Make the tomatoes the night before or early in the morning and let all the flavors marinate, then when you are ready to eat grill some chicken and you have yourself a quick weeknight meal.

What is Bruschetta Chicken?

Bruschetta in Italian is actually an antipasto from consisting of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt. Often, tomatoes and other toppings are added like this simple tomato topping I used on my grilled chicken. This recipe takes a classic Italian appetizer and turns it into a main dish.

The tomatoes are the star of the show, to quote my husband “you could serve this over cardboard and it would be good!” We love it in the summer when tomatoes are ripest, serve this with some crusty bread to soak up the juice if you wish, or just have it over a great big salad.
