Grilled Bruschetta Chicken

Doug pulled out the little Coleman grill my parents got him last Christmas, and we whipped this up! It was totally easy and delicious! I definitely recommend it. Also, I found it in a Kraft magazine and if you want to actually watch a video on how to make it here is the link:

Grilled Bruschetta Chicken
1/4 cup Sun-Dried Tomato Dressing, divided
4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)
1 medium tomato, finely chopped
1/2 cup Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil or 1 tsp. dried basil leaves (I didn't have fresh, so I used dry)

PLACE large sheet of heavy-duty foil over half of grill grate; preheat grill to medium heat. Pour 2 Tbsp. of the dressing over chicken in resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Turn bag over several times to evenly coat chicken with the dressing. Refrigerate 10 min. to marinate. Remove chicken from marinade; discard bag and marinade.

GRILL chicken on uncovered side of grill 6 min. Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, cheese, basil and remaining 2 Tbsp. dressing.

TURN chicken over; place, cooked-side up, on foil on grill. Top evenly with tomato mixture. Close lid. Grill an additional 8 min. or until chicken is cooked through (165ºF).

*Note- I didn't have the Sun-dried tomato dressing marinade on hand, so I made my own marinade with vinegar, olive oil, salt, and a bit of garlic powder. It gave it a good taste, although I bet the sun-dried tomato would be really good it you have it. Italian would probably work well, too.
