This balsamic bruschetta chicken is light, fresh and perfect for any warm weather occasion.
If you know anything about me, you know I’d do just about anything to not go outside during the summers in South Carolina. It’s sad, but for the most part, I stay indoors in the air conditioning for most of the day if I can help it. The brutal humidity we get thrust upon us for 5+ months of the year makes one large tick against living in this beautiful state for me unfortunately. I realize how strange this sounds coming from someone that was born and raised on the Jersey Shore, lived in Hawaii for the past 5 years and now lives on the south east coast once again.
Still, I enjoy the FLAVORS of summer even if I am consuming them indoors and this balsamic bruschetta chicken makes me feel like I am out on the deck watching the dragonflies when I am really inside by the window praying the alligator that likes to taunt our back yard to go away.
Balsamic bruschetta chicken is a really easy dish because there are minimal ingredients with a big fresh flavor punch that requires little skill to make!
