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

A key 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 flavor that is incredibly delicious. It’s a pantry staple that’s worth having.

Tomatoes

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.

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, and other times, I eliminate it all together. You know your crowd and their preferences!

Make the Bruschetta: Chop the tomatoes into a small dice, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch and add to a medium size bowl. Next, chop the red onion and add it to the bowl. Toss with fresh basil and olive oil; season with salt to taste. Set aside.

Season the chicken breasts with Italian seasoning, garlic, and salt. Place the seasoned chicken in the bottom of a baking dish and sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese.

Drizzle the balsamic glaze over the chicken and serve immediately.
