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 when you are craving something above and beyond plain low carb food. The lite crust plus the addition of the flavorful blend of tomatoes, cheese, basil and seasonings is amazing.   You will feel like you are cheating but you are not.   It’s not completely no carb but it’s pretty close.   We hope you enjoy this flavorful recipe as much as we do.
