Bruschetta Chicken

ChickenDinnerHealthyLunchMain CoursesavorySummer

 I’m sure there are many of you out there, like myself, trying to lose a few pounds gained over the holidays. Am I right? I definitely indulged a little too much but it was worth it. I’d actually like to lose a little more than I gained so I’m on a mission to get  fit. I started the Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred challenge yesterday, and I’m so sore I can barely lift my arms or walk normal  : /

Of course with working out, healthy eating has to coincide. I’ve been searching for some healthy dinner ideas for my family so when I found this chicken it sounded right up our alley. I love bruschetta but never had it over grilled chicken. The results were stellar. This was a great way to change-up some boring pieces of chicken.
