This flavorful recipe for chicken bruschetta features tender chicken topped with a fresh tomato basil garnish and a sprinkle of crispy cheesy bread crumbs!


  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes (either regular or cherry tomatoes will work)
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil leaves, plus extra for garnish
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • ½ cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 to 5 oz each)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Balsamic vinegar for drizzling (optional)


  1. Mix the chopped tomatoes, basil, 2 tablespoons olive oil and a pinch each of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl, and let it marinate while you work on the rest of the recipe.
  2. Put the fresh breadcrumbs, a pinch of salt and a tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Stir until the crumbs are golden brown.  Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Put the chicken in between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound until it is about ¼ inch thick.  Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
  4. Put the eggs in a shallow bowl and beat them up.  Put the flour in a second bowl and the panko crumbs in a third bowl.
  5. Dunk each chicken breast into the flour, then the egg, then the panko crumbs, pressing the crumbs so they stick.
  6. Put 2 tablespoons of canola oil into the skillet and heat over medium high.  Add the chicken and cook until golden brown on each side and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side.
  7. Divide the chicken among plates and top with the tomato mixture.  Mix the Parmesan cheese in with the toasted bread crumbs and sprinkle on top.  Garnish with basil leaves and a little more fresh ground pepper and serve, passing around the balsamic vinegar at the table for anyone who wants a little drizzle!
