Grilled Bruschetta Chicken is a summer staple in my house. We love it in the summer when tomatoes are the ripest – they’re definitely the star of the show. To quote my husband, “You could serve this over cardboard, and it would be good!” For more healthy bruschetta recipes, try Bruschetta with Tomato and Basil, Naked Turkey Bruschetta Burger, and Grilled Salmon with Avocado Bruschetta.

Grilled Chicken Bruschetta

What is Bruschetta Chicken?

Bruschetta in Italian is an antipasto made of grilling bread, rubbed with garlic, and topped with olive oil and salt. Tomatoes and other toppings are often added like this simple tomato mixture that I served over grilled chicken. This recipe takes a classic Italian appetizer and turns it into a main dish.

How to Prep Ahead

Make the tomato mixture the night before or early in the morning and let all the flavors marinate. Then when you are ready to eat, grill the chicken for a quick weeknight meal.

What to Serve with Bruschetta Chicken

Serve Bruschetta Chicken with some crusty bread to soak up the juices, or just have it over a big salad or some zoodles. Some other side dish ideas are:


  • For a dairy-free recipe, omit the cheese.
  • Swap vine ripe tomatoes for cherry tomatoes.
  • Sub balsamic for red wine vinegar.
  • If you don’t have a grill, use a grill pan instead.
  • Serve over your favorite white fish or shrimp.

  1. Made as directed. Had chicken breasts which I pounded thin and brined to make them juicier. Wonderful summer recipe!

  2. I have tried many of your recipes and they are all exceptional.  Please keep them coming..  The bruschetta chicken will even be better when tomatoes are in season.. 👍🏼👍🏼

  3. I am making this tonight and can’t figure out how you come up with 38.5 g of fat?? I would think that skinless chicken breasts (8) with only 1 tbsn of oil and the small amount of cheese would be much lower??

    As a 92 year old  raised in a family of outstanding Italian- American women schooled in Italian Cuisine Recipes I was delighted to read.. on and on… the many positive comments submitted by your vast following of devoted aficionados, Gina.. ..  
    This super delicious chicken bruschetta topped with a yummy tomato  “sauce” is, in fact, topped with a traditional tomato salad which brought back childhood family  memories in which as children we would compete with one another to be the last to spoon out our portion of tomatoes so we could enjoy the lions’s share of the 
    remaining scrumptious juices in the bowl by dropping in  a few pieces of Italian Bread to sponge-up the amazing remains!!   Your great Chicken Bruschetta Recipe is, as your fans have discovered, a super healthy and versatile addition to the many ways in which its topping can be used… Some have asked about its use on barbequed beef… I’d recommend it as a side dish salad.. to accompany turkey and/or chicken burgers..
    As a first time viewer… You, dear Gina and your website  made my day…Thank You!!!

  5. I made it without garlic because I didn’t realize we were out, but it was still delicious! My husband said it was the best thing I’ve made in quite a while. I’ll definitely make this again. 

  6. Really enjoyed this. I like garlic so I used two large garlic cloves and it was too much, should have just used regular size. Added a little olive oil to the bruschetta. Delicious.

    This was awesome and easy! I can see using this to top all sorts of things! Definitely will make again and again!

  8. This was SO good!  Because I had time, I did marinate the chicken in olive oil, balsamic vinegar & basil.  We served it over spinach & arugula salad.  It was a big hit with the family.   

  9. This looks so good. I love ST, but this website is overrun by pop ups and ads! I wish I could see the recipe fully but there’s pop ups galore. 

  10. Soooooo GOOD!  And easy.   And quick. My fussy family loved it.  I predict we’ll be having this a lot this summer.  

  11. I love your site and recipes…however, it is so frustrating with your pop up ads that interfere with reading the recipes.  They will NOT remove even with clicking the X….I have left other sites for this reason.  I hopefully will not have to leave yours.  What do you suggest?
    Thank you.

  12. Super good and simple recipe! I cooked the chicken in a pan and tossed the bruschetta tomato mix (without cheese) into the hot pan after the chicken was done for a minute or so, and served the chicken, warmed bruschetta mix, and cool cheese over spaghetti. Delicious!

  13. I made this for the first time tonight and it was amaaaaazing. Only chance I made was to cook the chicken in a hot pan on the stove for 2 mins on each side since it’s raining here so no grill tonight. The bruschetta was better than I’ve had in many restaurants! I’ll definitely make this again. I paired it with the pancetta Brussels sprouts from this site and it made a delicious dinner. 

