A PERFECT Summertime Chicken......

This grilled chicken SCREAMS summertime. Pound out the chicken so that it is nice and tender and cooks evenly on the grill. In a large bowl combine a salad dressing of your choice (Italian, sun dried tomato, etc) and a bunch of fresh basil. You need enough to cover the chicken generously. I used about a cup for 3 chicken breasts and 2 Tbs of fresh basil. Let it marinade for at least 30 minutes but the longer it sits there the better. Overnight is fine too!!!
In another bowl combine some tomato's, fresh basil, fresh mozzarella, and salt and pepper to taste!! For 3 chicken breasts I used 1 tomato 4 Tbsp fresh basil, and probably about a cup of fresh mozzarella.

Now first you want to grill the chicken. Pre-heat the grill on high when ready to grill you want to turn down the heat to Med-Low and grill the chicken for about 6 min on each side. When finished grilling place the Tomato-cheese mixture on top of each chicken and grill for 2-4 min. longer just so the cheese gets all melted.
We had our chicken with some rosemary potato's and teriyaki zucchini.
