italian chicken recipe
Bruschetta (Italian pronunciation: [bruˈsketta]) is a starter dish from Italy consisting of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt.
I decided to use it on chicken instead of on toasted bread and give it a little Indian touch. This has become one of my family’s favorite iftari this Ramadan.
It is spicy ,tangy and salty all at once. Try this recipe as a starter when the guest arrives and i am sure they will love it.

Directions || How to prepare Chicken Bruschetta
Trim the excess fat from the chicken breasts and cut each piece into four small piece.
Combine chicken with all the ingredients in a bowl and add salt and pepper.
Mix everything around to make sure the chicken is coated in the marinade. Refrigerate until ready to cook.
Prepare the bruschetta topping.
Finely dice the onion and tomatoes and mix all the ingredients (chillies ,oregano and salt )together in a bowl
Heat a oil separately in a frying pan. Fry the marinated chicken well on both the sides. After frying, remove from heat
and place chicken pieces on absorbent paper or paper towel to drain out excess oil.
Top each piece of chicken with about ¼ cup of the tomato bruschetta topping and about ¼ cup of shredded cheese.
It’s okay if some falls off, you can scoop it onto your plate along with the chicken.
