- Preheat the grill, setting the burners to high. Oil the grate.
- On a large plate, sprinkle the chicken with the ground fennel and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper. Lightly oil the chicken.
- Grill the chicken for 4 minutes on one side. Flip the meat over. Cover with the tomato sauce, cheese and olives. Grill for another 4 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted. Remove from the heat. Garnish with the basil.
- Serve with buttered pasta or a green salad, if desired.
Fresh mozzarella, burrata or bocconcini are all great options for this recipe. Provolone cheese is another good alternative.
