With a desire to elevate my everyday grilled chicken, I turned to the enticing flavors of tomato bruschetta. The thought of combining the classic flavor profile of bruschetta with tender chicken had my taste buds tingling in anticipation. I knew that this recipe would be a hit with both kids and adults alike.


  • 4 (5 ounce) boneless skinless chicken breasts

  • 1/4 cup Mazola® Corn Oil

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced

  • 1 tablespoon Spice Islands® Italian Herb Seasoning

  • 1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands® Fine Grind Sea Salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon Spice Islands® Fine Grind Black Pepper

  • 2 cups diced plum tomatoes

  • 1/4 cup diced red onion

  • 1/2 cup shredded Italian blend cheese

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil


  • Place chicken breasts in a large resealable plastic freezer bag, one at a time. Lightly pound chicken breasts to an even thickness of about 3/4-inch. Combine oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, Italian herb seasoning, salt and pepper in a small bowl and whisk until combined. Pour half of the marinade over the chicken, reseal bag, and set aside to marinate for at least 15 minutes. (Chicken and marinade can be prepared ahead; covered and refrigerated overnight.)
  • Preheat grill to medium heat or about 350 degrees F. Combine remaining marinade with diced tomatoes and red onion; set aside. Transfer chicken from marinade onto grill surface and discard marinade. Grill chicken for 4 to 6 minutes per side or until cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a serving plate and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Spoon bruschetta mixture over chicken and top with basil; serve immediately.

As I prepared the ingredients, the vibrant colors and fresh aromas of the tomatoes, basil, and garlic filled my kitchen. I could already imagine the burst of flavors that awaited me.

Once the chicken was grilled to perfection, I topped it with a generous spoonful of the tomato bruschetta mixture. The juicy tomatoes, fragrant basil, and aromatic garlic created a harmonious blend that transformed the humble chicken into a culinary masterpiece.

With the first bite, I was transported to the sun-drenched landscapes of Italy. The combination of the grilled chicken and the zesty tomato bruschetta was a match made in heaven. The flavors danced on my palate, creating a delightful symphony of tastes.

I couldn’t wait to share this dish with my loved ones. As they took their first bites, I could see the joy and satisfaction on their faces. The Bruschetta Chicken had elevated our meal, turning an ordinary day into a memorable dining experience.
