minutes. Serve the vegetable mixture over chicken; sprinkle with cheese.

I make this dish over pasta. Chop and saute the chicken with the veggies and pour it all over whole wheat pasta. As long as the "sauce" is increased it's really tasty!

I discovered this recipe because I wanted to try zucchini. This is fantastic! It's a very adaptable recipe. Since I'm not a big fan of mushrooms I simply leave them out. Occasionally, I'll add some yellow or orange bell peppers and even some sliced carrots. I agree with another reviewer that garlic bread is a must!

Tried this last night. Made some variations due what I had on hand. First mistake, I asked husband to lay out chicken, instead of breast he did the pkg of hindquarters. Used italian seasoning cause I didn't have basil. Used light vingerette balasamic dressing 2T instead of 4. Used fresh tomato from garden, normal tomato. And next time will add some yellow peppers for some color. I sided it with brocolli. Definitey putting this in my menu rotation. Fall and winter, oven cooked; Spring and summer will probably grill the chicken. Fast and easy even the first time.

This was a nice use of chicken and fresh summer vegetables. I, too, added a few more tomatoes as well as additional basil. Instead of broiling the chicken, we grilled it. Garlic bread is a must-have to round out the flavors1

This was absolutely fantastic. I used a can of tomatoes and reserved half the liquid and threw it in with the veggies and balsamic which made it a bit saucier. Based on previous suggestions I also marinated the chicken and grilled rather than broiled it. Served with garlic bread this was a quick, flavorful and delicious meal.
