Grilled Chicken Breast and Peperonata Sandwich
Peperonata is an Italian mixture of sweet peppers, onions and garlic cooked in olive oil. Look for peppers that are firm, thick-fleshed and bright in color. Peppers contain twice as much vitamin C as oranges and are high in vitamin A and fiber. One-half cup of raw pieces contains only 14 calories.
