  • Portion size 4 servings


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup pasta sauce
  • 4 kaiser rolls
  • 4 Italian buns
  • 4 sweet green peppers
  • 4 red onions
  • 2 tablespoons wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Marinade: In bowl, whisk together vinegar, oil, sugar, garlic, rosemary, thyme, oregano and hot pepper flakes. Add chicken, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or for up to 8 hours.

Discarding marinade, sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill until no longer pink inside, about 6 minutes per side. Top each with mozzarella slice; cover and cook until just melted, about 1 minute.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan, heat pasta sauce. Halve rolls. Sandwich chicken, green pepper, onion and sauce in rolls.
