Ingredients

  • 2 Chicken Breast boneless, skinless, sliced lengthways to make 4 fillets
  • 4 Tbsp Homemade Pesto Sauce or store-bought

BRUSCHETTA TOPPING:

  • 1 Cup Cherry Tomatoes chopped
  • 1 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 3 Tbsp Toasted Pine Nuts
  • Shredded fresh basil
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Rub chicken fillets with pesto sauce on all sides.
  • Heat a large non-stick skillet or grill pan over medium heat. Cook chicken for 8-10 minutes, or until cooked through and no longer pink in the inside.
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine all bruschetta topping ingredients.
  • Top each chicken fillet with the bruschetta mixture and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Notes

  • You can make your own pesto or, to save time, you can get fresh pesto from the store. Costco has an amazing pesto you can get. 
  • You can make the bruschetta topping up to a day in advance, but it's best fresh.
  • Fresh tomatoes and fresh basil really take this bruschetta topping to the next level!
  • You can use a grill or pan to cook the chicken, grilling uses less oil.
  • If you are feeling decadent you can place a slice of mozzarella cheese on the chicken before adding the bruschetta topping.
