Frequently Asked Questions FAQ’s

How do you butterfly chicken? Slice one chicken breast in half lengthwise so you have two thin cutlets.

Why do you let chicken rest at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before cooking? Cold chicken will seize up in a hot pan, so letting the chicken rest for 10-15 minutes before cooking will yield more tender, juicy chicken.

What can you serve this with? Try my Lebanese Rice, Mashed Potatoes or Zucchini Salad.

How to Make Easy Bruschetta Chicken

Marinate the Chicken

Add the butterflied chicken cutlets to a mixing bowl. Add the avocado oil, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, kosher salt and cracked black pepper. Coat the chicken well, cover and refrigerate for 15-30 minutes.

Make the Bruschetta Style Topping

Combine diced tomatoes, diced sweet onion, minced garlic, basil chiffonade, balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, kosher salt and cracked black pepper. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Saute the Chicken

Remove the chicken from the fridge and let it rest at room temperature for 10-15 minutes. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Lightly spray it with nonstick avocado oil spray. Add the marinated chicken. Saute for 5-6 minutes per side or until cooked through.

The internal temperature should reach 165 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure doneness. Cooking time will vary based on the thickness of the chicken.

Reduce the heat to medium, top the chicken with a slice of fresh mozzarella then cover with a lid and let the mozzarella melt. Once melted, remove the pan from the heat add the fresh bruschetta topping and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. Serve and enjoy!
