Ingredients

for the chicken-

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup store bought italian flavored marinade

for the cucumber bruschetta-

  • 1/2 cup peeled, diced english cucumber
  • 2 roma tomatoes diced
  • 8 basil leaves torn or chopped
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese shavings
  • 1/8 teaspoon minced garlic optional
  • 1 teaspoon good quality balsamic vinegar
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Place chicken breasts in plastic container or leak-proof food storage bag with italian flavored marinade. Stir to coat and refrigerate until ready to grill.
  • Preheat outdoor grill to high. Lightly grease grill. Place chicken breasts on hot grill and reduce heat to medium. Cook about 5 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked thoroughly. {This really depends on the thickness of the chicken. Use a thermometer or cut it open to be sure you have it cooked all the way! You should see no pink!}
  • While the chicken is cooking, chop up and stir together all the ingredients for the bruschetta topping.
  • Remove chicken from the grill, cover with foil and let rest 5-10 minutes.
  • When you are ready to serve, top chicken with cucumber bruschetta. Serve immediately.
