Chicken Bruschetta

When tomatoes are at their peak you absolutely must make bruschetta!

You can make just the bruschetta if you wish and serve it on top of fresh French bread.  Here we paired the ripe juicy tomatoes and gorgeous fragrant basil with chicken tenders and pasta!

I recommend serving it with a bottle of my favorite wine!  (Who am I kidding?  I wouldn’t serve this, I would drink the wine all by myself!)
