Bruschetta Chicken

Plate with four servings of bruschetta chicken

In the summer, I am always looking for dinner ideas that are quick and easy, but also lighter and healthier. I also love grilling, as it makes it easier to keep a watchful eye on my little ones as they play outdoors. This bruschetta chicken takes only about 15 minutes to prepare, it can be grilled or prepared on the stovetop and it comes in at under 500 calories and only 7 net carbs. This would be a great way to use those delicious fresh summertime tomatoes!

Products I recommend for this recipe:
