Creamy Bruschetta Chicken {Gluten Free}

Creamy Bruschetta Chicken - super yummy! Add this to your gluten free recipes. One pot recipes are not just easy to cook but to clean as well.

Like many of you, when I cook I tend to toss ingredients in a pot and call it good. Dinner is done and if it tastes great, well that’s a fabulous bonus. As a blogger, I hate it when that happens.

I don’t hate the fact that it turned out, heavens no. I get annoyed when I create something worth blogging but I have no idea what I did. I keep a notepad handy and my camera is usually only a few feet away but my issue is sharing with you how much I used. I never measure.

So when I had the idea of a creamy and gluten free chicken dish, I got out the measuring cups and had everything ready. I’m so happy I did because it created this amazing recipe for Creamy Bruschetta Chicken. Not only is this beneficial to me as a blogger, but as a fancy-dancy homemaker as well. I now can make this recipe the same every time.

Keeping It Wheat Free

Using Almond Flour To Crust Chicken

First things first, I’m wheat free. They give me hives and I just feel gross while I eat it. So you know what I used for breading the chicken?

Almond Flour.

It worked amazingly well. I have made this recipe twice since I first took these photos plus chicken parmesan using almond flour and I think it works better then regular flour breading.

Creamy Bruschetta Sauce:

This sauce for Creamy Bruschetta Chicken is absoultely amazing. I love one pot recipes!

I had a tough time when it came to titling this recipe, it was my husband who suggested Creamy Bruschetta Chicken and it was a lot better than Chicken with Cream and Tomatoes that I was thinking (I am not creative when it comes to titles – maybe I should put him to work). PS – in case you’re curious here is the pot I’m currently loving on right now.

I have a little mantra in the kitchen. When in doubt, add parmesan cheese. I love parmesan and whenever I find a recipe missing that little bit of “oompf” I add parmesan and it makes a world of difference. It’s probably one of my favorite ingredients.

This would be delicious served over pasta, but I serve it with roasted broccoli and oh my goodness gracious – this sauce with broccoli is absolutely-freaking-amazing.

I made this with two chicken, but there is enough sauce for four. I just put the leftover sauce in the fridge and made the recipe again a few days later 😉

Creamy Bruschetta Chicken recipe:

Gluten Free Bruschetta Chicken Bake

Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 egg
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • Sea Salt & Pepper (for seasoning the flour)
  • 2 tbsps ghee (coconut oil works great too)
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsps cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil
  • 5-6 leaves fresh basil, torn
  • Pinch of pepper

Directions:

  1. In a pot or deep skillet, over medium heat, add a tbsp of your ghee (coconut oil works as well).
  2. Take two separate bowls. In one: crack your eggs and mix. In the another: add your almond flour, sea salt and pepper.
  3. While the ghee is melting bread your chicken: dip your chicken in the egg mixture and then again in the almond flour mixture. Coat the chicken in the breading and add to the hot pan.
  4. Cook chicken for roughly 8-10 minutes each side, or until fully cooked. Set aside on a plate.
Sauce:
  1. Deglaze the pan by adding the chicken broth, use your wooden spoon to get all the bits up and off the bottom. Don't discard, they add beautiful flavour.
  2. Add the cream and diced tomatoes. Heat through, add the rest of the ingredients and bring it to a simmer.
  3. Transfer the chicken back to the sauce. I let it simmer all together for about five minutes.
  4. Garnish with additional basil if desired.
Ghee is basically one step past clarified butter. It doesn't burn as easily and as a sweet flavor to it. To make ghee (this would need to be done ahead of time), melt butter and gently boil (over medium-low) until butter is translucent and a golden color. Scoop off the foam, strain through a cheesecloth into a glass jar and let set.

PS: Ghee is really easy to make, I added instructions in the note but be sure to head to This West Coast Mommy’s blog post on ghee as she lays it out step by step.
