#1 Grilled Chicken Cutlets with Summer Succotash

Put a grill pan on high heat.  Season 4 thin chicken cutlets with 1/4 teaspoons of pepper and salt each.  Grill until the cutlets are cooked through.  Turn them once.  At the same time, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a medium-high large skillet.  Mix in a cup of thawed frozen baby lima beans, 1 pint of grape tomatoes, and 1/2 cup of corn.  Cook while tossing once in a while, until the tomatoes burst.  Mix in a tablespoon of grated Parmesan cheese and 1/2 cup of torn, fresh basil leaves.  Include lemon wedges and a whole wheat roll for each portion.
