On a recent family vacation, we ate at this cute little Italian restaurant, and they had the best bruschetta I have ever tasted. It was so delicious that it got my wheels turning. How can I recreate those amazing flavors in a dinner dish? 

This Bruschetta Chicken Bake was totally inspired by that heavenly appetizer! It has the same delicious flavors as a classic bruschetta, with its light sauce complete with savory tomato marinade, balsamic vinegar, basil, parsley, and salty feta cheese. Plus, it’s super quick and easy to make, perfect for a busy weeknight.

How to Serve

This is great served with a big side salad or roasted veggies to add in a bit of green. I would also highly recommend serving this dish with a loaf of toasted garlic bread or our Cauliflower Breadsticks.
