Ingredients

Chicken:

  • 2 (8 ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

  • 4 small sprigs fresh rosemary, stemmed and roughly chopped

  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar or white wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons Mazola® Corn Oil

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

Toppings: Mediterranean option (see other options below)

  • ½ red bell pepper, seeded and sliced

  • ½ green bell pepper, seeded and sliced

  • ½ yellow onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup crushed tomatoes with oregano, basil, garlic

  • 2 tablespoons capers

  • ½ cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Place 1 chicken breast between two pieces of plastic wrap on a cutting board. Pound chicken with a flat meat mallet or rolling pin until the chicken is 1/2-inch thick. Cut the pounded breast in half and repeat with the other piece of chicken. You will end up with 4 pieces of chicken.

  2. Place the chicken, garlic, rosemary, sherry vinegar, oil, salt and pepper in a large resealable bag. Seal and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours.

  3. Preheat grill pan or large skillet to medium hot.

  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and drain; discard any remaining marinade.

  5. Cook the chicken for about 3 to 4 minutes on one side.

  6. Mediterranean Topping Option: While the chicken cooks, grill the peppers and onions on the same grill pan or in a skillet sprayed with cooking spray for 2 to 3 minutes.

  7. Flip the chicken and top each piece with an equal amount of crushed tomatoes, grilled peppers and onions, capers, cheese and parsley. Cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes until chicken is cooked through and cheese is starting to melt. Serve immediately.

  8. *Hawaiian Topping Option (see ingredients below): While the chicken cooks, grill the pineapple and onions on the same grill pan or in a skillet sprayed with cooking spray for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the chicken and top each piece with an equal amount of crushed tomatoes, grilled pineapple and onions, black olives, cheese and parsley. Cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes until chicken is cooked through and cheese is starting to melt. Serve immediately.

  9. **Mexican Topping Option (see ingredients below): While the chicken cooks, grill the jalapeno peppers on the same grill pan or in a skillet sprayed with cooking spray for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the chicken and top each piece with an equal amount of crushed tomatoes, grilled jalapeno peppers, scallions, cheese, cilantro and oregano.
