26 Aug Grilled Chicken Ratatouille

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise
  • 1 red bell pepper, halved lengthwise, stemmed and seeded
  • 4 small tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 1 small eggplant, cut into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Canola or olive oil cooking spray
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar

Directions

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Combine oil, basil, marjoram and salt in a small bowl and reserve 1 tablespoon of the mixture in another small bowl; set aside.
  3. Coat both sides of bell pepper, eggplant, zucchini, tomato and onion pieces with cooking spray. Grill the vegetables, turning once, until soft and charred in spots, about 5 minutes per side for the pepper, 4 minutes per side for the eggplant and zucchini and 3 minutes per side for the tomatoes and onion.
  4. Rub the tablespoon of reserved herb mixture on both sides of chicken and sprinkle with pepper. Grill the chicken until cooked through and no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  5. Transfer the grilled vegetables to a cutting board and chop into 1-inch pieces. Return to the bowl and toss with vinegar and the remaining herb mixture. Serve the grilled chicken with the ratatouille. 4 Servings
