Whole30 Certified Coach Kimberly Smith's family loves bruschetta so this Bruschetta Chicken is a no brainer and a crowd pleaser. A couple of years ago, she had an abundance of cherry tomatoes growing in her yard and they made tomato everything. Bruschetta on toast, bruschetta on fish, bruschetta on salad, bruschetta on eggs...you get the picture. Kimberly says, "I don't think I've ever gotten tired of tomatoes, even eating them every day throughout the summer!"
3-4 organic, skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 Tbsp ghee or olive oil
1 pint grape tomatoes (quartered)
1 shallot (minced)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
2 Tbsp basil (chopped)
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350°F
Cut the chicken breasts in half lengthwise (alternately, you can put the chicken breast between plastic wrap and pound it to a thickness of about ½ inch, then cut the chicken breast in half).
Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides of each piece of chicken.
In a medium sized bowl, make the bruschetta by adding tomatoes, shallots, garlic, basil, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and salt. Stir to combine and set bruschetta aside.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat, add ghee or oil.
Once oil is hot, place the chicken in the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes until nicely browned. Make sure the chicken isn’t overcrowded in the skillet. You may need to cook the chicken in 2 batches.
Flip the chicken and cook 1 more minute. (The chicken will not be cooked all the way through at this point).
Remove chicken from the skillet and place on a sheet tray. Spoon bruschetta on top of each chicken breast.
Place sheet tray in oven and cook for 10-15 minutes.
Remove sheet tray from the oven and serve.
