Bruschetta Chicken Recipe

I’ve always wanted to be a great gardener. It’s one of those things that I aspire to be.  My mom was a great gardener so you would think that I would have picked up some tips along the way, but as I’ve learned, a green thumb is not genetic. My thumb is brown, wilted and in need of water.

One thing I am good at is cooking, and one of my favorite easy appetizers to prepare is bruschetta. I serve it on top of a toasted baguette rubbed with garlic and olive oil.  It’s delicious every time.

Recently I was able to keep a basil plant alive past the weekend and decided to seize the opportunity to take my bruschetta to the next level– by turning it into a full meal.  I created a delicious bruschetta chicken dinner with fresh ingredients from my garden (also known as the potted basil plant on my porch).