  14. This was so good. It will become part of our summer rotation! Even my husband who hates tomatoes thought it was good!

  15. Very Very Very Tasty!!!! Served it with Saute’d Spinach and Mashed Potatoes. We were in Food Heaven! Make this ASAP!

  16. I love the flavors, and freshness of this dish! so east and flavourfull
    make me drolling so much

  17. Oh. My. Goodness. This recipe was fantastic. I don’t cook often because I cook just for myself, and I hate having to use an oven in the summer. This is the right amount of light, satisfying, and makes a super great, super quick dinner for summer weeknights.

    1. its 3 for blue and purple and 6 for green because chicken isn’t a zero point food on the green plan. 

  18. I like the helpful information you provide in your, this will definitely be something I will do in the future.

  19. This look delicious! What could I serve this with for a Girls Dinner Party (& of course everyone is very health conscious)? Its coming into winter here so I thought roasted potatoes but I feel I need another side? Any suggestions?
    Thank you

      1. Love it! I’m trying this recipe for the first time tonight and we’re actually having the roasted parmesan green beans with it that you suggested above (and crusty rolls).

  20. I can not bear to see it, it feels like to taste it. I hope to try to make it at home, thanks for the recipe Gina.

  21. I’ve made this recipe dozens of times last summer; now that it is starting to get warmer again here in Canada I decided to try it out again. This recipe is absolutely delicious and is amazing at being guilt-free for when you want (need) seconds. Keeps me full from dinner until breakfast the next morning and is so easy to make. Thanks for sharing!

  22. This was delicious and easy. The only thing I would change is that I was using regular boneless chicken breasts…. Next time I will butterfly them. Other than that, I wouldn’t change a thing!

  23. This is the first Skinnytaste meal I tried. My husband, who is pretty meh about tomatoes, LOVED it. As did I. I can’t wait for the good weather so we can have this at it’s prime again!

  24. Made this tons of times and this cold weather has me wishing it were warm out!! Perfect healthy summer dish! Can’t think of a better way to enjoy grilled chicken and not needing to marinate is a plus.

  28. I made a bed of mixed baby spinach and arugula with a little drizzle of balsamic glaze then topped it with the Grilled Chicken Bruschetta. I can always count on your recipes when I want to try something new, and this was just perfect for our hot summer night. In addition to tasting great, my husband even commented on how pretty (colorful) the plate looked!

    This was great!! So easy. I used a big tomato from my garden, and fresh basil from my windowsill. I’ll bet this good on other meats also. Maybe we’ll try it on swordfish next.

  30. This was delicious. I would spring for the ripest red sweet “on the vine” tomatoes. I used regular tomatoes and it was delicious – I can just imagine how good it would be with sweet vine tomatoes!

  31. This was amazing. I am on weight watchers. I am only one in house on the diet. This was amazing for all. My family and I loved it. I love bruschetta and the addition of the cheese was awesome. Having it over grilled chicken was amazing. Was very new and refreshing change to grilled chicken. I will definitely put this on my list of things to make.

  32. Made this tonight for dinner and it was delicious! My husband and I both loved it. Perfect for the hot Texas summer when you don’t want to fire up the stove.

  33. This smells divine and I am grilling up the chicken now!  My tomato mixture is somewhat watery.  Did I do something wrong or miss a step?  Thanks!

  34. I have been following the Weight Watchers program for a little over 3 years and have lost over 130 pounds. I could have never done it without your wonderful recipes Gina. This one was so simple and so yummy! Everyone in the family loved it and wanted to know how soon it will be before I make it again. Thanks so much Gina and please keep your wonderful recipes coming!!

  35. This was delicious. The chicken turned out quite tender on the grill pan and then with the topping it was so light but flavorful. I actually forgot to add the cheese and nobody missed it – which made it even healthier.

  37. Gina, What would I do without you?! My family eats Skinnytaste at least 2 to 3 times a week. When I’m sharing recipes with friends I hear, “Oh, that sounds amazing! Where did you get the recipe? Let me guess…..Skinnytaste? ” Yup. It’s easy to eat healthy when the food is delicious. Your recipes are also great to regulate portion control. I don’t do Weight Watchers anymore but I still try to stick to the points so it’s great that you have them listed. We are having this tonight minus the cheese along with your Spiralized Carrot Salad with Lemon and Dijon. Not a traditional pairing but hey, it’s what I’m hungry for. Thanks so much for your passion for great food and eliminating the guilt. You are my hero! (Fast and Slow Cookbook is solid!)

