chicken with half of the pepper and place on the grill along with the
packet of garlic. Cook, turning often, for 30 minutes or until the chicken
is no longer pink on the inside.

over the tomatoes and eggplant slices. Move the chicken and packet of
garlic to the edge of the grill, then place the tomatoes and eggplant
slices in the middle. Grill, turning once, for 15-20 minutes or until the
eggplant is tender. About 5 minutes before the eggplant is done, add the
bread slices and grill, trunign once, until lightly browned. Arrange the
chicken,tomatoes, eggplant and bread on a large platter. Separate the heads
of garlic into cloves, squeeze each clove to extract the pulp, and spead on
