Yogurt sauce: Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate.

Stuffing: In a bowl, mix lemon zest, parsley, garlic, capers, anchovies and pancetta with enough oil to hold it all together. Using a knife or small spatula, separate the skin from the breast and slide in the stuffing. Refrigerate stuffed breasts until it's time to cook them.

Indirect heat grilling: Preheat one side of barbecue to high. Lightly oil breasts and pepper them. Once the grill is very hot, brown breasts both sides.

Lower heat to medium-high and place breasts over the closed burner. Close the lid and cook 17 to 20 minutes or so, depending on size of breasts, until chicken is cooked through.

Thread tomatoes on skewers and brush with olive oil. Season and grill about 5 minutes or until tomatoes begin to split.

Serve chicken breasts with grilled tomatoes, yogurt sauce and, if desired, quinoa.
