Chicken Gorgonzola Bruschetta Garlic Toast

These little toasts are so much fun. Full of my favorite flavors: gorgonzola, chicken, lots of garlic and of course juicy bruschetta topping.

If you are not a gorgonzola fan, use a good mozzarella and this will be equally as good. Wanna know what else? It only take about 5 minutes in the oven! Woohoo!

Serve this fabulous toast with any Italian dish you might be serving or eat it straight up for lunch…or serve with soup ๐Ÿ™‚

You are going to love this one.

Here’s your basic line-up. Not pictured is my chicken breast that was cooling on the oven ๐Ÿ™‚

My sweet niece was face timing me for this whole recipe. What a cutie she is! Miss you Junie!!

Ok, start with a fabulous loaf of bread. I like to use the par baked ciabatta from Trader Joes. It’s fabulous x 10!

Spread both sides generously with some buttah.

Sprinkle with some good garlic salt.

The fun part, top with gorgonzola! Love it!

Top with cooked shredded chicken breast, lightly seasoned with salt and pepper.

Top with some fresh beautiful bruschetta topping, see my recipe below.

Bake in your oven’s broiler for about 5 minutes and it will come out golden and toasted ever so lovely.

Cut into slices and get ready to be in love!

Oh mama mia, crispy and fabulous!

    Who on earth is not a fan of gorgonzola? I was eating some straight from the package; I kid you not, like 5 minutes ago!

  21. 21

    Wow, super tasty looking especially with gorgonzola..a huge fav of mine. I used to make a bread like this at Whole Foods and it sold like crazy! TJ’s has awesome bread, I love the mini kalamata olive baguettes.

    Susan J says:

    Yum! Question, could you freeze it? Like if I made a whole loaf of french bread but only wanted to eat half today? Probably not the bruschetta, but if you made it up to the point where you put that on, do you think it would freeze well?

    • 25.1
      Jenny says:

      Hi Susan, I don’t see why you couldn’t freeze the garlic loaf ahead of time. Just add the bruschetta topping after defrosted.

  26. 26

    Wow! Every word in that title makes me want to get out my baking sheet even though I’m stuffed from dinner. Totally pinning this!

    Ashley says:

    Made this last night for dinner with a caesar salad! Yum. I love gorgonzola but daughter and honey don’t so I didn’t tell them! I just made it and waited for everyone to say they LOVED it to tell them what was in it. I put extra cheese on my side as well ;o)

  28. 28

    How sweet that you FaceTimed with your niece while cooking! I love the idea of this toast and might just have it one day for breakfast, lunch AND dinner!

    Oh my gosh, these are DIVINE! I made them to accompany our tortellini dinner last weekend and I was blown away. I omitted the chicken and only used about 3/4 cup cheese and it was still incredible. Love the buttery goodness and the subtle hint of balsamic vinegar. I used foccacia bread. I just can’t say enough about what a treat it was!

    Would sour dough bread work for this? Do you think it would taste good or no?
