Grilled Bruschetta Chicken

Ok, another chicken recipe.  But, with all the kraft food magazine recipes that Nicole has added recently, it reminded me of this one.  Very yummy on the grill.  I’ve tried to make this inside during the winter and it just isn’t the same.

1/4 cup sun dried tomato vinaigrette dressing, divided
4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 tomato, finely chopped
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil or 1 tsp dried basil leaves

Place a large sheet of foil over half of grill grate;  preheat grill to medium heat.  Pour 2 tbsp of the dressing over chicken in resealable plastic bag; seal.  Turn bag over several times to evenly coat chicken with the dressing.  Refrigerate 10 min. to marinate.  Remove chicken from marinade; discard bag and marinade.  Grill chicken on uncovered side of grill 6 min.  Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, cheese, basil and remaining 2 tbsp dressing.  Turn chicken over; place, cooked-side up, on foil on grill.  Top evenly with tomato mixture.  Close lid.  Grill an additional 8 min. or until chicken is cooked through.

I’ve done this without the basil as well because we were out and it was still great.  I’ve always just served this with a potato and veggie, but it also suggests spaghetti which I think would be great.  This is also something that you could easily make for just 2 people.  Enjoy!

    Made this for dinner tonight–it was delicious!! I didn’t use a tomato cause we’re not crazy about chunks of it. I used a little more mozz cheese just cause I love it, so I also used more of the dressing to hold it together for putting on top. (Actually, I used AT LEAST 1/2 c. of the dressing just to marinade the chicken and probably more like 1/3 c. to mix w/ the mozz cheese. I didn’t measure–just poured.) Grilled it just like the directions.

    Ron & I loved it and will definitely use this simple recipe again.
