Bruschetta Chicken Bake

If you are fan of the famous Italian appetizer ‘bruschetta’  I can bet you will be fond of this bruschetta chicken bake.  For those chefs out there, this is recipe that can be tweaked and you can have fun playing around with the ingredients to perfect it to your taste buds. I am no chef, but I enjoyed taking the original recipe and modifying it to make it my own. This is the perfect meal to pair with candlelight and a bottle of your favorite wine. Enjoy!
