Grilled Chicken with Tomato Salsa

I love chicken. It’s cheap, it’s versatile, it’s high in protein, low in fat – low cholesterol. My poor father just found out that he has high cholesterol so he’s been trying to stick to just chicken and fish. Poor guy loves cheese. Loves mozzarella. Every time we go back to China he’d pack three big blocks of parmesan cheese for his late night cravings when he comes home from work. No more. Anyway, here’s a nice light recipe for the summer if you have high cholesterol or if you simply want to keep slim for the beach. Takes 10 minutes. No, less.

Tomato Salsa
10 cherry tomatoes, finely chopped
3 large leaves of basil, finely chopped
1 sprig parsley, finely chopped
4 pieces of sun dried tomatoes, finely chopped
4 large olives, finely chopped
1 tbsp raisins, soaked in hot water for ten minutes, then finely chopped

Chicken breast

Mix all the salsa ingredients, season and reserve.  Rub the chicken breasts with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper.  Put them under a hot grill and flip over after a couple of minutes.  Serve with salsa.
