Chicken Bruschetta Bake

I recently came across this recipe and we love it! I love all the fresh ingredients and how quickly it goes together!

Here's what you need for a 8x8 pan:

1/2 bag of baby spinach
olive oil
4-5 oz Feta cheese
3 roma tomatoes
3 chicken breast
1/2 stick of butter (Or 2T butter and 1.5T Grapeseed oil)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t. each of dried basil, salt and pepper
1/2 loaf of crusty french bread

Place  spinach in greased 8 x 8 pan. Drizzle with olive oil.  Top with feta and tomato.

Melt the butter and add garlic and grapeseed oil.

(Just discovered grapeseed oil and I am hooked! Better for you than even olive oil. Read more about health benefits here.)
Add the salt, pepper and basil.

Dip the chicken in the butter/oil mixture to coat.

Place chicken in pan on other ingredients. Pour any extra butter mixture on top of the chicken.

Chop the french bread into 1 1/1" pieces.  Place on top of chicken until covered.

Bake 50-60 minutes at 350 degrees or until bread is golden.

  1. Sounds delicious!! We love grapeseed oil, too. Have you tried popping corn with it on the stove? It's really good with a little sea salt. :)
