Recipe by DuChick

Credit for this 1998 winning recipe goes to Joan Baker of Oregan. While the chicken breasts cook, whip together the garlicky mushroom-tomato topping fragrant with basil. Sounds like a quick, full-of-flavor entree that will impress everyone!

What a fun twist on bruschetta! This was flavorful and delicious - loved the addition of mushrooms. Very quick to prepare - great for when you need something fast. I served with pasta. Thanks for sharing! PAC Spring '12