  38. This was sooo good! Loved how easy and simple this was, but had so much flavor.. Boyfriends wants me to make it again!

  40. I’m obsessed with your recipes Gina! We had this last night and it was sooo good! We had it over baby spinach with just a little added balsamic vinaigrette that I made. I’m trying to keep my diet relatively low carb and I didn’t miss the bread at all!

  41. This is definitely on the summer rotation menu! We marinated the chicken with a dry pinot/basil mixture and grilled over applewood briquettes. The smokiness of the chicken was awesome pared with the sweetness of the bruschetta and even though we doubled the recipe there was nothing left. Gina, as always, incredible!

  42. I have to comment that dish was amazing!! So fresh and light. I don’t eat cheese so I omitted it and still loved the recipe so much!! Had it last night for dinner and then today for lunch as leftovers so yummy!! Thanks for all of your great recipes they have all been winners in my families book!!

  43. This dish was wonderful! I didn’t realize how easy it was to make fresh bruschetta. I loved it, as did my husband and picky 3-year-old. Definitely going in the summer rotation!

  45. Just made this and it was fantastic! I paired it with a simple arugula salad with lemon and olive oil and it was the perfect summer dinner!

  46. I don’t like eating tomatoes (it’s a texture thing, I don’t mind the flavour), but I’m actually tempted to try this. Possibly if I go visit my parents I’ll make it for them.

I didn’t have any mozzarella, other than a string cheese, so I used that on my portion I have for today’s lunch. Last night I gave it a sprinkle of parmesan. Tasted great all of the ways!!!!!

  70. This is one of my favorite Skinnytaste recipes ever! Easy prep with absolutely fantastic flavor! Will make over and over this summer…

  71. I am making this for the second time in two weeks as directed in the recipe; just love it. Will be trying the grilled peaches today, too.

  72. I'm going to try these this coming week. My husband and I have each lost 20 lbs on WW and I refer to your site all the time for yummy but healthy recipes. 😀 We have a tropical vacation/business trip in 2 weeks so it's major focus time in our house. ha ha. Thanks Gina!

  73. I just got a spiralizer and am loving it! I think I'll serve this over some zucchini noodles – yummy!

  74. I love all things bruschetta, so I will definitely have to try this one out!


    Come see where the Mr. and I dined last night!

  76. This looks incredibly delicious. Even if it would taste half as good as it looks on these pictures, it still beats what I had for dinner three hours ago. I'm definitely going to give this a try!

    1. no, bruschetta is the tomato mixture. You can serve it on bread or whatever else you wish, in this case chicken. You are wrong.

      1. Actually bruschetta is an Italian dish that is toasted or grilled bread topped with olive oil, tomatoes, basil etc.  It is NOT the topping- at least that is true in Italian cuisine.

    So… OMG… totally yummy! Made it for dinner tonight and it was PERFECT! Here are some tweeks. First… after cutting tomatoes, lightly salt and put in drainer. The salt will pull out some liquid and help when mixing with the other liquids… otherwise onion/oi/vinegar/tomato mix can get a bit watered down. Also, I herbed up my chicken cutlets so they held some good taste on their own. Last, instead of cubes of cheese, I cut thin pieces of mozzarella and let it melt over cutlets. I still went according to the total amount in the recipe, but this way you get cheese in every bite and it's melted goodness gives the chicken some extra yumminess. I paired with green beans and a grilled herb bread w/side of roasted garlic. OMG… DELISH!! Thank you for the great recipe!!!

  79. made this last night and it was phenomenal. cut weight watchers mozzarella string cheese into chunks and added it to the bruschetta before marinating in the fridge for a few hours.. served with side salad and fresh corn on the cob.. amazing.

  80. I made this for dinner tonight and it was great! I used fresh mozzarella and served it over a big plate of field greens. Question…..are the measurements for the vinegar and olive oil correct? In the photo, it looks like there is a lot more than just 1 TBS each.

    Hi Gina,
    I've made several of your recipes and loved them all! I made this last week and my husband could not stop raving about how much he loved it. He can't wait for me to make it again! 🙂

  82. I made this for dinner last night (minus the mozzarella because I didn't have any) and it was great! I'm going to try your chicken with spinach on top tonight. You make eating healthy so easy and delicious!

