I like this recipe because it has the usual bruschetta toppings and is light and kind of tangy. You can serve it with a salad, but it is a healthy meal by itself. I get rave reviews whenever I serve it.

This was a great way to dress up chicken! I'm not a fan of garlic powder, so I just seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper and grilled it up on my cast iron grill pan. I also used squash in place of mushrooms..it was more of a warm zucchini/squash slaw than a bruschetta, but the flavors still worked very well. Thanks Lainey!
This was great. DH and I really enjoyed it. I grilled the chicken instead of broil. The only other thing I did was I used 2 zucchini and 1 can of italian style tomatoes. Served over a bed of spagetti tossed with olive oil. Yummy!
