Chicken and Ratatouille



Today I reached for the Binder. The Binder is filled with magazine and newspaper recipes I have collected since we have been married. My Mom had a drawer in the kitchen for her recipes. I have a Binder. I pulled out a recipe from Bon Appetit June 2008. Grilled Chicken and Ratatouille. Our grill is not completely operational so I did this on the stove top.

Chicken and Ratatouille (2 servings) -

Ingredients-
1 small zucchini, cut in 1/2 inch cubes
1 small eggplant, peeled, cut in 1/2 inch cubes
1/2 red bell pepper, cut in 1/2 inch cubes
1 small onion, cut in 1/2 inch cubes
3/4 cup grape tomatoes, cut in 1/2
2 tbsp olive oil
1# boneless chicken breast
1 1/2 tsp. red wine vinegar

Method-
Heat a tbsp of olive oil in a saute pan. When it the oil is hot add the onion and peppers. Saute for about 4 minutes. Add the zucchini, eggplant, and tomatoes. Saute until cooked through. Seasoning with salt, pepper, oregano, basil, crushed red pepper (optional), and parsley.

While the vegetables are cooking, salt and pepper the chicken breasts. In another saute pan heat a tbsp of olive oil. When it the oil is hot add the chicken. Saute until cooked through. Slice the chicken crosswise into 1/2 inch slices and serve with the ratatouille.
