Bruschetta Skillet Chicken

This is a simple stove top meal with good flavor. It would be good served with pasta on the side.

  • 1-1/2 cups of grape tomatoes halved. (You can substitute a 15oz. can of chopped tomatoes, drained)
  • 3/4 cup shredded Italian blend cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 pound of Chicken Tenders
  • 1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 cup small garlic or Italian flavored croutons, crushed slightly

  1. Stir together tomatoes, cheese and basil in medium bowl and set aside.
  2. Combine tomato sauce and garlic in large skillet: add chicken.
  3. Bring sauce to a boil over medium-high heat.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low.
  5. Add the mixed tomatoes, cheese and basil evenly on top of the chicken.
  6. Cook for 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  7. Top with croutons and more cheese if  desired.
  8. Serve hot with pasta or another side dish.
Serves 4

You can use boneless skinless chicken breasts instead of the tenders but you will need to pound them to a 1/2 inch thickness.

  2. This sounds delicious Ellen! I have some frozen mini tomatoes that might work in this yummy dish!? Fresh pasta on the side would be perfect indeed!

  3. Made this for dinner tonight and family really enjoyed it. Didn't have croutons so served with toasted garlic bread instead. So good!

  4. are the chicken tenders breaded?

    1. No I did not bread the tenders before adding them to the pan.
