Reviews for Bruschetta-Topped Chicken & Spaghetti
"Was very tasty, but just okay. Would make again, but not something I would make all of the time. I used the fresh tomato bruschetta recipe from this site for those people who do not want a store bought mix."
"What is prepared bruschetta?? I won't be making"
"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."
"You can also find prepared bruschetta in your supermarket."
"Easy to find how to make bruschetta. Google"
"I also could not find the Bruschetta recipe. Really want to try this recipe but is not any good without the Bruschetta. I would only rate this 3 stars with that important recipe."
"Where's the recipe for Bruschetta? That the reason for the poor rating. I scrolled all over this place and couldn't find the recipe for the topping for the chicken breasts."
"This was really good-my picky husband liked it, will be making it again!"
"I haven't made this yet because there is no recipe for the "Bruschetta Topping!" could you please include that? I would love to try it ,looks great. Please add the topping recipe so I can make it!"
"Wow i love this"
"IT SEEMS GOOD"
"This was delicious and very easy. It was a hit at our dinner table."
"I used Gia Russa's sweet pepper bruschetta and Kraft's new 5 cheese Italian blend and this was really fast, east and scrumptious!"
"Each summer I make fresh bruschetta from ingredients from my garden. I always seem to have it on hand so used it instead of the prepped bruschetta the recipe calls for. This dish is easy and oh so tasty, My husband and I loved it and I will definitely be making it again."
"This was amazing! My whole family enjoyed it. Instead of prepared bruschetta, I made my own using produce from my garden. We are definitely repeating this dish!"
