Grilled Chicken Bruschetta

 

Nothing says summer like fresh tomatoes, especially if they come from your garden or the local farmers’ market. One of my favorite ways to eat tomatoes is with fresh basil and garlic. This grilled chicken bruschetta recipe is similar to traditional bruschetta except I skip the toasted bread and use grilled chicken breasts in its place. This dish is a great one to have on repeat during the warm summer months. It is light and packed with flavor. To chiffonade the basil, remove the stems and stack the leaves on top of each other. Roll the basil lengthwise like a cigar. Then slice the roll crosswise into thin strips. Enjoy!
