Recipe by Vino Girl

I like the inclusion of wheat germ in this recipe, and while it uses chicken breasts, fish would/should also work. This is from Fitness magazine.

A family favorite! I've used it for chicken breasts, pork chops and fish. The red pepper is not overpowering but just enough to know it is there. We used to grill the chicken breasts and pork chops, but not since we found this recipe.
