Here's the skinny on this skinny chicken bruschetta; it's both calorie and carb conscious, but doesn't sacrifice any flavor on its path to being a model dish. Instead, it contains classic Italian beauts of flavors like creamy mozzarella and herbaceous pesto. This dish ain't only pretty, it has the added fire of a smattering of red pepper flakes and the tart shallots bathed in balsamic vinegar.
