serves 8 ( 6 points +)
- 2 T. olive oil
- 1 large red bell pepper
- 1 large yellow bell pepper
- 2 c. vertically sliced onion
- 1 T. crushed garlic
- 1 c. halved grape tomatoes
- 1 tsp. dried basil
- 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
- 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 8 ( 4 oz. ) cutlets
- 6 T. flour

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and swirl to coat. Add peppers; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add onion and garlic; cook 10 minutes. Add tomatoes; cook until tomatoes wilt. Remove from heat, stir in basil, vinegar and 1/4 tsp. salt. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
Place chicken between 2 pieces of plastic wrap and pound to 1/4 inch thickness. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge in flour; shake off excess.
