Ingredients

  • 4 slices whole grain bread or 1 whole wheat baguette, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 thin slices mozzarella cheese
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast cutlets
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 3 roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/3 red onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place the bread on a baking sheet and drizzle with the oil. Place the bread in the oven and cook for 3-5 minutes, or to desired crispness.
  • For the chicken, add the oil and seasonings and set aside. Heat a grill, Panini press, or skillet over medium high heat. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until the chicken is cooked through.
  • While the chicken and bread are cooking, assemble the bruschetta by combining the tomatoes, onion, garlic, oil, balsamic vinegar, and basil in a bowl. Mix well.
  • To assemble the sandwiches, top each slice of bread with 1-2 chicken cutlets (depending on size), then place a slice of cheese over the chicken. Just before serving, top each sandwich with the bruschetta.
