Reviews for Bruschetta Chicken for Four
"I recall using this recipe from Taste of Home and using a 14.5 to 15-oz. can of Italian-diced tomatoes, drained,( instead of the 2 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped) and 1 tsp. Italian seasoning, the flour, 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs, the 2 beaten eggs, the chicken breasts, 1 Tbsp. butter OR margarine, melted, 1 Tbsp. canola oil, the garlic cloves, salt and pepper.I didn't use basil. I dipped the chicken in flour, then eggs and coated with the bread crumb mixture. I drizzled with butter. I'd baked for at least 45 minutes or until chicken was fork-tender. After combining the tomatoes, Italian seasoning, oil, garlic cloves, salt and pepper, I spooned over the chicken and returned to the oven for 3 to 5 minutes until heated through. It's a really tasty recipe, too! Thank you for sharing it!delowenstein"
"We absolutely loved this chicken! My husband said he could eat it all the time. Plus it is so easy to make! This recipe is a keeper!!"
"This was different and good. My husband seemed to like this better than I did."
"Have made a number of times and glad you had the recipe on line since we are on vacation in FL and did not have it with us. We have to entertain and thought this would be the best to serve."
"Excellent! I used Pablo bread crumbs for an extra crunch."
