What veggies to use

You can literally use ANY type of vegetable in this recipe! I like to add some chopped potatoes to bake in the oven with the chicken to add a bit of starch sweet potatoes are also a great option. If using mushrooms or potatoes or another hearty vegetable, I recommend that you cook the sheet pan for a full 20 minutes along with the chicken and drain the excess liquid halfway through.

For other types of vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, etc. you will only want them to cook for 10-12 minutes in the oven, so add them in halfway through the cooking time. You don't want to overcook them!

Making this recipe on the stovetop

You can also make this recipe in a pan on the stove if you don't want to turn the oven on! Simply saute the chicken for 5-6 minutes each side with olive oil, Italian seasoning plus salt & pepper in a large skillet over med-high heat, then saute the vegetables for another 10 minutes.

You can then top with bruschetta after cooking just as you would if you cooked this recipe on a sheet pan.

How to make bruschetta

Now this bruschetta recipe is your most basic version out there.

The basic formula is this: plum tomatoes + LOADS of garlic + olive oil + salt + fresh basil. Here's exactly what you need:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 5 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped basil
  • 1/2 tsp each salt & pepper

DO NOT skimp on the fresh basil.

One time my mom used dried basil and it absolutely ruined in for me. I know it's a pain, but keeping fresh herbs on hand at your house is one of the best ways to elevate your weekly meals from plain and boring to delicious and full of flavour.

Storing and reheating

You can store this recipe in meal prep bowls in the fridge up to 5 days. To reheat, simply sprinkle a tiny bit of water overtop to avoid drying out the chicken, and microwave for 1-2 minutes. Leave the bruschetta off until you've finished microwaving everything bruschetta will last in the fridge up to 5 days too so it will taste fresh when you add it to the leftover chicken.

Can you freeze this recipe?

As a whole, I would NOT recommend freezing this recipe. The bruschetta definitely won't freeze, and neither will the veggies. However, the cooked chicken on its own does freeze well so it's worth a shot to freeze a breast or two if you have too many leftovers. This recipe only serves 4 though, so this shouldn't be an issue. I would recommend enjoying fresh if you can, or cut the recipe in half if you don't think you can finish it.
