recipe round up

Happy Friday everyone!  I am finally remembering to post a healthy recipe to the blog.  WHOOP WHOOP!  It's a little late, but hey I guess it's better than never.

This week's recipe is for Grilled Chicken Bruschetta.  I LOVE this recipe because it is so fresh tasting.  I have a family of five and three out of the five will eat the bruschetta topping.  Not too bad I suppose.  Here it goes, I hope you like it.

Grilled Chicken Bruschetta

6 chicken breasts (pounded a little if they are thick)
McCormick Montreal Seasoning

~Just season the chicken with the Montreal Seasoning and set aside.  I let mine marinade in a covered dish in the fridge for about 4 hours.

Bruschetta Topping
  • 8 roma (plum) tomatoes, seeded & diced
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil  ( I have used dried basil, about 1 TBL)
  • 2 - 3cloves garlic, minced
  • 1.5 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
***Grill the chicken like you normally would.  After it is done top with the Bruschetta.

EASY PEASY right?  I love it.  If you want the bruschetta warm then you can add it at the end.  My son likes it topped with a little bit of shredded mozzarella or parmesan.  I like to eat it with the bruschetta cold, it tastes so fresh and so good.  I promise next week I will take pics of the food when I post!
