Grilled Chicken with Mozzarella and Red Peppers Recipe

Grilled Chicken with Mozzarella and Red Peppers

1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon anchovy paste
3 red bell peppers, roasted* and cut into 'l/4" slices
1/3 cup cubed part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 plum tomato, cubed
5 pitted small black olives, sliced
2 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley
Two 3-ounce skinless boneless chicken breasts

1. Spray the broiler or grill rack with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat the broiler, or prepare the grill.

2. In a medium bowl, combine 1 teaspoon of the oil with the anchovy paste until well blended. Add the pep­pers, cheese, tomato, olives and parsley; toss lightly.

3. Brush the chicken with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of the oil and place on the rack. Broil the chicken 5" from the heat, until cooked through, about 5 minutes on each side. Serve the chicken breasts topped with the pepper mixture.

*To roast the bell peppers, preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with Jail; place the peppers on the baking sheet. Broil 4-6"from heat, turning frequently with tongs, until the skin is lightly charred on all sides, about 1 0 minutes. Transfer to a paper bag. Fold the bag closed and steam 10 minutes. Peel, seed and de-vein the peppers over the sink to drain the juices.
