Grilled Chicken Bruschetta

What a great idea, it's healthy, it's fresh, it's delicious and it just screams summer.

This recipe comes from this fantastic recipe blog http://www.skinnytaste.com. Seriously everything this lady posts looks amazing and the recipes are mostly very healthy. So I recommend you check it out.

So my new favorite summer dish - Grilled Chicken Bruschetta

Ingredients:
3 vine ripe tomatoes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 tbsp fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 tbsp extra virgin oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Kosher Salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
3 oz part skim Mozzarella, diced
1.25 lbs (8 thin sliced) chicken cutlets

(I'm not too worried about exact measurements - and I used chicken breast because that's what I had in the fridge and I just used the regular tomatoes I already had , I don't have Kosher Salt but it still turned out fantastic)

Directions
Combine onion, olive oil, balsamic, salt and pepper. Set aside a few minutes
Chop tomatoes and place in a large bowl. Combine with garlic, basil, onion-balsamic combo. Set aside and let sit for at least 10 min. or overnight. Add the cheese when ready to serve.

Grill your chicken, best if only seasoned with something plain like salt and pepper.

Put the bruschetta on top of the chicken (that way the chicken absorbs the taste from the bruschetta) and serve.

For pictures and the recipe you can also see it on skinnytaste.com

Enjoy
