Bruschetta Chicken

I LOVE the bruschetta sauce from Trader Joe’s. Only 3.5 carbs per portion for this recipe (from the tomatoes). It has great flavors, and tastes awesome! This was basically a three ingredient dish that was incredibly simple. I chose to sear my chicken before going into the oven in the hopes of sealing in moisture. I know that the bruschetta sauce will yield some liquid at the bottom, but the taste with the cheese is spot on. It has a really perfect Italian flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil or other healthy fat
  • 2 lbs chicken breasts, pounded to similar thicknesses
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup Trader Joe’s Bruschetta Sauce
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Method:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a skillet over high heat. Sear the chicken for 2-3 minutes on each side. Transfer to a baking dish. Spoon bruschetta topping over the chicken (try to grab the “chunky” portion and allow the liquid to fall to the bottom of the container). Sprinkle the cheese over the top.

Bake for 20-30 minutes, checking the temperature for doneness and juices run clear.
