I made this Bruschetta for my roommates the other day.
I don't usually love tomatoes, despite their nutritional value but I somehow do like Bruschetta
This recipe turned out great! . I originally got this recipe from  the Pioneer Woman but modified it to taste :)

2 Tablespoons Extra-Virgin Olive oil
5 cloves of garlic
Loaf of french bread (I chose wheat)
1 pint Cherry Tomatoes 
1 yellow pepper
Fresh Basil (lots)
1 1/2  Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar  
More olive oil
1/4 c. shredded mozzarella 

  1. Heat olive oil over medium-high heat, add in the garlic and stir so you lightly fry (about a minute). Then place in a bowl and allow the garlic/olive oil to cool. Set aside.
  2. Cut the cherry tomatoes into halves, then cut the yellow pepper into 1 inch pieces (I usually cut in half then continue to cut into halves again).
  3.  Add tomatoes, pepper, balsamic, basil, salt, pepper to the bowl with the Olive Oil and garlic. Toss and then add additional basil if necessary. 
  4. Cut the bread into diagonal slices to allow for the most surface area. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Grill the bread on both sides until they are a golden color. Repeat with all the slices. 
  5. Spoon mixture onto of the bread pieces. Sprinkle cheese over all of the pieces. Serve immediately.
Enjoy this tasty treat!

3. Once cooking time is completed take chicken out of the oven and brush mixture onto both sides.
4. Place frosted chicken breast into the oven for another 5-10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
