20-Minute Grilled Bruschetta Chicken

This quick & easy grilled bruschetta chicken recipe features tender, juicy chicken breast topped with a flavor-packed bruschetta mixture. Delicious!

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x




  • 2 cups diced Roma tomatoes (56 tomatoes)
  • 1 head of garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 5 tbsp fresh chopped basil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 small shallot, diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 34 slices of mozzarella cheese


  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!
