Marinate the chicken in a quick savory mixture of tomato paste, olive oil, lots of garlic, and fresh parsley for the perfect accompaniment to grilled bread.  One of several healthy dinner recipes the family will absolutely enjoy. In addition, this is one of the recipes I love as far as cheap dinner ideas goes as well.
