Bruschetta Chicken Wrap Recipe

Bruschetta Chicken Wrap Recipe

As an Italian-American, I love, love, love garlic, tomatoes and basil, all of which are musts for good bruschetta. This recipe was created in celebration of the first tomatoes to come out of our home garden this year. —Gina Rine, Canfield, Ohio
