One peek through my recipes here at My Organized Chaos, and you notice that we love easy and simple family meals. My all-time favourites are those that aren’t complicated or time-consuming, and especially ones that kids are able to make themselves.
There’s definitely something to admire about quick dinners that make you feel like a chef, by your own taste or the compliments from others. I like to prove that a tasty meal that almost takes you by surprise, can be so very simple. This, my friends, is one perfect example of such a recipe that you’ll want to make often.
As the name would suggest, the stars of this dish is bruschetta and chicken. While you could make your own homemade bruschetta, this time of year I tend to buy jars from the grocer instead. As a bonus, jarred bruschetta is usually packed with enough spice to stand on its own.
The ingredients in bruschetta is tomato, garlic, onion, basil, salt, and pepper in a base of olive oil. Some jarred brands have balsamic vinegar in them, which is an ingredient that puts this taste over the top. If you are opting for jarred and it doesn’t have this, sprinkle some on top before serving.
How to Make Bruschetta Chicken
This dump and bake recipe couldn’t possibly be easier. While the oven is preheating, spray a baking dish with non-stick spray. Place chicken breasts in the dish and add pepper for taste.
Dump a jar of bruschetta on top of the chicken, along with some shredded mozzarella cheese. Pop it into the oven, and when it’s done, garnish with some chopped basil and balsamic vinegar (if desired). Voila!

My biggest tip for making this recipe, is of course to choose chicken with that Canadian Chicken Farmers logo on the package (see below). By looking for and selecting based on that logo, you’re supporting Canadian family-owned businesses, and our economy.
Perhaps you don’t know that Canadian chicken farmers adhere to a strict, mandatory & auditable Animal Care Program to ensure high animal care standards are being upheld. So while they provide us with obviously high quality tasty chicken, their responsibility extends beyond what you may see or taste.
A good idea is to browse the Chicken Farmers of Canada website. It has great recipes to try, facts about Canadian chicken, and even information right from the farmers themselves. You can also connect online – Facebook: Canadian Chicken, Twitter: @ChickenFarmers, Instagram: @ChickenDotCA and Pinterest: ChickenDotCA.
If your grocer doesn’t provide its customers with the “Raised by a Canadian Farmer” brand, ask them to . I have done this in the past, because I think it’s important for Canadian stores to carry what Canadians want.
