  1. Prepare the Chimichurri Sauce:
    • In a bowl, combine 1 cup of Al Frugoni’s Chimichurri rub with an equal part of vinegar. Mix well.
    • Allow the mixture to sit for 15 minutes to allow the herbs to expand.

    • Drizzle some olive oil over the tomatoes to coat them.
    • Set aside for grilling.
  3. Prepare the Chicken Breast:
    • Pound the chicken breast to thin them out for even cooking.
    • Spray avocado oil on the chicken breast to act as a binder.

  4. Grill the Chicken and Tomatoes:
    • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
    • Place the seasoned chicken breasts on the grill and cook until they develop a nice sear on both sides.
    • Once the chicken breasts are nearly done, add some roasted peppers, a spoonful of the prepared chimichurri sauce, and a sprinkle of shredded cheese on each breast.
    • Close the grill lid and let the cheese melt.
  5. Grill the Cherry Tomatoes and Toast the Bread:
    • While the chicken is grilling, place the marinated cherry tomatoes on the grill.
    • Cook the tomatoes until they start to blister and soften.
    • Remove the tomatoes from the grill and set them aside.
    • Toast the artisan bread slices on the grill to achieve nice grill marks.
