You know, I’ve always seen recipes for Bruschetta….but honestly, no clue what that even was or meant! Nerdy as I am, I Googled it, and the definition is as follows: “Toasted Italian bread drenched in olive oil and served typically with garlic or tomatoes”. Now THAT sounds yummy!!! So put that into a chicken version, and VIOLA – you’ve got an extremely tasty, Italian-themed meal!
4 Chicken Breasts, boneless, skinless
1/2 cup Flour
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, shredded
1/4 cup Croutons, crushed (garlic is best)
1 tbsp. Butter, melted
2 Tomatoes, large, diced
3 tbsp. Basil, minced
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 375 Degrees. Spray a 9×13 baking pan.
Beat the Eggs in a shallow bowl. Put the Flour in a separate shallow bowl. Dip each Chicken Breast into the flour, then the eggs, then place chicken in the baking dish.
Mix the Parmesan cheese, Croutons and Butter together, then sprinkle over the chicken. Loosely cover with foil and bake for 30-45 minutes, or until cooked through.
Mix the Tomatoes and other remaining ingredients together, and spoon over chicken. Return to oven for another 5-7 minutes, or until tomato mixture is heated through.
