Skinny Tomato Basil Chicken

 

This is a great summer dish that combine fresh produce and your backyard grill, which means you won’t have to heat up your kitchen!  You can marinate the chicken for as little as two hours, or up to 24 hours.  Fresh tomatoes and fresh basil make this a nice refreshing meal on a hot summer day!

Skinny Tomato Basil Chicken

  • 12 boneless, skinless chicken tenders
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped basil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1-1/2 tbsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp salt

At least two hours before serving (or up to 24 hours), combine 1/2 cup olive oil, balsamic vinegar, dried basil, dried mustard, and minced garlic.  Place in a large ziplock bag along with chicken.  Keep in the refrigerator, turning occasionally, until ready to grill.

Heat grill and grill chicken on each side until cooked through.  Place on serving platter.  Top with diced tomato, chopped fresh basil, and fresh parmesan cheese.
