The juices released from the tomatoes make a slightly acidic sauce that works perfectly with the briny olives and aromatic basil. While your grill is hot, place a few slices of hearty bread on the hot grates and toast them 1 to 3 minutes per side or until they are well marked. Serve alongside the packets to sop up the sauce. Be sure to use heavy-duty foil for the grill packets, and seal them tightly to keep in all the steam and juices as your meal cooks. You can also make these packets in the oven if you prefer. Bake them on a sheet pan at 450°F for 20 minutes or until done.

20 oz, 4 (5-ounce breasts)

table salt

¼ tsp

  3. 3 Toss together zucchini, tomatoes, olives, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper in medium bowl. Arrange vegetable mixture evenly over chicken. Crimp foil into packets, making tight seal.
