  • Combine the chili powder, 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, and 2 tbsp olive oil; stir well. Brush the chili mixture on both sides of the chicken breasts. Place in a shallow dish; cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  • Grill the chicken over hot coals (400 to 500 degrees) for 5-6 minutes on each side or until the chicken is done. Arrange the chicken on a serving platter; set aside, and keep warm.
  • Brush the skin of the red bell peppers with 1 tbsp olive oil. Grill the peppers, cut side up, over medium coals (300 to 350 degrees) for 6 to 8 minutes or until charred. Cut the peppers into thin strips; set aside.
  • Saute onion, jalapeno pepper, and garlic in the remaining 1 1/2 tsp olive oil in a large skillet until the onion is tender. Add the reserved sweet red pepper strips; stir well. Add the cilantro and the remaining 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar; stir well. Remove from heat. Spoon the pepper mixture over the hot chicken. Enjoy!
