Chicken Bruschetta


Summer presents a challenge for deciding what to eat. So many well-loved dishes do not seem appropriate for summertime fare. Chicken Bruschetta makes a great one dish summertime meal that is worthy of serving dinner party guests.


Marinated and grilled chicken (cut in half horizontally to allow for quick and even cooking) topped with a healthy portion of veggies is super easy to prepare (although there is quite a bit of chopping involved).
