Here’s one of our healthy meal staples that we cook all the time. It’s full of flavor, only 200 calories, and has only five ingredients. It has all the flavors of bruschetta but with the bread…or the carbs. My kids will eat it too so it must be a winner.
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil or 1 tsp. dried basil leaves
Place a large sheet of heavy-duty foil over half of grill grate; heat grill to medium heat. Meanwhile, place chicken in resealable plastic bag. Add 1/4 cup dressing and seal bag. Turn bag over several times to evenly coat chicken with dressing. Refrigerate 10 minutes (I marinate it all day if I remember in time). Remove chicken from bag; discard bag and dressing.
Grill chicken on uncovered side of grill for about 6 minutes. Meanwhile, combine remaining 1/4 dressing, tomatoes, cheese and basil.
Turn the chicken over and place cooked-side up, on foil on the grill. Top with tomato mixture. Close lid. Grill 8 minutes or until chicken is done.
*Sometimes we add a splash of balsalmic vinegar to give it a bit more zip.
