Chill 4 plates. Place chicken cutlet on bottom (can be served cold or hot off the grill) Top each with tomato-strawberry mixture. Sprinkle with chives. Remember to really impress your guests and serve with a chilled salad fork- I learned this from Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar- such a nice touch.
