Grilled Chicken with Parsley Salad and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Grilled Chicken with Parsley Salad and Sun-Dried Tomatoes Recipe

Adapted from Darina Allen. I made adjustments to the quantities in the basil dressing as it seemed like too much oil (1 pint in the original recipe). The original recipe also did not specify how much parsley to use so I assumed 2 cups of parsley was roughly 4 handfuls.
