Bruschetta Chicken Bake for #WeekdaySupper

Boy oh boy do I have another #WeekdaySupper to share with you guys! Who doesn’t love a good Bruschetta??!! Something about seeing Bruschetta on a menu under the appetizer section that just makes my mouth water when I’m deciding on what to order! I don’t know why but the idea of fresh diced tomatoes, oil, fresh basil and garlic all served on top of a toasted piece of bread….Mmmmm….Yummy. So originally I wanted to incorporate some chicken into this dish I was thinking of, then I imagined some stuffing would make this dish complete.

We all need fast and easy dishes to make during the week for those crazy hectic nights. Well this one will not disappoint your family. I actually made it during the day while my kids napped and was able to keep it on the stove top until my husband came home from work. I served it with some brown sugar glazed carrots (my daughters favorite of the month) and it made one great meal! Another plus to this dish, well it was made in one pot!
