These bruschetta chicken bombs are dynamite!! You can pretty much sum these flavour bombs up in one word: YUM! Here is a recipe you are going to want to add to your favourites. This fun chicken recipe is stuffed with a delicious bruschetta mix, wrapped in crispy bacon and cooked to perfection. 

What you will need: 

  • 3 large chicken breast; cut in half
  • 12 slices of bacon
  • 1 medium tomato; seeds removed and diced
  • ¼ cup cooking onion; diced
  • 1 small garlic clove; minced
  • 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. fresh basil; finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil

Directions

Prep Time: 20 minutes  ◊  Cook Time: 30 minutes  ◊  Yields: 6 portions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 
  2. Drizzle a small skillet with olive oil, and bring to medium heat. Add onions and sauté until tender and lightly browned. Remove from heat and mix in garlic. 
  3. In a medium sized bowl, add tomatoes, onion/garlic mix, balsamic vinegar, basil, a drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper. Toss to mix. Set aside.
  4. Using a sharp paring knife, slice the center of each halved chicken breast to create a “pocket” inside. Use a small spoon to stuff as much filling inside the chicken as you can. 
  5. Use 2 pieces of bacon to tightly wrap each chicken breast ensuring you fully close off the stuffed opening. 
  6. Add olive oil to a cast iron skillet or non-stick pan and heat to medium-high heat. In batches, sear each side of the chicken for 2-3 minutes, and use the sides of the pan to ensure the bacon is crispy all around. 
  7. Place seared chicken bombs on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
