Whole30 Bruschetta Grilled Chicken – classic fresh bruschetta flavors take ordinary grilled chicken to another level! A simple five ingredient recipe!
At this point in the summer, I am always looking for new ways to use all the tomatoes coming out of the garden. And let’s face it, one can only make/eat so much salsa! This recipe is one of my favorite ways to fancy up boring chicken with some awesome summer flavors.
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! 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.
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 on the table in under 20 minutes!

Whole30 Bruschetta Grilled Chicken - classic fresh bruschetta flavors take ordinary grilled chicken to another level!
- 1.5 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced thin
- 1 cup diced fresh tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves
- 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup balsamic vinegar
Preheat grill over medium high heat. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper (or marinate ahead of time.) Place chicken on grill and cook until no longer pink, turning once throughout cooking.
In a small bowl, combine tomatoes, basil, olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir and set aside.
To make balsamic glaze: place vinegar in a small sauce pan and heat over medium high heat until comes to a gentle boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 10-15 minutes, until vinegar begins to thicken enough to coat a spoon.
Place tomato/basil mixture over the grilled chicken and drizzle balsamic glaze over top. Serve immediately.
