Chicken Bruschetta {Gluten Free & Paleo Friendly}

Serves 2 – 3

Ingredients –

For the chicken –

250g (8 ounces)ย  boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I used 2 large chicken breasts)

Salt and pepper to taste

Coconut oil for cooking – could sub olive oil, Ghee or bacon or duck fat if you prefer

For the Bruschetta mix –

1 cup of baby tomatoes, finely chopped

1/4 cup of fresh basil, finely chopped – or 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil

A squeeze of fresh lemon juice – approx 1 tsp

Salt and pepper to taste

Method –

For the Chicken –

1 – Place chicken onto a piece of parchment paper, season both side with salt and pepper and give it a little pounding with a rolling pin (or implement of choice) to slightly tenderize, flatten out and ensure a thinner and more uniform thickness overall which will result in a quicker and more even cooking.

2 – Place a large skillet or fry pan over medium heat, add a your coconut (or olive oil/ bacon fat or ghee/cooking oil of choice) and cook chicken for 2-3 minutes each side until cooked through.

5 – Remove chicken from heat and set aside to rest while you make your bruschetta mix.

To make the bruschetta –

1 – Place all ingredients into a small bowl and stir to combine.

2 – Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.

FYI – It’s fine to make your bruschetta mix ahead of time just don’t add the lemon juice until a few minutes before you are ready to serve as the acidity from can cause the tomato to break down a little after a few hours ๐Ÿ˜‰

To serve –

Simply place a couple of heaping spoonfuls of your bruschetta mix on top of your chicken and serve with a simple salad or your veg of choice.

I highly recommend you serve this chicken with a side of this creamy, roasted garlic whipped cauliflower, a mountain of good ol’ fashion green beans and some dreamy avocado (like so) – but do what you feel – make it your own ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy xo

    Can’t beat a fast and healthy meal, especially in the summer when there’s just too many fun things going on to want to be in the kitchen as much! I love bruschetta and love how it’s piled on to some chicken for such a yummy dinner! I think I might add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar as well. Pinned!

      Oh yes I agree 100% Kathryn and a drizzle of balsamic (and even a sprinkling of feta or goats cheese) would be divine!

      Thanks for pinning,

      Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚
