Caprese Chicken

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.
