Healthy and super flavorful, this is a go-to family favorite in our house.

An essential flavor component in this Bruschetta Chicken Bake is the balsamic glaze, which is easy to find in most markets. While it’s an optional drizzle before serving, it adds a punch of incredibly delicious flavor. It’s a pantry staple that’s worth having.

That being said, for those with sulfite allergies, most vinegar made from grapes contains sulfites. A better choice for those with allergies would be a grain-based vinegar like rice vinegar or cider vinegar which are generally sulfite-free.

Tomatoes in this Bruschetta Chicken Breast Bake

There is a bit of chopping in this recipe. Four to five tomatoes, in fact. However, if you choose firmer Roma tomatoes, it goes very quickly. But in a pinch — drained canned tomatoes can work too.

Mozzarella Cheese

We call for 4 ounces of shredded mozzarella cheese layered over the chicken breasts. Use this amount as a guide, considering the tastes of your family. At times, I increase the amount; other times, I eliminate it altogether. You know your crowd and their preferences!

    1. Hi Meg! I love to serve it with sautéed greens. My family also loves it over mashed potatoes as the accumulated juices serve as a delicious gravy of sorts. But over rice or even a toasted chunky slice of bread is really good to.

      For lower carb ideas, cauliflower rice is delicious too. Enjoy!

  1. I wish on your recipes you would share the nutritional information. That would be so helpful for some of us on the Carb/Fat/Protein way of eating.

    1. Thanks so much for your comment, Maura. I completely understand watching carbs/fats/protein in my daily diet. We have added this feature to this recipe and will be updating our others as quickly as possible. Have a great day!
