Grilled Bruschetta Chicken

Friday, April 8, 2011

I don’t know about the rest of the country, but the weather has been positively diabolical this spring here in the DC area.  It was totally frigid last week, even snowing a little one day, then on Monday it was nearly 90°.  Tuesday it was in the 50’s and rainy.  Wednesday sunny and gorgeous.  Hot or cold…which one will win?  It’s like the Republicans and Democrats duking it out on the federal budget.   I don’t pretend to know much about politics or weather, but one thing I know is that grilled chicken will reign victorious in our house any day of the week…rain or shine.  Democrats, Independents, and Republicans will all agree that this  bruschetta topping  on perfectly tender grilled chicken is the sure-fire answer to world peace.  Or at least to dinner-time peace.  Enjoy!

Thanks Jen! I got the recipe from a friend, so I didn't know where it originated, but I've gone ahead and added the link to the Kraft Foods website.

Your chicken parmesan recipe last month made me run out and buy a crock pot. Now between this, and the honey lime sandwiches you posted earlier, I am begging Jack for a grill. My addiction to this blog is getting expensive!
