About this Recipe

Freshly roasted peppers with char grilled flavour. Salty capers, fresh garlicky-herb dressing and tender chicken slices. Italia Bella!


.25 cup (60 mL) Minced red onion
.5 cup (125 mL) Chopped fresh basil
.3 cup (75 mL) Lemon juice
2 tbsp (30 mL) White balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp (15 mL) Dijon mustard
1 Clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp (15 mL) Honey
.75 cup (175 mL) Olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 Package Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® Thin Slice Chicken Breasts
4 Red peppers
2 Cloves garlic, sliced
3 tbsp (45 mL) Capers
.5 Red onion, thinly sliced
1 tbsp (15 mL) Chopped fresh thyme


PREHEAT BBQ to high.

COMBINE all ingredients for dressing/marinade in a small bowl. Pour ½ into a large re-sealable plastic bag. Add chicken to the bag. Refrigerate 60 minutes.

PLACE peppers directly on the grill and char on all sides, about 20-30 minutes. Remove to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Once cool enough to handle, peel off outer charred layer and remove seeds and stems. Cut into 2-3” (5-8 cm) wide strips. Place in a large bowl.

ADD capers, garlic, onions, thyme and remaining dressing to the bowl with the peppers.

REDUCE BBQ heat to medium-high. Place chicken slices on the grill and barbeque 3-4 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Remove and slice chicken into 2-3” (5-8 cm) pieces.

ADD chicken to salad mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Chill. Arrange on a platter and serve cold.
