I love chicken and melty cheese. Add in basil, sundried tomatoes, and a balsamic glaze, and you have a Bruschetta Chicken Sandwich that is out of this world.

It is amazing on sourdough bread, a Kaiser roll or any sturdy bread that you like.

I even like to slather some butter on underneath it all, and seriously, every bite is just bursting with flavor!

Why We Love Bruschetta Chicken Sandwiches

  • A nice change from the boring deli sandwich – I often get in lunch ruts when working from home. It’s either leftovers from dinner, something easy (which usually entails an egg sandwich or scrambled eggs) or a turkey sandwich. All of those options are delightful in their own right, but none of them really excite me. This bruschetta chicken sandwich recipe on the other hand? It excites me like no other.
  • Bursting with flavor – Just imagine melted mozzarella cheese, basil, a balsamic tomato glaze that is slightly sweet and slightly savory. Everything comes together perfectly.
  • Pairs well with fries or veggies– I love to make some air fryer veggies or fries on the side. They cook while this cooks, and the total meal doesn’t take any longer! Some favorites are air fryer butternut squash fries, air fryer sweetpotato wedges or air fryer honey parsnips.
  • Ready in under 20 minutes – I know a chicken bruschetta sandwich may sound complicated, but it’s really not! While the chicken is cooking on your pan, you can toast your bread and put together your balsamic glaze. Then, once the chicken is done, just layer up that sandwich. It’s so easy!

If you enjoy baking your chicken, you can make it in the oven! I love how juicy the oven baked chicken is, like in these oven baked chicken kabobs.

But, that takes more time and this stovetop version is quick and just as delicious!
