A New Twist on Grilled Chicken...

Grilled Chicken with Roasted Grape Tomatoes


Chicken Cutlets 
(marinated in YOUR favorite Italian Dressing)
Package of Grape Tomatoes
2 teaspoons Balsamic Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Garlic, Salt and Pepper
Mozzarella Cheese

Begin by preparing your chicken...

Marinade the chicken cutlets in Italian Salad Dressing for 
a few hours in the refrigerator.
I usually do this early in the morning so the chicken has time
to soak in all the goodness.  

Now, prepare the tomatoes...

Mix together the balsamic vinegar with the olive oil and
toss with the package of grape tomatoes that you have already seasoned 
with garlic, salt and pepper.
I did this step a few hours earlier and put the grape tomatoes
in a plastic container and then in the refrigerator...

Now, let's start GRILLING...

Place your chicken on the grill and cook until just about done.
Remove the chicken and place in an aluminum pan.  

Please do not use a GLASS pan!

Spread the tomatoes, along with their marinade, over the grilled chicken.
Close the grill and let cook about 5 minutes or 
until the tomatoes start to burst...

Now sprinkle the chicken with some mozzarella cheese and 
close the lid again for a few more minutes until the cheese has melted...

Doesn't that look DELICIOUS?

I like to serve this chicken with a side salad and homemade mac and cheese.

Now this is dinner!
Easy, quick and DELICIOUS.
