Ingredients

Bruschetta

  • 2 lbs cherry tomatoes I like to use a red, yellow & orange mix but plum tomatoes can also be used
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic or 3-4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil packed firmly & chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh oregano chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 cup Mazola Corn Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Skillet

  • 4 medium chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1-2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 Tablespoons Mazola Corn Oil
  • 2 zucchini made into zoodles
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated

Directions

  1. Mix all bruschetta ingredients in non-reactive bowl and let sit for 15-30 minutes so flavors will meld.

  2. While bruschetta is marinating, season chicken breasts on both sides with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.

  3. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons Mazola Corn Oil.

  4. When the oil starts to shimmer, place chicken breasts carefully in pan and brown 8-10 minutes on one side, turn and brown on second side for 8-10 minutes or until cooked through. Cover while cooking to help retain moisture.
  5. While chicken is cooking make zoodles with zucchini using a mandolin or spiralizer.

  6. When chicken is done, remove to a plate and add bruschetta mixture to pan, reserving 1/2 cup to serve on the side.
  7. Immediately add zoodles to skillet and toss to coat.
  8. Add chicken back into skillet and simmer, covered, for about 2 minutes, just enough to heat zoodles.
  9. Remove from heat. Place chicken on cutting board and slice on the diagonal.
  10. Place zoodles on serving plate and top with sliced chicken. Drizzle with juices from pan.
  11. Garnish with grated parmesan cheese and additional basil if desired.
