Grilled Bruschetta Chicken

I love easy recipes that also look fancy and taste really good which is why I love the Kraft Foods website. This recipe is one of our favorites that we have found on there and we've adapted it slightly to make indoors on our griddle (for when it's 30 degrees outside).

Grilled Bruschetta Chicken

1/4 cup Sun-Dried Tomato Dressing, divided
4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)
1 medium tomato, finely chopped
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese (we usually just use colby-jack and it tastes great)
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil or 1 tsp. dried basil leaves

PLACE large sheet of heavy-duty foil over half of grill grate; preheat grill to medium heat. Pour 2 Tbsp. of the dressing over chicken in resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Turn bag over several times to evenly coat chicken with the dressing. Refrigerate 10 min. to marinate. Remove chicken from marinade; discard bag and marinade.

GRILL chicken on uncovered side of grill 6 min. Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, cheese, basil and remaining 2 Tbsp. dressing.

TURN chicken over; place, cooked-side up, on foil on grill. Top evenly with tomato mixture. Close lid. Grill an additional 8 min. or until chicken is cooked through (165ºF).

And I love the recipe books they send you in the mail for free. Occasionally you can get offers to try some of their products for free.
