Bruschetta Chicken is a meal I love to make because it can be prepared in under 30 minutes, especially on weeknights when you want something quick. This Bruschetta Chicken Recipe is one of those simple, one pan dinners that you can pop in the oven, pour yourself a glass of wine and relax while the oven does all the work. Make sure you have some high quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil to drizzle over, it adds a ton of flavor and leaves your skin and hair soft and glowing.
This Bruschetta Chicken Recipe was created to pair with a nice red wine like Cabernet Sauvignon. I wrote this recipe for my weekly Food and Wine column using Still Waters Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon.
