Charred Ratatouille & Grilled Chicken


1. Prepare grill (medium-high heat). Place vegetables in large bowl and drizzle with oil. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper and toss to coat.

3. Place chicken breasts in same large bowl. Turn to coat with any remaining oil in bowl. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
4. Grill chicken, covered, until cooked through, about 6 minutes per side. Let stand 5 minutes.
5. Coarsely chop vegetables and transfer to another large bowl. Add basil and vinegar and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Slice chicken into 1/2-inch-thick slices and serve with ratatouille.COOK'S NOTE: For you traditionalists, go ahead and use balsamic vinegar.
