Italian Style Grilled Chicken with Parmesan and Sun-dried Tomatoes

This is a healthy, and extremely flavorful way to dress up boneless skinless chicken breasts. Adding just a small amount of butter on top, and using grated parmesan for a garnish, keeps the fat and calories down.

Don’t skip the anchovy paste. It may seem like a weird ingredient, but it adds a lot of flavor. Also, don’t be alarmed, the lemon juice will appear to “cook the chicken a bit, turning it white in the marinating bag."
