Ingredients

Scale

Chicken

  • 1 lb chicken breasts, sliced thin
  • 3 tsp Italian seasoning
  • Garlic Powder to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Bacon Bruschetta

  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 roma tomatoes, finely chopped
  • ¼ red onion, finely chopped
  • 4 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 68 thick sliced of crisp bacon, crumbled

Glaze (optional)

  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sweetener of choice (optional)

Instructions

Prepare Chicken:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  • Spray baking dish with non-stick spray

  • Season chicken with Italian seasoning, garlic powder and salt

  • Bake in oven for 25 – 30 minutes, or until internal temp reaches 165 degrees

Prepare Bacon Bruschetta

  • While chicken is bacon, chop all ingredients for bacon bruschetta.

  • Combine chopped tomatoes, red onion, basil, bacon and olive oil in a bowl. Season with salt.

  • Once the chicken is ready, top each chicken breast with tomato mixture.

Prepare Balsamic Glaze

  • Prepare glaze while chicken is cooking

  • Combine sweetener and vinegar in a small saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil.

  • Reduce heat to low. Allow the sauce to simmer for 5-8 minutes, or until the mixture has thickened to a glaze.

Tips:

  • Precook bacon and leave in the fridge until ready to use. I batch cook bacon to use in different recipes throughout the week.

  • Use leftover bruschetta to top recipes throughout the week. I love this bruschetta on top of eggs.

  • If you’d like to add a sweetener to the glaze, test out Swerve or Allulose. Be sure to count those carbs in your daily budget.

  • To lower carbs in the recipe, leave the glaze off completely.
