Foil-Pack Bruschetta Chicken

Prep: 10 minutes
Grill: 20 minutes • Serves: 4

1 garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2medium white onion, sliced
1 cup halved grape tomatoes
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1-1/4 cups seasoned croutons, crushed
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves

1.Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. In medium bowl, whisk garlic, vinegar, oregano, salt and pepper; slowly drizzle in oil whisking constantly. Stir in onion and tomatoes.

2.Tear four 12 x 24-inch sheets aluminum foil; arrange sheets horizontally. In center of each sheet, evenly divide half the tomato mixture; place 1 chicken breast over tomatoes and evenly top chicken with remaining tomato mixture. For each packet, tightly crimp top and bottom sides of foil over chicken; fold and tightly crimp both ends of foil.

3.Place packets on hot grill rack; cover and cook 20 minutes or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 160°. Carefully open top of packets; evenly sprinkle with croutons and cheese. Reseal packets; let stand 3 minutes or until cheese melts. (Internal temperature of chicken will rise to 165° upon standing.) Open packets; evenly sprinkle with basil.
