Grilled Bruschetta Chicken
Here’s another great recipe that my friend, Julia, shared with me – Grilled Bruschetta Chicken from Kraft Foods. I declared it International Night in our house and made Grilled Bruschetta Chicken, guacamole and fried rice for dinner. :o) This chicken dish is easy and fast, a great last minute entree you can throw together in 30 minutes or less. It’s so easy, that I don’t even follow the recipe measurements; I just eyeball and dump things together, depending on how many I’m cooking for. So here we go…
You only need 5 ingredients: chicken, sun-dried tomato vinaigrette (or just Italian dressing if that’s what you’ve got), basil, fresh tomato and mozzarella cheese. First, pour some dressing over the chicken.
While the chicken is marinating, wash and chop a tomato and fresh basil.
Combine chopped tomato, basil, mozzarella cheese and a squirt or two of dressing.
Heat an indoor or outdoor grill and place chicken on grill. Now, the recipe says to cook the chicken breasts for 6 min on the 1st side and 8 min on the 2nd. I buy the 10# bag of Perdue Perfect Portions Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts form Costco. Each piece of chicken is fairly thin and weighs approx. 5 oz. So I only need to cook them 3-4 minutes a side.
Flip the chicken breasts over, cover with your tomato/basil/cheese/dressing mixture and finish cooking. If you are cooking on an outdoor grill, flip the chicken over onto a piece of foil and then top with your mixture. The foil will catch any topping from running off the chicken and going down into your grill.
TA-DA! That’s it!
