Bruschetta Chicken

Bruschetta Chicken

It’s that time of the year when tomatoes taste best so you’re gonna wanna add this next recipe into your dinner rotation right away! Bruschetta Chicken is an end of summer staple in my house. This relatively simple dish is a spectacular way to fancy up a weeknight dinner. You could even pre-make the bruschetta to save a little prep time. Keep it healthy and serve alongside a salad or green beans or make it hearty with a little pasta. You really can’t go wrong. You’re gonna love the perfect balance of tomatoes, garlic and chicken in every bite.

Here’s all you’ll need:flour, eggs, chicken, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, butter, tomatoes, fresh basil, olive oil, garlic cloves, salt and pepper.

Start by placing the flour in a shallow bowl. Place the eggs in a separate bowl and lightly beat. Ok so full disclosure, the only thing that I don’t like about Bruschetta Chicken is that you’re going to use a lot of bowls. But it’s so worth it!!

Dip the chicken first in flour and then in the eggs. Make sure you get it all covered! Then place the chicken in a lightly greased 13X9 baking dish.

Tomato Basil Soup

Tomato Basil Soup

Hey there! Who’s ready for soup season? I sure am! We are finally getting some of that crisp Fall air blowing through Buffalo this week and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I loved grilling out this Summer, but I am SO ready to turn on the oven and make some comfort foods. What could be more comforting than a big bowl of tomato soup? In my house we are soup lovers!! We pretty much make a different soup every week from October through March with a couple of my favorites as repeats. Some soups are just too good to only make once a year. Am I right??? And of course Tomato Basil Soup is one of those repeats. It’s simple and delicious, but also super inexpensive to make! Grab some oyster crackers and pair with a grilled cheese sandwich, we’re about to warm your soul. This one is SOOOO good!!

Here’s all you’ll need: carrots, onion, chicken broth, evaporated milk, tomato puree, butter, basil, salt and white pepper.

Chop up the carrots and the onion into small pieces. Betcha didn’t know that Tomato Basil Soup had carrots hidden inside!Tomato Basil Soup by Happylifeblogspot.com #tomatosoup #tomatobasilsoup #souprecipes #comfortfood #soup

Add the carrots and onion to a Dutch oven and cook in butter over medium-low heat for about 30 minutes. Cover and stir occasionally. Tomato Basil Soup by Happylifeblogspot.com #tomatosoup #tomatobasilsoup #souprecipes #comfortfood #soup

Yum! Look at all of those nice veggies that will act as our base. Return the mix back to the Dutch oven. Tomato Basil Soup by Happylifeblogspot.com #tomatosoup #tomatobasilsoup #souprecipes #comfortfood #soup

Next add in the tomato puree, Basil, sugar, salt, pepper and remaining broth. You can substitute black pepper in a pinch. It’ll still be really good! I promise. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat down to a low and simmer for 30 minutes longer. Tomato Basil Soup by Happylifeblogspot.com #tomatosoup #tomatobasilsoup #souprecipes #comfortfood #soup

Stir in the evaporated milk and leave on the stove until heated through. Do not boil. Tomato Basil Soup by Happylifeblogspot.com #tomatosoup #tomatobasilsoup #souprecipes #comfortfood #soup

Serve hot! Add soup crackers, croutons, parmesan cheese, or whatever you like. Oh my! Just looking at this mug full of Tomato Basil Soup almost makes me wish for Winter weather…….ALMOST!!! Not quite though. Does anyone else love to dip a nice grilled cheese sandwich in there? What’s your favorite soup? Best Ever Zuppa Toscana and Hearty Cheeseburger Soup are a few of mine!
