Bruschetta Chicken Baked in One Pan with Balsamic and Mozarella

Two secrets to delicious Chicken with loaded Bruschetta flavor:

1. Season Every Layer: 

Seasoning raw chicken before cooking is key to good chicken flavor. Any recipe, grilled, baked or sauted will benefit from seasoning. This simple trick will ensure always seasoned "never-bland" chicken.

Season bruschetta topping i.e. diced tomatoes, and basil with fresh chopped garlic, olive oil and balsamic. Even though you can drizzle balsamic glaze on chicken (recipe in notes) after chicken is ready. A little bit of balsamic vinegar mixed with tomatoes brings out real savory bruschetta flavors. The garlic, sweet and tangy balsamic and fragrant fresh basil. That's it! But so much flavor.

In-fact, this is my go-to recipe to serve Bruschetta Bread. Toasted baguette on side and it is a perfect appetizer.

Note: When making bruschetta; make sure to always remove seeds from tomatoes. It is important for good flavor and less liquid in tomatoes . I reserve seeds to add in stew/curry/soup later.

2. Top Chicken with Bruschetta Before Baking:

Covering chicken with tomatoes-basil bruschetta and Mozzarella before baking makes a huge difference in flavor and keeps the chicken juicy.

Here is why I cover chicken and bruschetta with layer of mozzarella before baking:

  1. Bruschetta of tomatoes, garlic, balsamic add another layer of flavor in chicken without over cooked tomatoes.
  2. Cheese comes out nicely melted, and bubbling. There is not whole lot of cheese per serving but the flavor it add it delicious.
  3. Baking everything together makes this Bruschetta Chicken recipe a one-pan Chicken dinner. Just break bread, boil pasta or rice for winner chicken dinner.
