Fresh tomato sauces are versatile. They cook quickly and preserve the fresh taste of the sun-ripened fruit. Toss them with pasta, serve over grilled meats or vegetables, add to a salad as a dressing or spread on toasted slices of French bread for crostini.

Try the recipe as is, or think of it as a platform for your own variations: Add chopped olives, mix in a little vinegar, play around with herbs, or spice it up with crushed red pepper flakes.

The chicken can be broiled instead of grilled.
