Healthy Bruschetta Chicken

This tomato bruschetta mix on top of the oven baked chicken was a deliciously fresh combination.  Another meat and 3 vegetables meal idea for you!


For a quick roast potato I placed some tiny taters in a bowl, sprinkled over some olive oil and sea salt, tossed to coat. Then placed onto a baking tray and popped them in the oven to brown, they were in the oven for approximately 45 minutes.

I then browned the chicken in a frying pan and put in the oven to continue to cook through, browning is not necessary, this step can easily be skipped.  I walked away and put some washing on the line.  10 minutes before chicken is ready I started preparing the brushetta and blanched the beans in boiling water.  A filling but light and family meal.

Hi Kat. Sounds like a yummy and refreshing dinner. I experimented with a similar chicken recipe recently. I called mine Greek Chicken – it was basically chicken thighs marinated in lemon and oregano, pan fried then over the top – some chopped cherry tomatoes, sliced red onion, goats cheese and drizzled with olive oil(plus salt and pepper of course!)

This looks delicious! I’m a big fan of bruschetta so this will be yum! I also love using my oven. Warms up the house in winter and it’s easy to walk away and get other stuff done 🙂

Hi Kat I always worry when cooking chicken breast that it will be too dry. Does the bruschetta mix counteract that?

Loving your Paleo meals. That is my life now. Green beans are ok on Paleo. It is the other type of beans that are not
