How To Make Bruschetta Chicken Pasta

Step 1: Cook pasta according to package directions; Drain and rinse in cold water, set aside.

Step 2: While the pasta is boiling, season chicken with basil, oregano, garlic powder, and salt. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a large skillet over medium heat and sear chicken until browned on both sides and cooked through. Remove from pan; set aside and allow to rest.

Step 3: Add the remaining olive oil to the same hot skillet and add garlic and diced onion. Sauté the garlic and red onion until the garlic is fragrant (about 1 minute). Turn off heat. 

Step 4: Add in diced tomatoes, toss them lightly in the heat to warm them through and combine all of the flavors. Add the pasta into the skillet with the tomatoes and toss to combine. 

Step 5: Add in the balsamic vinegar and parmesan cheese and toss to coat well. Season with salt and pepper to your taste. Slice the chicken; add to pasta. Toss the pasta with all of the ingredients until well combined.

Step 6: Top with extra parmesan cheese (OPTIONAL) and serve immediately with balsamic glaze (optional).

What to Serve/Pair with Your Bruschetta Chicken Pasta

I always like to pair pasta dishes with bread. It always tastes so good when it is soaked in the sauce! My favorite bread to pair with this bruschetta chicken pasta with balsamic glaze is this Easy Homemade Garlic Parmesan Knots. The flavors in these bread knots pair perfectly with the flavors in the pasta.
To make this meal extra filling (and to get some veggies in), you can also pair this pasta with a salad. I like to make a spinach salad with carrots, cucumbers, and a light Italian dressing.  If you want to add some veggies but don’t necessarily want a salad, this Grilled Asparagus also pairs well with the bruschetta chicken pasta.

Popular Substitutions & Additions

If you don’t have spaghetti noodles on hand or want to try it with a different type of pasta, you can substitute another pasta, such as ziti or rigatoni, for the thin spaghetti noodles. 

If you want your pasta dish to be extra cheesy, melt some parmesan on top of your serving. 

Storage & Leftovers

This easy chicken bruschetta pasta is delicious when it is leftover! The flavors really have time to sink in. To store any leftovers, keep them in an airtight container in the fridge. They will last for up to 3 days. To reheat, divide your chicken pasta into individual portions and microwave in 30 second increments until they are warm enough to enjoy.

FAQs

Can I use fresh garlic instead of minced garlic?

For this bruschetta chicken pasta recipe, you will want to use minced garlic. Not only does it flavor it evenly, but it is also a time saver.

What is bruschetta?

Bruschetta is an Italian appetizer. It is usually served with bread, but I like to use it in a lot of different ways when I am cooking! It is typically a combination of tomatoes, olive oil, basil, and balsamic vinegar.

Can I use meat other than chicken?

Sure! I like how the flavors soak into the chicken in this bruschetta chicken pasta, but you could also try this recipe with fish or shrimp. If you think that the flavors of the tomato, balsamic vinegar, and spices will taste good on it, go ahead and try it!