  83. Just have to say Triple awesome!!!! I followed this dish to the T and it came out perfect for a low carb late dinner. Everyone must try!

  84. Two thumbs up! i tried it and it was sooo easy to make and delicious. I used parsley instead of basil because Its available to me in the garden in the back yard but everything else was the same. 😀

    I made this last night, and I concur – DELISH! Rather than buying a full ball of mozzarella, I used 3 individual mozzarella cheese sticks (available in singles in the cheese section!)

    Leftovers were my lunch today, the chicken is wonderful cold served over lettuce as kind of a 'Bruschetta Chicken Salad'

    LOVE your site Gina!

  86. This was wonderful! My husband loves it, too. Used seasoning salt and some lemon pepper on the chicken. We took leftovers to work through the week. This will be on a regular rotation throughout the summer!

    1. I added a spring mix salad with strawberries and blueberries with a light olive oil/balsamic vinager dressing!!

  87. This was delicious and so healthy! Do you think the tomato mixture could be frozen (without the chicken and cheese)so that it could be made in a larger batch?

  92. Had this last night. Can't wait to make it again. I LOVE your site. I love to cook and am following weight watchers. Your site has been amazing and huge part of my success. My whole family is enjoying the healthy meals. Thanks a million!!!!

  93. made this tonight – great summery, fresh flavours. Served it with grilled corn, asparagus and mushrooms.

  94. I made this last week and it was fantastic! New family favorite! I melted the mozzarella on the chicken instead of adding to the tomatoes then topped with the tomato mixture! Served with a side of whole wheat pasta tossed eith EVOO and garlic! So yummy!

  95. I made this tonight – AWESOME!! Rave reviews from the hubby, too! Absolutely perfect spring/summer dish. Had it with asparagus on the side. Delish, Delish, Delish!!!

  96. DE-FRICKIN-LICIOUS! Wow – this was the most amazing dish I've really ever made. I can't believe I didn't think of it myself. My husband and kids and I all loved this, and I will be making it over and over again. THANK YOU!!

  97. This was so easy and delicious! Love the freshness of it. The bruschetta was perfectly seasoned and flavorful. I will make this often! Thank you!

  98. SO SO SO SO good! Even better cold the next day – the liquid from the oil/vinegar/tomatoes made it sorta pasta salad-like, but without all the carbs from the pasta!

  99. This was so good. So glad I only made enough for 1 person because I would have eaten more. I love red onions. Will definitely be making this a lot.

  100. this was DELICIOUS!!! i couldn't believe that it was only 7WWp! awesome 🙂 served this with sugar snap peas and some kale chips!

  101. Made this tonight and hubby and I LOVED it. (Sadly my picky 7 year old won't touch tomatoes so he had his grilled chicken with some "garlic" a.k.a. cajun seasoning on it). We aren't a big fan of red onions, so next time I'll cut them back a bit. I also added an extra 1/2 tablespoon or so balsamic because I love balsamic. This recipe is going in my regular rotation.

  102. I can't wait to make this! For the last 3 weeks, I have made something different from your website every night for dinner and we have loved everything! Thank you 🙂

  103. Making this tonight!! Can't wait! 🙂 Loving Skinnytaste and WW Pts+! Wonderful companions… :))

    I made this tonight and it's absolutely WONDERFUL!
    My husband loved it and he's not watching his weight which is a SCORE in my opinion!

    It was really good.. the tomato mixture reminds me of the Brushetta Chicken that TGIFriday's makes..

  109. Made this tonight for my roommates. Definite winner! I can't tell you how much your site is helping us poor college kids. We're eating healthier, losing weight, and learning how to cook a variety of foods. We've been making one new meal from your website every day this week. Definitely added some much needed variety.

  110. I made this this past weekend for a group dinner (there were 11 of us). Everyone loved it. I also included some boneless/skinless thighs for the folks that don't care for breasts.

    It was a huge hit!


  111. this was a fantastic recipe! instead of mozzarella, we used 1/3 cup of reduced fat feta cheese… my husband loved it!

  112. Delicious! I used cherry tomatoes (because they are my favorite) and I pressed the garlic (3 cloves) instead of mincing. My boyfriend is not a huge fan of tomatoes, but he said he could eat this every night. My new favorite meal!

  113. I made this recipe the other night and it was delicious. I have fresh basil and HUGE Roma tomatoes in my garden. I broiled the chicken instead of grilling it because my husband always overcooks the meat when he grills it. And I accidentally left out the cheese, but I loved it! A great summer seasonal recipe. Thanks!

