Here's a delicious grilled meal that can easily make it to the table for weeknight dinners. Splitting the chicken breasts will help them to cook quickly and evenly.
Ingredients: 
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/4 pounds total)
  • 7 tablespoons prepared Italian dressing, divided
  • 2 bell peppers (red or green, or 1 of each), quartered
  • 1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 6 lightly packed cups arugula leaves
Method: 
Split the chicken breasts by placing them on a cutting board and using a sharp knife to slice evenly through them, while applying slight pressure on top with the other hand. Or, ask for the breasts to be split (or butterflied) in the meat department.

Prepare a grill for medium-high heat cooking. Brush chicken breasts on both sides with 3 tablespoons of of the dressing. In a small bowl, toss bell peppers with 2 tablespoons of the dressing. Grill chicken and peppers, turning occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and peppers are tender and browned, 6 to 7 minutes. 

Meanwhile, toss onion and arugula with remaining 2 tablespoons dressing and arrange on a platter. Slice chicken and peppers; place them on top of arugula.
