  • 3 medium vine ripe tomatoes
  • 2 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil leaves, chopped 
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 3 oz part skim mozzarella, diced
  • 1- 1.5lbs chicken breasts (4)
Combine onion, olive oil, balsamic, salt and pepper. Set aside a few minutes.
Chop tomatoes and place in a large bowl. Combine with garlic, basil, onion-balsamic combo and additional salt and pepper to taste. Set aside and let it sit at least 10 minutes or as long as overnight. Toss in the cheese when ready to serve.
Season chicken with salt and fresh pepper. Grill the chicken on your indoor or outdoor grill, top with bruschetta and serve. Serve over whole wheat pasta.

The sauce makes a lot, so you could even half the sauce, but its also great to eat the leftovers with a fresh baguette.. bread and bruschetta my favorite! 
*Both me and Jeremy loved this recipe, I served it over whole wheat penne noodles and with steamed brocolli. It was very delicious. The boys don't love chunks of tomatoes so I served the boys just the grilled chicken and the noodles with a little margarine and parmsean cheese and brocolli. They gobbled it up.
Ever since Jeremy has been trying to lose weight (down 28lbs) now! Yea! I have been trying to find new healthy recipes, especially those low on salt and canned food and I came across this site, It has awesome recipes, like this one. I use it all the time. Enjoy!
