  1. Season the chicken breast with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Heat olive oil or oil of choice in a grill pan or large skillet. Cook the chicken breasts over medium-high heat until browned on both sides and cooked through and the liquid runs clear and the internal temperature is  155F-160F, about 5-6 minutes on each side.
  2. Meanwhile, combine diced tomatoes, minced garlic, basil, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. While the chicken is still on the grill or skillet, top each breast with 1 slice of mozzarella and cover until cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Top each chicken breast with the tomato mixture and additional fresh basil as desired. Enjoy!

Recipe FAQs

20-Minute Grilled Bruschetta Chicken: FAQs

Is this bruschetta chicken recipe low carb?

Yes! One serving of this chicken is just 6.4 net carbs, making it low carb and keto friendly. Choose low carb sides to keep the whole meal keto friendly.

What is the difference between balsamic vinegar and balsamic glaze?

Balsamic glaze is a thicker, sweeter vinegar reduction. I like it for this recipe because it isn’t as liquidy as regular balasamic vinegar.

How do I know when my chicken is cooked through?

Place an instant read thermometer in the thickest part of the chicken breast. When the temperature reads 165F the chicken is cooked properly.
