Outdoor Grilling made Easy
I’m so excited for this recipe because it was made SO easy by using our new grill, the Cuisinart 360° Griddle Cooking Center. During our marriage, we have had the privilege of having 5 different grills. Some were gas grills, some were pellet, one was charcoal. Each has been fun to cook on, but NONE have been as easy, efficient, or as beloved as this new Cuisinart 360° Griddle Cooking Center. I’M OBSESSED! I love so much about it, but here are some highlights.
- It has a HUGE 22″ round diameter meaning you can fit so much food on it, and all your loved ones can stand around and help! Even though the cooking surface is big, the actual grill is pretty small and doesn’t take up much space. It’s the ultimate cooking machine!
- It’s nonstick surface makes for easy cooking and simple cleanup.
- There’s a cleanup tray around the outside, ensuring not a drop of grease or fat will hit your deck.
- You can literally do IT ALL on this grill. You can steam, grill, bake, roast, warm, and more! You can even cook pancakes on the griddle top. It’s amazing.
- It’s got a great price point, starting at just $174 (and you can get it at WALMART)!! Anyone getting married soon?? This is what I’m getting you!
The Cuisinart 360° Griddle Cooking Center is a dream come true for busy families. I can’t wait for you to give a try, especially if making this Grilled Caprese Bruschetta Chicken. Not only did I grill the chicken on it, I also made the balsamic reduction!
Bruschetta Chicken Caprese
We absolutely LOVE Caprese anything around here. The combination of tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil is a classic flavor I’ll never get tired of. This Grilled Bruschetta Chicken recipe fits right in with our other favorite dishes!
If we don’t have anything in mind for dinner on a warm summer evening, my favorite thing to do is throw together a quick Caprese Salad and pass it back and forth. Meaning, we, just eat a whole lotta cheese and tomatoes for dinner, and I can’t imagine anything better…
Except this grilled chicken caprese, because then it feels like an official meal. Tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella piled on top of juicy balsamic grilled chicken? The perfect combo!
Grilled Chicken Caprese
We love grilling chicken in the summer time for light and tasty meals. This Grilled Bruschetta Caprese Chicken is always a hit!
Grilled chicken is one of the healthiest things I make, and luckily we don’t have to sacrifice taste to get it. The balsamic reduction adds sooo much flavor, and a heaping spoonful (or two) of the caprese mixture makes it so fun to eat.
Recipes like this make me want to grill every single night, so I can be super healthy while still enjoying every last bite! I’m so lucky to have a husband and dog that love grilling too. There’s really no better way to enjoy the summer!
How to Make Grilled Bruschetta Chicken
You won’t believe how easy this grilled bruschetta chicken recipe is. Other than some quick grilling, there’s practically nothing to it. Grill chicken, top with delicious caprese salad, and done in no time!
- Start by making the caprese mixture so it’s ready when the chicken is hot and fresh off the grill.
- Preheat your grill, then make your balsamic reduction. Grill chicken breasts about 6-8 minutes per each side. Brush with the balsamic reduction while cooking.
- When the chicken is done, top each piece with cheese and allow to melt.
- Spoon lots of the caprese bruschetta over the chicken and serve!
What to Serve with Bruschetta Caprese Chicken
I feel like I could just eat this grilled bruschetta chicken on its own (with a nice glass of wine) and be plenty satisfied. But to make it into a full meal, it’s nice to add a couple of sides into the mix.
To keep it healthy, you could serve a bit of rice, a salad, and some grilled vegetables for good measure! Here are my fave sides for this grilled chicken recipe:
- Grilled Lemon Butter Asparagus
- Zesty Panzanella Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette
- Caprese Farro Salad
- Cheesy Baked Tomatoes

That cooking center is such a great tool to have! Looks like such an amazing meal.
This is really a better way to enjoy summer. I am very much found of cooking. I used to try different types of food. For me making food and serving food means a lot. i will definitely try this caprese bruschetta chicken in my home, and will definitely share it here.
Made this tonight…it was delicious! I pounded the chicken, then let it marinate in about 1/2C of the Balsamic reduction for 2 hours. Grilled to perfection! Tastes like summertime…and since it has been in the sub-zero temps here in Central NY for the past several days, it was a nice way to feel warmer! :)
That makes me so happy!!! So glad you loved it. Thanks for letting me know :)
Just ran into this on pinterest and my mouth is watering. This chicken is stunning Becky! I just made a chicken burger last week with balsamic reduction drizzled on after and I wish I had seen this post and brushed it on the chicken while cooking. Brilliant!
This looks really good and the dog is so cute!
Thank you!!! She loves being involved :) Happy 4th!
