This quick and easy bruschetta chicken dinner recipe is ready in under 30 minutes and is kid-friendly too! Whip this up and watch a favorite Christmas movie for a fun family night.
My husband comes from a huge Italian family and our love of Italian food is REAL! I love finding a twist on a favorite recipe that I can whip up in under 30 minutes for a quick and easy dinner recipe. We love incorporating my husband’s heritage into our own family traditions so it’s become a favorite activity to whip up this bruschetta chicken recipe and then snuggle up and watch a Christmas movie. We watch Christmas movies all throughout December!
To make this delicious spin on the classic bruschetta you’ll need quality tomatoes. Since winter is not the ideal time to buy fresh tomatoes, we always turn to Hunt’s diced tomatoes to make this bruschetta chicken amazing. Find them at Walmart!
First, we’ll mix together the bruschetta chicken topping. In a small bowl combine the Hunt’s diced tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, Italian seasoning, and black pepper. Mix together.
In an oven-safe skillet heat olive oil until shimmering. Then season chicken cutlets with salt and pepper and sear one side until brown.
Flip over and spoon bruschetta topping over each chicken cutlet.
Add mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses on top of the tomato mixture.
Place under broiler on high and cook until cheese is hot and bubbly.
Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley. Serve with rice or over noodles or zoodles!
These are bursting with flavor and thanks to the quick cooking method, they come out juicy and delicious!
