Chicken Bruschetta Bake

An easy wholesome dinner that is made with fresh ingredients, and takes very little prep time.

This Chicken Bruschetta Bake recipe takes all the divine flavors of a bruschetta appetizer, and turns it into a complete meal. Typically, bruschetta is served on bread, toast, or crackers. But here, it’s baked over top of chicken breasts, which keeps them tender and juicy, and locks in those incredible flavors. It also ups the protein content and lowers the carbs, making it a healthier and lighter meal. The melted mozzarella cheese really seals the deal on this dish, and gives that creamy, melty goodness that just can’t be compromised. Not all delicious and healthy Weight Watchers recipes require hours of painstaking effort in the kitchen. This Chicken Bruschetta is a breeze, and delivers a fantastic meal that the whole family will enjoy.
