Roasted red peppers are one of those rare ingredients that taste as good from a jar as they do made from scratch. Jarred peppers are typically preserved in a simple brine of water, salt, and citric acid. As versatile as they are delicious, the peppers are great whole on burgers and sandwiches, coarsely chopped and stirred into pastas and salads, or finely chopped in salsas and dips.
Instead of cutting the chicken into strips, marinate and grill the breasts whole. Coat the breasts in the marinade and let stand for at least 5 and up to 30 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare a medium-hot fire on one side of a grill. Set the chicken breasts on the grill directly over the heat and cook, turning once, until starting to brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to indirect heat, close the grill, and cook without turning until charred and cooked through, about 10 minutes longer. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices.
