Baked Bruschetta Chicken Recipe

Delicious breaded chicken, baked in the oven and then topped with fresh tomato bruschetta makes for an amazing meal! This Baked Bruschetta Chicken recipe is the perfect way to use up tomatoes when they are in season.

Our family loves fresh bruschetta and we make it often. I love the flavors of tomato, basil, and balsamic vinegar all mixed together and decided that instead of serving it on bread, I would try it over chicken!

Even my kids gobbled this up, so it was a big hit with everyone!

A healthy dish with amazing flavor!

This time of year, I love all the fresh produce that is available. With bruschetta, it’s loaded with fresh ingredients that are good for you: tomatoes, garlic, a little bit of olive oil, and basil.

The chicken is lightly coated in breadcrumbs (I used whole wheat breadcrumbs) and instead of deep-frying the chicken, it is baked in the oven instead.

How to bake chicken in the oven

Sometimes oven-baked chicken gets a bad rap for being dry or over-cooked. If you follow this recipe, your bruschetta chicken should turn out perfectly tender and moist every time!

The first step in preparing baked breaded chicken is to dip each chicken breast into flour.

From there, dip the coated chicken breast into the eggs. The eggs are going to act as the “glue” that holds the breadcrumb mixture in place while it cooks.

The eggs and breadcrumbs will also help to keep the moisture inside, keeping your chicken from drying out.

Substitutes for the eggs

If you do not have any eggs or have dietary restrictions, you could substitute the eggs for any of the following:

  • milk
  • buttermilk
  • egg whites
  • mayonnaise

Timing is EVERYTHING when it comes to cooking chicken. The cooking times will vary based on the thickness of each chicken breast, but I would recommend checking the internal temperature of chicken after 30 minutes.

You want to make sure that the chicken is fully cooked and that the thickest part of the chicken breast has reached 165 degrees F.

Make-Ahead of time

If at all possible, I would recommend tossing the bruschetta together about 1 hour before you want to eat it to really let all the flavors meld together.

If you want to take this up a notch, you could add some fresh mozzarella on top of the chicken during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Cheese makes everything even more amazing!

This bruschetta would also work well on top of fish or pork chops.
