Balsamic Bruschetta Chicken

It’s a salad…it’s a chicken…no it’s dinner!

My father-in-law grows the best tomatoes.  I don’t even like tomatoes typically and certainly never in thick slices, but his home-grown tomatoes are different.  I eat them sliced with salt and pepper with a knife and fork…all by themselves.  If you haven’t tried fresh home-grown tomatoes, you should…even you don’t love store-bought tomatoes.  So my father-in-law brought some of his yummy tomatoes and of course we couldn’t let them go to waste.  This meal was so fresh and flavorful and super quick to make!
