Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cup + 1/3 cup good-quality Balsamic Vinaigrette, separated
  • 4 (about 2 pounds) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons canola, avocado, or olive oil
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt, separated
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, separated
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 4 medium-sized tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 shallot minced
  • 2 tablespoons freshly minced basil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
Instructions
  1. Add the chicken and 1 1/2 cup of balsamic dressing to a freezer-safe zip top bag and transfer it to the refrigerator. Marinate for at least 2 hours, and no more than 24 hours. This step is optional but will maximize flavor significantly.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350° and allow to come to temperature. Place a large, oven-safe skillet (or pan) over medium-high heat, and prepare the chicken.

  3. Remove the chicken from the marinade and pat dry with a paper towel. Discard of the marinade in the bag. Sprinkle the chicken with 1 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt, 3/4 teaspoon black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder, and rub all over to evenly apply.

  4. Add 2 tablespoons of oil to the heated pan, and allow to come to temperature. Add the chicken and sear for 3- 4 minutes, just until golden-brown. Flip the chicken and sear for 2-3 minutes more.
  5. Transfer to the oven and bake for 25-27 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. 

  6. While the chicken is cooking, in a medium-sized mixing bowl, add 1/3 cup of balsamic dressing, tomatoes, shallot, basil, and garlic. Season with 1 teaspoon Kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and stir to combine.

  7. Top each chicken breast with a generous serving of bruschetta, serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes
