What do you do with all the leftover bruschetta mixture from the weekend?
Make Chicken Bruschetta!
Remember, it's pronounced "broo-SKETTA", please. (bitch).
Instead of piling the tomato mixture on top of toasts, use it as a topping for chicken breasts.
Dip some chicken in F.E.B.
Flour, egg, breadcrumbs, and saute until done.
Top with the bruschetta mixture and you have a wonderful, light dinner.
I served it over arugula.
Here is my basic bruschetta topping (add to toasted bread swiped with garlic):
8 plum tomatoes, cut into small dice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup red onion, minced
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
3 tbsp olive oil
If you are watching your calories, you can grill the chicken instead of breading it.
You can make this ahead and reheat at 350F for 15 minutes.
This will cook the tomatoes and vinegar and break down the acidity a bit.
