Marinating chicken for pizza, ideas please

I am making a few pizzas tonight and one of them will be a chicken pizza including the following toppings;

Mushroom, Chicken breast, Onion, Cheese, Green Capsicum

I am after some suggestions to what i can marinate the chicken in. I only want it to be a light marinade and not an over-powering taste but i dont want it to taste like plain ol' chicken either. I made a chicken pizza with the same ingredients last weekend and just marinated the chicken in in a bit of basil, salt, pepper, olive oil and paprika but it turned out a bit tastless... maybe i should just up the quantity of the above?

Thanks in advance.

A pesto or chimichurri sauce would be good.

If you have a favorite brand of bottled Italian dressing, that also makes a terrific chicken marinade. I often toss a cut up a chicken into a Ziploc bag with a bottle of Italian dressing for a few hours or even overnight. Gives it a nice tang, & is both easy & inexpensive to boot.

Well i gave the Chimichurri a go and it turned out really nice :)

I may marinate it for longer next time though but it did have a very nice taste and wasnt over-powering at all.
