Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 slices Arla Havarti Wedges
  • balsamic reduction (also called 'balsamic glaze')

Cherry Tomato Bruschetta

  • 2 cups tomatoes halved
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup red onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • ½ cup fresh basil (loosely packed)
  • salt & pepper

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 425°F.
  • Toss chicken breasts in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Arrange in a large baking dish and sprinkle with minced garlic, dried basil and oregano, and salt.
    Optional- marinate for 2-24 hours.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, until chicken is at or near an internal temperature of 165°F
  • While chicken is baking, mix together the cherry tomato bruschetta, and prepare cheese slices.
  • Place cheese slices over chicken breasts, then scatter the bruschetta over top. Return the chicken to the oven for another 3-5 minutes, until cheese is melted.
  • Enjoy!

To prepare ahead

  • Chicken may be 'marinated' in the balsamic/olive oil mixture for up to 24 hours. Cherry tomatoes, garlic and onions can be chopped 24 hours ahead. DO NOT chop basil ahead as it will brown.

To re-heat

  • After cooking through, leftovers may be stored in the fridge for 1-2 days. Re-heat at 350°F for 15-20 minutes, until chicken is warmed through. The tomatoes will be softer but are still so tasty!
