Recipe: Modified Chicken Bruschetta

Madre recently made a mass purchase of chicken breasts and passed them along to me.
She must have gotten a REAL good sale because she does not even like chicken breasts!
Eager to clear some room out of my freezer, I decided to experiment.
I remembered Brother made us a chicken bruschetta recipe that we all really enjoyed.
I decided to make a hot version of his summer recipe and was pleasantly surprised with the results!
Next time I will make sure company is over so I can show off the yummy masterpiece!

(3) Lbs Chicken Breast (Cleaned)
(1/2) Cup Flour
(1) Egg
(1) Large Onion (Diced)
(1/2) Cup Olive Oil
(1) 16oz Can Chicken Broth
(1/3) Cup White Wine
(1) 24oz Can of Diced Tomatoes
(5) Fresh Basil Leaves
(1) Tbsp Garlic Powder
(1) Tsp Onion Powder
(1) Tbsp Oregano
Salt & Pepper
(4) Tbsp Butter

Dip each breast into the scramble egg and fully coat each one with flour.  Heat up half the olive oil in a non-stick pan.  Brown the chicken.  Let drain on paper towels and sit on the side.
Be careful not to put the flame too high because you don't want the flour to burn!

In a large pan, heat up the remaining olive oil.  Add the onions and cook until they are translucent.  Add the fresh basil and all the other seasonings.  Stir and let cook for an additional minute.  Add the broth and the wine.  Drain the tomatoes and add to the pan.  Bring to a boil and cook for an additional 15 minutes.
Right now blow out all your candles because the aroma that comes off this sauce is unreal!

Line a large baking dish with tin foil.  Melt the butter.  Coat the bottom of the lined pan with the melted butter.  Line the chicken across the bottom of the pan.  With a slotted spoon, scoop out the tomatoes and onions.  Place directly on top of the chicken.  Pour the liquid sauce over the chicken so that it pools around the meat.  Cover with tin foil.  Bake for 30-40 mins at 375*.
I make a border around the pan with cooked broccoli.  That makes for a healthy and yummy side!

Have you or will you make Bruschetta Chicken?


  1. Will Not since me is a vegetarian :) PS you have onion powder? How wonderfully practical that sounds!

    1. You don't have onion powder by you?? It's amazing!!! I put that on almost everything. Soo yum.

  2. This sounds delish! I'm always looking for new, yummy recipes.

    1. Oh its so good. Sneak in the broccoli and make some white rice. Perfection!

  3. Well now you've really confused me, because I thought bruschetta was a vegetarian starter consisting of grilled bread, garlic and tomatoes. Your recipe does sound good, though. You could also trying coating fresh cod loin with that sauce and letting the fish steam in a wok. No further heat required!

    1. Oh, that sounds delicious. I'm definitely trying that!

  4. Wow, you put my slapping a chicken breast on George Foreman and cooking it up to shame lol

    1. I really believe this is gluten free and definitely something you can eat. :)

    2. With my body, won't be tempted though. Sticking to my same old same old at my show

  5. Mmmmmm, my Nana used to make this for me all the time. LOVE- my Mom makes it a lot too.
    Great, great choice.

    1. Oh it's SO yummy. I'm super jealous that your Nana and mom make this for you. :)

  6. I've been on a chicken rut lately when it comes to cooking. This sounds like a good one to make for the family. Thanks for sharing, Jax:)

    1. Oh, it really is delicious! Perfect to get out of your rut. :)

  7. Yum...this sounds delicious! I can almost smell it!

  8. This sounds delicious. I would love to try this.

  9. I've never made it but I ate it where I used to work. I completely forgot it was a thing!

  11. I've never tried it...I am so not a chicken lover..I like it grilled outside and some fried....not much tho. My hubby would probably love this so I'll make it for him sometime. :)

  12. Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity, I can help you solve any problem you are having
