Bruschetta Chicken with a Honey Balsamic Glaze

Bruschetta Chicken with a Honey Balsamic Glaze

A new Paleo Chicken dish… THAT. IS. DELICIOUS!!!

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE bread…especially bruschetta of any kind!  BUT… My hips don’t lie and they don’t get along with bread so well.  So, I found this recipe and added a few new ingredients to make it my own.  I’m so happy with how well it turned out 🙂  Here’s the recipe!

What you’re going to need:

1 pint of cherry tomatoes, quartered

1 big handful of basil, chopped

2-3 tbsp onion, finely chopped

1 tbsp olive oil

1 lime, juiced

salt and pepper

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup honey

2 tbsp Italian seasoning

4 organic chicken breasts

Directions:

1.  Start with the honey-balsamic.  Add vinegar and honey to a small saucepan.  Bring it to a boil for 5-7 minutes.  Stir it with a whisk occasionally.  Simmer on low heat until you’re ready for it.  If it gets too thick, add 1 tbsp of water to thin it out.

2.  In another bowl, add your chopped tomatoes, onion, basil, olive oil, juice of lime, salt and pepper.  Refrigerate until ready for it.

3.  Season your chicken with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.  Cook chicken however you want… Grill it, smoke it, bake it, or saute it!  This particular night I smoked it.  It was delish!

4.  When your chicken is cooked, drizzle the honey balsamic over the chicken and top with the tomato bruschetta. This part is totally optional…After the chicken is cooked, I chopped up some more fresh herbs (basil, thyme, and oregano) and sprinkled on top of the chicken, then topped it with the tomato bruschetta.  YUM!
