10 Medium-Sized Vine-Ripe Tomatoes, Cores Removed
2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
2 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
4 Teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Cup Fresh Basil, Chopped
2 lbs Chicken Breasts, Boneless and Skinless
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
Preheat grill or grill pan. Spray tomatoes with nonstick cooking spray and season with salt and pepper. Grill tomatoes on all sides until slightly charred. Remove and allow to cool completely. Roughly chop or slice tomatoes in quarters. Add garlic, balsamic vinegar, basil, and oil. Set aside to marinate. Meanwhile, season chicken with salt and black pepper. Spray chicken on both sides with nonstick cooking spray. Grill chicken breasts on both sides for about 4 to 5 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165. Once cooked, remove and set aside to rest for about 5 minutes. For 1 portion, plate 6 ounces of cooked chicken breast with a quarter of the tomatoes and about one tablespoon of the balsamic vinegar mixture from the bruschetta. Alternatively, you can prepare this recipe in the oven. Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Place lightly sprayed tomatoes on a sheet pan, and cook about 2 to 3 minute until charred. Lower oven to 375 degrees and place lightly sprayed chicken on a sheet pan. Cook for 20 to 25 minutes until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
