Grilled Chicken Bruschetta

Do you have lot's of fresh tomatos and basil from your garden?  Well here's another way to use them up and fill up your family.

Take some boneless, skinless chicken breats and butterfly them so they will lay open.  (Like a butterfly porkchop)    Watch this video to show you how to butterfly a porkchop if you aren't sure how to do it.

Take the butterflied meat and season both sides with salt and pepper and then add to a hot grill pan that has some olive oi or your oil of choicel in it.  You will need about 3 tabelspoons for a grill pan but you could use less oil if you used a regular skillet.

Cook each side for about 3-4 minutes (depending on how thick your chicken is and how hot your pan is).  I was only trying to achieve nice grill marks not cook it completely thru.





Take the meat off the grill and add slices of tomatoes and pieces of basil to one side of the chicken.


Fold over the side piece of the breat and secure it down with toothpicks.  If your chicken is completly cooked you can serve the dish now.

I added my chicken back to the grill pan and put it under the broiler for about 5 minutes.

The result is a delicious, fresh, summertime treat.  There is just nothing like the taste of fresh summer tomatoes.  We really enjoyed this light, refreshing summer meal.



4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (butterflied)
3 medium ripe tomatoes
Fresh Basil - about 3 stalks or 2 -3 leaves per breast
Salt and Pepper for seasoning
2- 3 T Oil for the grill pan

Take the butterflied meat and season both sides with salt and pepper and then add to a hot grill pan that has some olive oi or your oil of choicel in it.  You will need about 3 tabelspoons for a grill pan but you could use less oil if you used a regular skillet.  Cook each side of chicken for about 3-4 minutes (depending on how thick your chicken is and how hot your pan is).  I was only trying to achieve nice grill marks not cook it completely thru.  Take the meat off the grill and add slices of tomatoes and pieces of basil to one side of the chicken.  Fold over the side piece of the breast and secure it down with toothpicks.  If your chicken is completly cooked you can serve the dish now.  I added my chicken back to the grill pan and put it under the broiler for about 5 minutes.

The result is a delicious, fresh, summertime treat plus there is just nothing like the taste of fresh summer tomatoes.

Enjoy!
