Italian Chicken

This is my adaptation of a recipe that basically combines bruschetta and chicken. If you have room for cheese in your meal plan, I highly recommend broiling some mozzarella cheese over the chicken! It is sooo good. This is a very quick and inexpensive meal to make. Great for company or on nights when you're just feeling fancy!
