Unexpected guests tonight? Don’t stress!

The Chicken Caesar Bruschetta is a perfect addition to your impromptu party. This small bite will impress your guests while not breaking the bank nor monopolizing your day with laboring in the kitchen. Marinating and grilling the chicken, seasoning and toasting the peasant bread and arranging your platter takes up all of 20 minutes of active cooking time. You can even substitute your favorite store bought Caesar dressing (just make sure it’s creamy) for the time consuming homemade alternative. Chicken Caesar bites bring elegance to your party menu while not requiring any risks to be taken by your pickier guests- who doesn’t love Caesar Salad?

Serves 8-10

Approximately 20 minutes active cooking time

Ingredients

Marinade:

Directions:

Remove chicken breasts from Main Entrée gift-box. Remove all packaging, place chicken breast on a plate in refrigerator to defrost.

Marinade:

In a mixing bowl add the lemon juice, Dijon mustard, cheese and garlic. Slowly whisk in the EVOO to create an emulsified marinade. Set to the side.

Recipe Directions:

ChickenBruschettaOnce defrosted, cut Main Entrée chicken breasts into 1.5 ounce portions and place in large mixing bowl- salt and pepper to taste. Pour marinade over chicken. Cover bowl and refrigerate for a few hours. While chicken is marinating, brush sliced peasant bread with EVOO and grill. Once toasted, remove bread from grill, allow to cool, cover and set aside.

About 20 minutes before your first guests arrive, preheat your grill to medium temperature. Once preheated, reduce grill to low heat and place your portioned, marinated chicken on the grill- turn chicken and cook on both sides. While chicken is grilling, you can start to lightly brush Caesar dressing on one-side of pre-grilled bread. Once chicken bites are completed, remove from Grill and place in a large mixing bowl. Allow to cool slightly. Add lettuce, olives and drizzle in fresh lemon juice- toss.

Delicately place chicken mixture atop the toasted, Caesar-seasoned bread. Garnish with shaved Romano cheese and serve.
