Grillin Goodness

Today was one of those days where the sun was poking through the clouds and it beckoned me to the grill. I was delighted to see that chicken was on the menu tonight. It lends itself very well to the grill scene. For the fullest flavors, grow your own herbs and use them when they are young. I like to serve this dish with steamed rice and broccoli.

Tonight's rating? 8.5

Here's to you and your culinary adventures, friend!

Grilled Tomato and Herb Chicken
Serves 4

4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/4 cup Kraft tomato-bacon dressing*, divided
1 small fresh tomato, gently seeded and chopped
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
2 TBS fresh parsley, minced
1 TBS fresh basil, minced OR 1/2 scant tsp Italian seasoning

Place chicken in resealable plastic bag. Add 2 Tbsp. dressing; seal bag. Turn bag over several times to evenly coat chicken with dressing. Marinate for a least 10 min.

Preheat grill to medium high heat.

Remove chicken from bag; discard bag and dressing. Grill chicken 6 min. Meanwhile, combine remaining dressing, tomatoes, cheese and herbs.

Move chicken to one side of the grill. Lay a piece of foil on the grill. Place, grilled-side up, on foil. Top with tomato mixture. Close lid. Grill 8 min. or until chicken is done.

*You can use Italian dressing in place of the tomato bacon dressing
