Bruschetta Chicken

Here is the second recipe for bruschetta chicken! This one comes from The Taste of Home Classic Cookbook, my favorite cookbook. It has a nice breaded coating but doesn't require an extra dipping step so it's still an easy weeknight meal. I added a little balsamic vinegar to the tomato mixture because I love me some balsamic vinegar!

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 lb)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1 tbsp butter, melted
2 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped
3 tbsp minced fresh basil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, optional

Preheat oven to 375ยบ. Place flour and eggs in separate bowls. Dip chicken into flour, then in eggs; place in a greased baking dish. Combine the Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, and butter; sprinkle over chicken. Loosely cover baking dish with foil. Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for 5-10 minutes longer or until top is browned.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Spoon over chicken. Return to oven for 3-5 minutes until mixture is heated through. Enjoy!
