Meet the Author

Peggy Katalinich, food director of Family Circle, began covering food and nutrition issues in 1974, first as the food editor of the Minneapolis Star and later as food editor of Long Island’s Newsday. In 1994, she was appointed food editor of Family Circle, the world’s largest-selling women’s magazine with a circulation of 4.6 million, overseeing the staff that creates and triple-tests hundreds of recipes each year in the magazine’s kitchens. She has edited three cookbooks for Family Circle: All-time Favorite Recipes, Quick & Easy Recipes, and Best-Ever Cakes & Cookies. Her column, “Cooking Know-How,” advises cooks on contemporary topics from meals in minutes to vegetarianism and suggests the best from new products, gadgets, and food. She also wrote Foods of Long Island (Abrams), a collection of regional recipes that was named “Best Regional Cookbook” in 1986 by the IACP. In 1997, she was named food editor of year by the James Beard Foundation.

Susan McQuillan, M.S., R.D., author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Losing Weight, is a food and nutrition consultant in New York City. She is a former senior editor for American Health magazine and Reader’s Digest cookbooks (and former Family Circle “foodie”). Her articles and recipes have appeared in Family Circle, Woman’s Day, Cooking Light, Prevention, Fitness, Women’s Sports & Fitness, Parenting, BabyTalk, and Shape Cooks magazines, and on Lifetimetv.com and Clubmom.com web sites. She has co-authored two low-fat cookbooks and made several national television appearances to discuss nutrition and weight control.

Summertime Chicken

MAKES: 8 servings
PREP: 15 minutes
REFRIGERATE: 20 minutes
COOK: 15 minutes
BROIL: 8 minutes

Ingredients

Chicken:

1 container (8 ounces) low-fat plain yogurt
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
8 thin-cut boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 pounds total)

Tomato-Mozzarella Topping:

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium-size onion, cut into 16 wedges
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons water
1 pound plum tomatoes, cored, seeded, and chopped (about 4 cups)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 piece (8 ounces) fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2-inch dice
1 cup loosely packed basil leaves, chopped

Instructions

  1. Chicken: In small bowl, whisk together yogurt and vinegar. In plastic food-storage bag, combine chicken and yogurt mixture; seal and turn to coat. Refrigerate 20 minutes to marinate.

  2. Meanwhile, heat broiler, or prepare outdoor grill with medium-hot coals, or heat gas grill to medium-hot.

  3. Tomato-Mozzarella Topping: In large skillet, heat off over medium heat. Add onion; saut6 for 5 minutes or until slightly softened (the wedges will fall apart into pieces). Add vinegar and water. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook until liquid has reduced to a sauce and onion is tender, about 7 minutes.

  4. Increase heat to medium-high. Add tomatoes, salt, and pepper; cook 2 minutes. Remove skillet from heat; let cool 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in mozzarella and chopped basil.

  5. Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade.

  6. Broil or grill chicken about 4 inches from heat 3 to 4 minutes per side or until cooked through. Place chicken on large platter. Scoop 1/4 cup topping on each chicken piece. Serve immediately or let cool to room temperature.
