Grilled Chicken with Tomato and Onion Topping #Recipe @PegCochran


This is the perfect recipe for summer when tomatoes are growing in everyone's garden, appearing at farmer's market and still on the vine in the stores and when everyone wants to be outside grilling.  The recipe came in an email from Food and Wine.  There were specific quantities and I think there might have been an ingredient (an herb?) that I didn't have so this is my version.  The quantity of anything depends on what you like, have on hand or how many you are serving.  And while the recipe called for chicken, I think you could serve this over anything--fish, beef or even go meatless with pasta.

Chicken breasts, brined and pounded
Ripe tomatoes--regular tomatoes and grape tomatoes
Red onion
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
Garlic clove
Salt & pepper to taste

I like to brine my chicken breasts in water mixed with some kosher salt.  It doesn't have to be for long--30 minutes will do it but it results in much more tender chicken.  I also pound them to even out the thickness for even cooking.

While the chicken breasts are brining, prepare the topping.  Slice the tomatoes and cut the grape tomatoes in half. Thinly slice the red onion and mince the garlic.  Place the vegetables on a platter or plate, pour a couple of tablespoons of olive oil over them, sprinkle on the balsamic vinegar, mix in the minced garlic and season with salt and pepper to taste. Leave vegetables to marinate for up to a couple of hours.

Grill chicken on a gas grill, charcoal grill or inside on a grill pan.


Serve chicken topped with vegetables. 


Writer-in-residence Penelope Parish will need to use every trick in her quaint British bookshop to unravel a murderous plot that threatens to ruin a ducal wedding.

The wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Upper Chumley-on Stoke has all the makings of a fairy tale, complete with a glowing bride and horse-drawn carriage. But it wouldn't be much of a story without a villain, and as American Gothic novelist Penelope Parish is coming to learn, happy-ever-afters are as fraught in this charming British town as they are in her books.

When the Duke's former girlfriend is found murdered at the reception it's up to Penelope and her newfound family at the Open Book bookshop to catch the killer before they strike again.