  114. We loved this! Thanks so much for this recipe. So simple and so easy and a real family pleaser!! Will make again and again.

  115. REALLY yummy…I paired this with the cauliflower fritters and what a great,filling meal. I am not on WW nor do I have to "watch my weight" but I love,love your site for healthy, fresh ideas…THANK YOU and please keep it up!

  116. Has anyone tried this in the oven or skillet? We don't have a grill or a foreman. It looks so delicious!

    Had this for dinner a few weeks ago and it was just what we needed after a few days in a row of heavy meals. Very light and refreshing. Thank you!

  118. Delicious! You have so many gorgeous looking recipes but I only ever want to comment on them after I've tried them. I think this is the third one I've tried and the third time that I've shouted out "YUM!".

    This topping is almost identical to a fresh (uncooked) pasta sauce I make so I thought your idea to put it over chicken vs. pasta was genius!

    Thanks for another great meal.

  119. This was the first recipe of yours that i have made and it was fantastic! Super easy, very flavorful and very filling. I loved it and my husband who doesn't like tomatoes liked it as well! Thank you so much. Tomorrow I will be making the carnitas 🙂

  120. Hi..I just wanted to say, I made this for dinner tonight and it was amazing!! I cannot wait to try more of your recipes! Great work!!

  121. I made this last night with a few changes so I wouldn't have to go to the store. I used red wine vinegar,oregano, and reduced fat feta. I'm not sure what that does to the points, but the taste was great! Can't wait to make your version though!
    Thanks for all you do!

  122. Made this tonight! It was delicious! Thank you for always providing the lighter side to fancy up chicken. 🙂

  123. I have prepared your recipes for 3-4 dinners per week, and left overs for dinner.. That and 4 days a week at a gym,, I have lost 19 1lbs in 3 months,, about 1.5-2 lbs per week.. Thank you for your great, flavorful & healthy recipes GINA your hard work is applauded!!

  124. Made this tonight. Served it over couscous and it was delicious!

    I didn't have any fresh basil so I used fresh thyme and it still tasted like bruschetta!

  125. Just had to stop by and tell you that I made this last night and we loved it! I totally forgot to put the cheese in before I served it, but it was still fantastic. Can't wait to get some tomatoes and basil out of my garden…we'll be having this all summer! Thanks!

  126. Made this over the weekend and it was delicious! Must admit my 2 year old wouldn't eat the bruschetta though so he dipped his chicken in ketchup 🙂 I loved it and it will become a "regular" in our household.

  127. I made this a few nights ago and oh my it was heavenly!! I bought the ingredients so I could make it again tomorrow. I'm on a low-carb lifestyle because of my medicine and this recipe is a winner! 🙂 Bravo Gina!

  128. Made this tonight — well did the bruschetta in advance last night — it was excellent! Coated the chicken with a little garlic powder and pepper and baked it — because we were having a thunderstorm and grilling didn't sound too appealing at the time!

    I must say that your website has quickly become my favorite go-to place for recipes. I was raised a Southern girl and was only taught to cook things using butter, cream of mushroom soup, and Ritz crackers. I needed to break out of the monotony! Gina, your vision for healthy, incredible flavors has empowered me in the kitchen! I have loved every recipe of yours I have tried, and plan to keep it up! My husband is a HUGE fan of you, as well, which makes him a bigger fan of me : ) Thanks so much for your blog!

  131. made this last night
    fantastic! husband loved it as well! I could just eat that brushetta outta the bowl!

  132. I made this a couple of days ago, and wow! It was delicious and super easy. I doubled the recipe for the brushetta. It goes great on crachers or toast! Yum! Definitely a keeper!

  133. Made this tonight – it was amazing. I can't wait for the left overs tomorrow. I served it over whole grain penne and scaled back just a bit on the chicken per serving.

  134. I made this tonight for dinner, and it's definitely a keeper! My husband asked me to make it again next week. Our kiddos won't eat tomatoes, so we had a lot left over. It tastes great by itself too for a quick snack. Yum!!

  135. I made this the other night and my family LOVED it!!! So simple and so easy. We will be having this several times this summer. Thanks:D

    This looks absolutely delicious! It's recipes like this that make it so much easier to change the way we eat and change the way we live. . . Thank you.

  137. This was delicious and my family loved it! I used a little left over brushetta on top of greens the next day for lunch and it was great too! I'll be making this all summer since I have tomatoes and basil growing like crazy. Thanks for another great recipe.

