Servings: 4 servings


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 box linguine pasta
  • 3 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese


  • 4 plum tomatoes seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup basil finely chopped
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  • Preheat the BBQ to med-high heat. Brush chicken with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, then season with salt & pepper. Once BBQ is preheated, grill chicken for 10-12 min per side until chicken is cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add linguine, and cook for about 10-12 min.
  • While pasta is boiling and chicken is cooking, prepare bruschetta.
  • Remove chicken from the grill and slice.
  • Drain pasta, retaining a bit of the pasta water in the bottom of the pot. Pour linguine back into the pot, adding about two-thirds to three-quarters of the bruschetta to the pasta, then adding cream and parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper if desired, stirring pasta and cooking on med heat for a couple min until tomatoes become slightly cooked.
  • Plate pasta, topping with sliced chicken, a couple spoonfuls of bruschetta, some fresh parmesan cheese and some chopped fresh basil. Ahh, summer in a bowl!
