Bowls in the food world are the equivalent to Game Of Thrones in the TV world, SO HOT RIGHT NOW!

If you google “Bowl Trend In Food” you’ll find dozens of articles about how “Bowls Are The New Plates”. Yes, that’s actually the title of an article from The Wall Street Journal!

This is one food trend that I’m not upset about at all! You can pack a lot of healthy ingredients into a bowl, while also adding a ton of flavor to make it super yummy!

Bruschetta Grilled Chicken Zoodle Bowls

A few weeks ago I hopped on the trend with a delicious recipe for Thai Peanut Pineapple Veggie Rice Bowls. Although technically I was ahead of the trend with my Gluten Free Kung Pao Beef & Noodle Bowl that I introduced in 2013! 😉

Today I’m sharing a new chicken recipe that incorporates one of my favorite summer cooking trends, grilling, with the trendy new bowl phenomenon!

Bruschetta Grilled Chicken Zoodle Bowls

If you have time in the morning, toss the chicken in the marinade. (Don’t worry, it will take less than 5 minutes!) In the evening, toss the chicken on the grill, mix up the bruschetta, spiralize some zucchini and scrumptious grilled chicken zoodle bowls await you!

Bruschetta Chicken Zoodle Bowls Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp olive oil (divided)
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • ½ tsp sea salt

  • 2 tbsp fresh basil (chopped)
  • 2 chicken breasts

    • 3 Roma tomatoes (chopped)

    • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
    • 1 tbsp fresh basil (chopped)
    • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
    • ¼ tsp salt
    • ¼ tsp black pepper
    • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese (grated)

Bruschetta Chicken Zoodle Bowls Instructions

Bruschetta Grilled Chicken Recipe

Add to a large plastic bag with the chicken and marinate for up to 8 hours. I would recommend at least an hour.

Before grilling the chicken, combine all of the tomato basil bruschetta ingredients in a large bowl.

Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve the bowls.

Bruschetta Grilled Chicken Recipe

Remove the chicken from the marinade and place on a grill over medium heat for 10-12 minutes per side. I use this indoor grill to grill the chicken.

While the chicken is grilling, prepare the zoodles.  Add the remaining 1 tbsp olive oil to a large skillet, then add the zucchini noodles and saute 3-5 minutes.

Use a spirlizer to make the zucchini noodles at home or look for pre-made zucchini noodles in the produce section of the grocery store.

Divide the zucchini noodles between two bowls. Once the chicken is grilled, slice it up and place on top of the zoodles. Spoon the bruschetta on top of the chicken and zoodles.

The olive oil, balsamic vinegar and tomato juice from the bruschetta act as a dressing on the zucchini noodles. The pieces of tomato add a burst of freshness and flavor to every bite!

I ate one of the bruschetta chicken bowls for dinner earlier this week. I then packed up the other bowl for Kurts lunch the next day. (Yes, I pack my boyfriends lunch, and yes, I cut his sandwiches in heart shapes! 😉 )
