chicken caprese recipeThis dish is a summer staple.  Grilled chicken and bruschetta.  It is an easy and fresh summer dinner.  I make this in the winter too, but I do a chicken cutlet instead.  One of the things that I really love about this dish is that you keep the kitchen nice and cool.  I like to make the caprese part a few hours before I want to serve this and then send the hubs out to grill the chicken later.  I like the flavors in the bruschetta to get to know each other a bit before I put it on the chicken.  The leftover caprese is great leftover on some toasted crusty bread.
