Grilled Chicken and Red Pepper Focaccia

Top Review by Jitta

I changed this recipe idea by serving the chicken with a tossed green leaf salad and the roasted peppers on the side and the bread in the middle of the table, however I was in a rush to make dinner and only allowed my chicken to marinate for about an hour. The meal was good but a little bland. it would have been amazing had i let the marinade sit for maybe 4hrs.
