Grilled Chicken and Vegetable Hero

    For this Grilled Chicken and Vegetable Hero, choose sweet red or orange bell peppers for a colorful way to add 11 times more beta-carotene.

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)
  • Calories per serving: 377

Ingredients

  • (4-oz) chicken cutlets
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • (6-oz) red or orange bell pepper, quartered
  • small (4-oz) zucchini, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • small (5-oz) eggplant, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • (3-oz) whole-wheat hoagie rolls, split lengthwise
  • 4 teaspoons store-bought olive tapenade
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves

Preparation

1. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high. Rub chicken with 1 tsp oil and sprinkle with a pinch each salt and pepper; grill 4 minutes per side or until cooked through.

2. Toss cut vegetables with remaining 2 tsp oil and a pinch each salt and pepper; grill 5 to 7 minutes per side until tender.

3. Slice chicken. Spread rolls with tapenade, and fill with chicken, vegetables, and basil, if desired.

Note:

Forget the regular ol’ green peppers. Choose sweet red or orange instead for a colorful way to add 11 times more beta-carotene.
