Total Time: 45

Yield: 6 to 8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts, skinned and boned (6 ounces each)
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, very thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, very thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, very thinly sliced
  • 1 pasilla pepper, very thinly sliced (optional)
  • 1 small jalape

Instructions:

Set up your grill for direct high heat. Brush chicken breasts with 1 tablespoon oil.
Place chicken on grill, 4 inches from heat source; cook until golden brown on that side, 4—6 minutes.
Turn chicken; continue grilling until done, 4—6 minutes more. Remove from heat.
Using a fork and a chef ’s knife, cut chicken into bite-size pieces while still hot; then toss with bell pepper slices, pasilla-pepper slices, and onions (vegetables will soften a bit). Season with salt and pepper to taste. Chill in refrigerator 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together garlic, red pepper flakes, red-wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, and remaining 5 tablespoons olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Add to chicken/pepper mixture and toss well. Chill in refrigerator at least 30 minutes, up to one day.
To serve, toss chicken/pepper mixture with tomatoes. Garnish with olives and basil leaves.

Additional Notes:

Can be chilled up to one day.
