I am so excited for you to try this recipe! This has got to be one of the easiest and best-tasting paleo dishes I’ve brought to you yet!
Bruschetta was one of my favorite appetizers in my pre-paleo days. I loved going out to a nice Italian restaurant and having crunchy grilled bread topped with basil, fresh tomatoes, sliced mozzarella and drizzled with olive oil. I could close my eyes and be in the hillsides of Tuscany – that bruschetta was so good!
Well this savory dish gives you all the heavenly flavor of a gourmet restaurant’s best bruschetta. And it’s more than just an appetizer – it’s a whole bruschetta-inspired meal with baked chicken! It’s so good, you’ll never miss the non-paleo ingredients.
This paleo bruschetta started with a recipe my friend Lisa shared with me. She raved about it and said I should really try and transform it into a tasty paleo-approved dish.
Lisa’s a great cook, and I trust her when she tells me to try a recipe. So I did! About the only thing I needed to leave out from the original was the cheese.
Now I know some of you indulge in cheese once in a while, and that’s okay. If you choose to top this beautiful meal with a bit of grated mozzarella, i promise I won’t tell.
As for me, I always feel better when I eat clean, so I don’t do recipes with cheese. But I kinda made up for that missing ingredient by adding artichokes and Kalamata olives to ramp up the Mediterranean flavor of this dish even more. And seriously, now it’s an awesomely healthy meal everyone will love.
This recipe will take you about 15 minutes to throw together, and then 30 minutes or so to bake.
It’s a really easy weeknight meal, and if you have leftovers, you’re in luck! I can personally tell you it’s just as good the next day because I brown-bagged it to work…super good!
Don’t waste any time thinking about this one. Make this paleo and gluten-free bruschetta chicken dish. Now. :)
