We establish a holographic description of chiral symmetry breaking for a particular confining large N non-supersymmetric gauge theory with matter in the fundamental representation. The gravity dual of this theory is obtained by introducing a D7-brane probe into a deformed Anti-de Sitter background found by Constable and Myers. We numerically compute the condensate and meson spectrum by solving the equation of motion of the D7-brane probe in this background. We find a symmetry breaking condensate as well as the associated, pion-like, Goldstone boson in the limit of small quark mass. The existence of the condensate ensures that the D7-brane never reaches the naked singularity at the origin of the deformed AdS space.
