A few years ago, I shared a super tasty Tomato Basil Bruschetta recipe with you guys.

And, while I’m a super big fan of bruschetta as an appetizer  <– I mean c’mon, we’re talking about fresh tomato, basil, mozzarella, and balsamic vinegar on a thick slice of baguette.

It’s really not even a competition.

But.

There’s this whole clean eating thang we’ve been doing ’round here that doesn’t really jive with the whole baguette thing.

Maybe on a cheat day, but not all day every day, like I like my bruschetta.

So, I looked at my fave bruschetta recipe and considered how I could make it a cleaner, higher protein option that I could enjoy more often, feel great about, and — essentially — make it possible for me to enjoy bruschetta more often.

Big shocker: Boneless skinless chicken breast was the answer.  It’s lean.  It’s high protein.  It’s clean.  It’s perfect.

But wait.  Let’s make this EVEN better.

Let’s make this a one pan meal.

Yes, let’s do that.

What Cheese To Put On Chicken Bruschetta?

What about the CHEESE, you ask?

I’m right there with you.  Cheese is amazing, but the wrong cheese can mess up the flavor.

While you can easily leave the cheese out of this chicken bruschetta recipe to keep it dairy-free, I love to add a slice of fresh mozzarella. The creaminess and tender texture balances the flavors perfectly.  You could also add a little parmesan cheese grated over the top, if you’d like.

Hello: deliciousness.

Can You Freeze Chicken Bruschetta?

This chicken bruschetta also makes great left-overs, which is always a winner for us during the week as part of our meal prep.  Just add it to a meal prep container and place in the fridge for up to 4-5 days.  If you want to freeze the chicken bruschetta, it will work, but the tomatoes wont retain quite the same consistency once frozen.  They’ll still be tasty and will be edible, just not as perfect as fresh.

To freeze the fresh mozzarella, you can choose to freeze it separately, wrapped in it’s own packaging or tightly wrap with plastic wrap.

To reheat, just allow to thaw in the refrigerator the night before and then reheat in the microwave for about 2 minutes or in a pan until heated through.
