Oven-Fried Parmesan Bruschetta Chicken

This is a classic chicken recipe inspired by bruschetta. Using chicken breasts or cutlets, a mixture of mayonnaise and parmesan is smeared over top and dusted with seasoned bread crumbs. It bakes up crispy and crusty on the outside and traps all the juices inside making for a tender piece of chicken.

The bruschetta topping of tomatoes, basil and onion (green or red) gives it a light, healthy touch. The bruschetta is versatile making it easy to change up the flavors. For a change of pace mix in some crumbled feta or goat cheese, chopped olives, additional vegetables or even fruit like mango or avocado.

    This has everything – what’s not to like? I like my chicken crispy and the mayo keeps it moist. And then there’s that tomato topping – heaven on a plate.
