When the fall season rolls around the days always seem to feel a little busier, maybe because it starts to get dark way earlier than we have been used to and the days seem so short. I love having easy recipes on hand for those days that just feel so rushed. This baked bruschetta chicken is such a simple recipe to whip up, and so flavorful! Serve it with your favorite potato dish, maybe try my roasted garlic parmesan potatoes or a fresh salad. The recipe serves 4 at 3 points per serving on WW.
