Grilled Bruschetta Chicken

This Grilled Bruschetta Chicken is super easy to make and marinated in the most delicious lemon balsamic dressing all topped with melty mozzarella cheese and fresh tomato bruschetta for the perfect summer meal!

Yield: 4 Servings 1x


For the bruschetta:


  1. Whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, lemon juice, oregano, basil, salt and pepper until well combined.  Season the chicken with additional salt and pepper on both sides and place in a shallow dish or 1-gallon sealable plastic bag.
  2. Pour the marinade over the chicken, making sure everything is completely coated, and marinate for at least 1 hour or up to 12 hours.
  3. To make the bruschetta, slice the tomatoes and place in a bowl and mix in the chopped garlic, olive oil, basil, salt/pepper and set aside to let marinate while the chicken cooks.
  4. To cook the chicken, heat a grill or grill pan. Once hot, place the chicken on the grill (discarding the marinade) and cook for about 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until cooked through and no longer pink (the internal temperature should be 165 for cooked chicken).
  5. Top each chicken breast with a slice of mozzarella cheese and allow the cheese to melt, then remove chicken from the grill.
  6. Spoon the bruschetta over top of each chicken breast and drizzle with a little balsamic glaze, if desired.  Serve immediately and enjoy!


*Leftovers will last about 3 to 4 days stored in a sealed, airtight container in the fridge and it’s best to store the chicken and bruschetta separately so that the bruschetta doesn’t get mushy.
