Grilled Chicken with Feta and Red Pepper Sauce

Grilled Chicken with Feta and Red Pepper Sauce

Sweet pepper sauce is a perfect counterpoint for full-bodied feta in this herby grilled chicken.

To grill the peppers, preheat grill. Place two red bell peppers on grill and cook, turning until charred all over. Place peppers in a paper or plastic bag to let steam for 10 minutes. Peel and seed peppers.
