Bruschetta is traditionally served al pomodoro, which means with tomato, olive oil and garlic. This variation is an exceptional one.
Slice the bread lengthwise and toast lightly in the oven. In a bowl, combine the chicken, tomatoes, garlic, parsley, basil, Dijon mustard, olive oil, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, and pepper. Spread tomato mixture over the toasted bread and sprinkle with Cheddar and Parmesan cheese.
Broil for 2 to 3 minutes, until cheese has melted. Serve immediately.
Makes 4-6 servings.
Kenny Kick: You can serve this as a delicious appetizer, or you can enjoy it as a light afternoon lunch.
Variation: Replace tomatoes with chopped zucchini.
Tip: You can use leftover chicken and day-old bread; it still tastes great.
