Chicken Bruschetta Sandwiches Recipe

Publisher Photo
Regular bruschetta can be delightful, but rarely makes a meal. This appetizer- inspired sandwich, on the other hand, is beautiful and also pleasantly filling. —Bette E. Giles, Dedham, Massachusetts

Also good on toasted ciabatta rolls.

MY REVIEW

These were a perfect dinner for a hot summer night! My husband complimented me after every bite (Thanks Simple & Delicious). We are not a fan of tomatoes, so I substitued a red pepper bruschetta and it was still fab!

This is a great summer recipe & the fresh basil really helps make it. Didn't have mozzarella so used sliced provolone instead. This is a really simple & delicious recipe.

MY REVIEW

This recipe turned out great. It was a different twist on chicken. I placed my chicken on the toast and put mozzarella on top and popped it back in the oven to melt the cheese. I made pasta salad with this and to was yummo!

Fabulous! Hubby asked, "So when are you going to make these again?" This is a fabulous recipe, especially if you grow your own fresh basil like I do. Yum!
