bruchetta chicken

this is one long over due post.  but better late than never, right?  any who – this was one from the archives that i haven’t posted.  it slipped through the cracks and i’m slightly embarrassed… at any rate, here it is.  i’m back in action with more posts and boy does it feel good 🙂

this is another recipe that is simple and so yummy (and perfect for a weeknight dinner).  i don’t remember where exactly i found this recipe but man it’s GOOD.

you’ll need:

  • 1/4 cup sun dried tomato vinaigrette dressing
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 can of diced tomato (i like to used the basil, oregano and garlic kind but any will do)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, or more if you’re a cheese head like myself

preheat oven to 350.  in a zip lock bag, toss in the chicken breasts and dressing.  let the chicken marinade for at least 10 minutes in the fridge.  place chicken in a baking dish and bake for 15 minutes.  discard the extra dressing and bag.  combine the diced tomatoes, fresh basil and mozzarella in a bowl.  after the 15 minutes, flip the chicken and top the chicken with the tomato/basil/cheese mixture.  bake for another 15 minutes.

yes.  it really is that simple.  i served it up with a side of cous cous, which we all know is so simple to make as well.  the dish just looks amazing (and tastes amazing) and requires little effort.  i like that 🙂  yum!
