  • Total time 30 minutes
  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups cherry tomatoes , halved
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil , divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt , divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes (optional)
  • 8 chicken cutlets (about 680 g total)
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 16 basil leaves
  • 250 g fresh mozzarella cheese , drained and cut in 16 slices
Salad:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • pinch each salt and pepper
  • 8 cups baby arugula
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese

Method

Preheat barbecue to medium-high heat (about 375°F). Arrange two 16- x 12-inch pieces of foil on work surface. Toss together tomatoes, garlic, half of the oil, 1/2 tsp of the salt and hot pepper flakes (if using); spoon onto centres of foil. Bring together 2 opposite ends of foil and fold down, leaving room inside for expansion; fold in remaining sides to seal. Place packets on grill; close lid and cook until tomatoes are softened, about 4 minutes.

Meanwhile, brush chicken with remaining oil and 1/2 tsp salt. Place on grill; close lid and cook until bottoms are grill marked, about 2 minutes. Flip chicken; top each cutlet with 1 tbsp of the Parmesan, 2 basil leaves and 2 slices of the mozzarella. Close lid and cook until cheese is melted and chicken is no longer pink inside, about 3 minutes. Divide chicken and tomatoes among plates.

Salad: In large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Add arugula and Parmesan; toss to coat. Serve with chicken, tomatoes and bread (if using).
