This healthy Chicken Bruschetta has just 8 easy-to-find ingredients that won’t leave you scurrying around the grocery store looking for random items. πŸ™‚

Perfect Presentation Platters

This healthy Chicken Bruschetta looks fantastic on its own, and here are some of my favorite products for prepping and presentation.

Salt and Pepper Holders: I absolutely love my marble pinch pots for salt and pepper, which you could fill with any spices you use regularly.

Chopping Boards: I use round wooden serving boards all the time, both for prep and serving. Some of my favorites are this white striped wooden board from Kirklands, this mango wood board from Target, this marble and wood rectangular tray from JC Penney, or this round marble and wood option from World Market.

Baking Dishes: For a slightly smaller baking dish, I use this white stoneware dish from Target all the time. This ceramic set of two from Walmart is also on sale! This clear 13 x 9 pan from Target is handy to have, and I also love this pretty blue ceramic pan from Rachel Ray for Target.

Serving Trays: If you’d prefer to transfer the dish to a serving tray once it is cooked, this oval serving tray with handles is dreamy and at a great price, as well as this is acacia wooden tray with handles from Walmart. I also use this circular wooden serving tray from Target all the time! Finally, this white porcelain tray or marble option (both from Walmart) can be used for so many different occasions!

Can I Make This Ahead of Time?

Yes! You can prep this healthy Chicken Bruschetta about a day ahead of time; just keep refrigerated. It’s possible to freeze it, but with such a low prep time, I’d recommend making it within a day or two of serving and skip freezing it.

Storing Leftovers

Cover leftovers with Saran Wrap or store in Tupperware containers and refrigerate. This should stay fresh for about 3 days in the refrigerator.
