Total Time 6 hrs 25 mins

Ingredients
  

Chicken:

  • 2 medium boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 medium cloves garlic diced
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup freshly shredded pizza mozzarella

Bruschetta Topping:

  • 6 medium tomatoes chopped into 1/4” cubes
  • 1/4 cup lightly packed fresh basil diced
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 medium cloves garlic diced
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Slice the chicken breasts in half horizontally to create two even thickness filets. Use a meat mallet to pound each filet to a thin even thickness.
  • In a small bowl, mix together 1 Tablespoon olive oil, Italian seasoning, white wine vinegar, 2 cloves garlic, salt, and pepper to make the marinade. Coat the chicken in the marinade, cover, and refrigerate for 6 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 F (218 C). Bake the chicken on a rimmed baking sheet for 12 minutes (or until the internal temperature reads 165 F on a meat thermometer). Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella over the chicken. Turn the oven to broil, and broil for 1 - 2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted, golden brown, and bubbly.
  • Add the bruschetta topping ingredients to a medium bowl, and stir to combine. Spoon the topping over the cooked chicken, and serve immediately.
