Grilled Chicken in Sun Dried Tomato Basil Vinaigrette

Yield: 6 Servings

Calories per serving: 193

Fat per serving: 8g

Ingredients

  • 4 sun-dried tomato halves (from a jar packed in oil) drained and press of oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1 ½ pounds boneless chicken breast (6 4-ounce breasts)

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, combine the sun-dried tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, garlic, olive oil, basil, salt, and pepper. Pulse until smooth. Pour half of the sauce into a small bowl for serving and half into a bowl for grilling.
  2. Preheat your gas grill to high heat. Season the chicken breasts on both sides with additional salt and pepper and cook on one side until browned, about 5 minutes. Brush the tops of the chicken breasts with the sun-dried tomato vinaigrette, flip, and brush the other sides. Continue to cook until browned and completely cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes more. Drizzle the reserved sauce over the cooked chicken before serving.

    MMMM – will be making this beauty very soon. Have everything on the list even the basil since I was very brave (not a gardener – just LOVE basil) and planted some seed this spring and it is doing so well.

    Made this tonight and it was delish! Hubby loved it too. Next time I’m going to triple the marinade/sauce and then use it for a pasta or baked potato topping. This will be a great way to use up my basil and sun dried tomatoes.

    Morning Andie! We made this chicken dish last night and it was delicious! Ended up marinating it for about 4 hours and it was super moist. Forgot to set some marinade aside for drizzling tho. My marinade didn’t get the beautiful color yours did and of course that’s what made me decide to make it! My tomatoes didn’t give it that color….any suggestions so it looks better for presentation next time? No matter, still a keeper recipe for me! Thanks!
