Bruschetta Chicken


One of my hubby's favorite appetizers is bruschetta, he absolutely loves that awesome flavor of tomatoes, basil and olive oil on a crunchy slice of a baguette!    But since we are watching our carb intake,  I have been trying to find a way to satisfy his basil addiction without all those carbs.   So I thought, how about a perfectly crunchy chicken breast topped with flavorful spoonfuls of bruschetta?   This Bruschetta Chicken is loaded with healthy protein but it has the perfect combination of flavors that the hubby loves.   And it was a hit, here at the Ranch!   Healthy and Happy Hubby!!
