Feta and Balsamic topped Grilled Chicken

I tried thinking of a name to make this sound fancy, but really it was just a simple dinner I threw together. And it was yummy! Perfect for the nice weather we have had around here lately.
Feta and Balsamic Grilled Chicken
serves 2

2 chicken breast halves, cleaned
Italian seasoning
salt and pepper
~2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 c. feta crumbles (I used the tomato and basil variety)
2 Tbsp basil, chopped
tomato slices - optional

1. Coat chicken breasts in Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Grill until cooked through.
2. Top each chicken breast with ~1 (heavy) Tbsp. balsamic vinegar, 2 Tbsp. feta, and 1 Tbsp. basil. Some Roma tomato slices would also be a great addition.
3. Place the chicken under the broiler for about a minute to soften the cheese and warm the balsamic/tomatoes. Or zap it in the microwave for 30 seconds if that is easier for you.
4. Serve with brown rice and a veggie (oops.). Enjoy!

Very light and refreshing. Tomatoes would be a good addition. I might try marinating the chicken breasts in some balsamic next time to see how that works.
