Ingredients:  
8 OZ. small red and yellow cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered, depending on size

2 TBL. Chopped drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes

2 TSP. drained capers (roughly chopped, if large)

TSP. minced garlic

1 TBL. Sherry vinegar

2 TSP. lightly chopped fresh thyme leaves; plus sprigs for garnish

3 TBL. Plus 2 TSP. extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

2 large (6-8 oz.) skinless, boneless chicken halves, rinsed and patted dry, butterflied

Directions:
Directions:
In a small bowl combine the cherry tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, capers, garlic, sherry vinegar, 1 tsp. of the thyme, 3 Tbl. of the olive oil, tsp. salt and a few grinds of pepper. Set aside, stirring occasionally to let the flavors combine.

Heat a gas grill to high. Put the chicken in a shallow nonreactive pan or plate. Rub the chicken all over with salt (about tsp. for each piece of chicken), a few grinds of pepper, and the remaining 1 tsp. thyme. Drizzle tsp. olive oil over each side of each piece of chicken and rub all over.

Lay the butterflied breasts on the hot grill grates and cook, covered, until the chicken has grill marks, 1- minutes. With tongs, rotate the breasts 90 degrees (to get a crosshatch of grill marks) and continue grilling until grill marks form, another 1- minutes. Flip the breasts and cook the second side in the same way but for a little less time, grilling for one minute in one direction and 1 minute in another, until cooked through.

Transfer the breast immediately to two warm serving plates, stir the tomato mixture and spoon equal amounts (it will be a generous portion) over each portion of chicken.) Garnish with a sprig of thyme, if you like.

When you butterfly the meat, it will make it thinner and more uniform in thickness so it will cook better. Cut horizontally in half.
