Whole30 Bruschetta Grilled Chicken (Paleo Keto)

Whole30 Bruschetta Grilled Chicken (Paleo Keto) – classic fresh bruschetta flavors take ordinary grilled chicken to another level!  A simple five ingredient recipe!

Whole30 Bruschetta Grilled Chicken

I am always looking for new ways to use all the tomatoes coming out of my garden.  If I’m not making fresh salsa, I’m probably making this simple and tasty Bruschetta Chicken.  This recipe is one of my favorite ways to fancy up boring chicken with some awesome summer flavors, while keeping it light and fresh.

Bruschetta is one of those things I could eat on a regular basis without ever getting tired of it.  Of course I love the bread and fresh mozzarella that often goes with it.  But this recipe is so simple and tasty, I honestly don’t miss the carbs and cheese!   The balsamic glaze and fresh basil are a total flavor explosion in the best way!

Bottled balsamic glaze/drizzle is an option if you want to skip the step of reducing the balsamic vinegar.  Just be sure to check the ingredients for sugar and other additives if you’re looking to keep it Whole30 compliant.  As far as Whole30 recipes go, this Grilled Bruschetta Chicken is by far one of my favorites!

This meal is fancy enough to serve for company, yet is so simple to make with only five ingredients needed.  Feel free to marinate the chicken ahead if you have the time or just season with salt and pepper and call it good.  You can have this Bruschetta Grilled Chicken on the table in under 20 minutes!

Tips for Making Whole30 Bruschetta Chicken

Start with the best quality boneless skinless chicken breasts for really great results.  My favorite organic chicken comes from Butcher Box, which is a delivery service of high quality and delicious chicken, beef, and pork.  I LOVE their meat and especially the convenience of having it delivered right to my door!

Combine this homemade Italian seasoning blend with olive oil and a little red wine vinegar for a quick marinade

If grilling isn’t an option, bake or broil the chicken in the oven before adding the topping

Add chopped artichokes or olives to the bruschetta topping for another variation

    Absolutely loved this meal. I added a mix of spinach and mushrooms as a side dish which I sautéed on the stove with olive oil, black pepper and garlic.

    I made this but added some garlic to the bruschetta mix and nixed the balsamic vinegar:). Delish! Thanks.
