"I made this a few days ago and it was a big hit! I didn't have italian cheese blend on hand so I just made a mixture of mozzarella, romano, and parmesan cheeses. Broiling the chicken for 5 - 6 minutes would have been far too long. The cheese was browned after about 2 1/2 minutes, so I just took it out at that point. I make my own bruschetta, which my family loves, and that may have had some bearing on how well it went over. Will definitely make this meal again."

"I buy prepared Bruchetta from the mediterranean bar at Wegmans in the deli section. I've also found a jarred version in other markets but I like the fresh version better."

"This was quick and so delicious, just my kind of recipe after a busy day! By the way "prepared" bruschetta means "all ready made as in store bought" that is probably why there is no recipe shown for it."

"This was good. The other reviewers might have thought that this was a special kind of topping so they were looking for a recipe for it. The bruschetta recipe is simple enough for it to have been included."

"Bruschetta is simply diced plum tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic and olive oil. You can add balsamic vinegar also if you like."