  138. Just put together for tomorrows BBQ along with the String bean salad with black olives and chopped egg!

    Tomorrow I am baking the lemon cheesecake yogurt cupcakes!

    Love all your recipes Gina!

    Cant wait for tomorrow!

  139. Gina, this was a perfect summer dish – easy, no cooking required, and delicious. I had with chicken grilled on my george foreman, on top of a pita bread crisped up in the oven. I made it with fresh mozzarella since I had some. Making it again for tonight. Thanks a million for all that you do, you've helped me to lose about 20 pounds.

    This looks so fresh and delicious. My tomatoes are just starting to get ripe. I am looking forward to making this soon.

  142. Gina, you've done it again! This looks amazing. I'm putting this on my grocery list for dinner next week. Thanks!

  143. Thank you so much for this recipe! I made a slightly different version of it for my family last night and they all just LOVED it. I put diced up grilled chicken and a tsp of low fat mozzarella cheese on toasted sandwich thins that I cut into quarters(each thin makes 8 pieces)then melted that under the broiler and topped with bruschetta mixture. SO yummy!

  144. This was amazingly good! I thought I'd try it because it looked simple with simple ingredients, and I was feeling lazy today, but I wasn't expecting amazing, I was expecting:, another attempt at healthy meals, which is always plain, dry chicken with light flavor added- healthy and plain. Boy was I wrong! This was so flavorful, moist, delicious, and soo simple! I'll probably be making this every week =o) I didn't have any cheese, so I skipped that part, I'm sure that will make it even more amazing next time, thanks Gina!

  145. seriously so good! both me and my husband loved it, thanks what a great dish, served it with whole wheat penne over it.

  146. Simply fabulous! Made this tonight with italian rice and a roasted onion, garlic brussel sprout dish. Heaven! I increased all the bruschetta ingredients and served over grilled chicken that I did on my foreman grill. Amazing. Best bruschetta I've ever made. Keep the recipes coming Gina!

  147. oh my goodness! made this for dinner tonight and it was absolutely delicious! my six year old thanked me for dinner (unusual!) and told me it was the best dinner I have ever made!

    No need to seed the tomatoes, I through it all in there.

    I have yet to find a part skim "fresh" mozzarella, I wish someone would make one!! Until then, yes I used store bought.

    I'm glad you liked my little story about Madison poking holes in my tomatoes 🙂 Little moments I will not forget when I come back to this recipe!

    I weigh chicken raw and cooked but I use the nutritional info for the cooked weight. General rule is 4 oz raw = 3 oz cooked.

    I love when people comment that they lost weight using my recipes!!! Makes my day!!

  150. This looks fantastic! I have chicken breast thawing right now, wasn't sure what to do with them but now I know! Thanks so much for all of your fabulous recipes. 🙂

  151. Gina this looks so delicious!!

    Quick question – I always forget do we measure chicken cooked or raw? Would it be 4 oz cooked?

    thx as always for everything you do!!!!

    ps..I'm now down 50lbs and have been following your site for a year 🙂

  152. Can't wait to make this dish…I LOVE anything Italian or Italian-inspired. Your pictures are fantastic as usual. Thanks, Gina. 🙂

  153. Oh sure, blame it on the baby!! (My dog eats my tomatoes the day before they are ready to be picked!) Looks absolutely wonderful – just like summer.

  154. @Gina:
    The comment about your child just made my day….It has been an awful day at home, at work…BUT, picturing a sweet baby poking a tomato…so much fun..made me appreciate the good things around me.
    BTW: I will cook this tonight…minus the holed-tomatoe 🙂

    Any dish with tomato, basil and mozzarella just screams "summer" to me. Can't wait to try it.

  156. Timely post and recipe. We have about 20 tomato plants growing. Nothing better than fresh, home grown tomatoes in Bruschetta.

  157. Looks soooo good! I think I know what I'm making for dinner tonight. What a great dish for summertime!!!!

  158. I used to make this and serve it over pasta. DELICIOUS!!! Do you seed the tomatoes first or can you put it all in?

    This dish looks amazing, I heard bout your site at one of my weight watchers's meeting. So glad I found it, always looking for healthy dishes to make.

  160. Love this recipe!! Will be trying it this week. PERFECT for my over abundance of homegrown tomato's and basil we seem to have here in the last couple of weeks. Thank you!!
