Bruschetta is an Italian antipasto and consists of grilled slices of bread topped with tomatoes, herbs, meat, and more. This recipe really turns things inside out, using the tomato as the base and the toasted bread, chicken, spinach, and herbs as the filling.

Instructions Checklist
  • Remove skin from chicken and discard. Cut meat off the bones. Chop enough meat to measure 2 cups; save the remaining chicken for another use. In a medium bowl, combine the 2 cups chicken, the spinach, green onions, basil, vinegar, oil, and garlic. Toss to evenly coat.

  • Cut a 1/4-inch-thick slice from the stem end of each tomato; discard slices. Using a spoon, carefully scoop out the tomato pulp, leaving a 1/4- to 1/2-inch-thick shell. Place shells, open sides up, on serving plate(s). Discard tomato seeds. Chop enough of the tomato pulp to measure 1/2 cup; discard remaining pulp. Stir the 1/2 cup tomato pulp into chicken mixture.

  • Divide chicken mixture among tomato shells. Top with bread cubes and cheese.
