Healthy Recipes: Delicious Chicken with Grilled Salsa and Peppers

Chicken with Grilled Salsa & Peppers

The secret to this dish: vibrant, juicy tomatoes. You don’t even need to cook them: just toss with the oil, basil, and 1 clove of minced garlic.


Total time to prepare: 30 minutes

1 lb. tomatoes, chopped
5 cloves garlic, sliced
2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
1¼ lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 bell peppers, cut in ½-inch strips
1 bunch basil, chopped
Freshly ground black pepper
½ tsp. kosher salt

• Toss together the tomatoes, garlic, and oil in a disposable aluminum pie plate.
• Put the chicken between sheets of wax paper and pound to an even ½-inch thickness.
• Place the pie plate, chicken (smooth-side down), and peppers (skin-side down) on the grate and grill over a medium-hot fire until the chicken and peppers are well marked, about 5 minutes. Turn both over and cook until the chicken is tender when pierced with the tip of a knife, 1-2 minutes.
• Remove the pie plate from the grill and allow the tomatoes to cool slightly. Toss with the basil, season with pepper and up to ½ tsp. of salt, and serve with the chicken and peppers.

    1. From Chef Kate: Tomatoes and other acidic foods do not react with aluminum foil or other aluminum food containers because these are aluminum alloys. Uncoated aluminum cookware should be avoided.
