Grilled Chicken and Vegetables with Tomato Vinaigrette

Grilled veggies, perfectly grilled chicken, and my favorite dressing… Dinner is SERVED! The summer is great for so many reasons but one of my favorites is because of the abundance of vegetables available right from the farm. This salad is the best example I know of a summer vegetable bounty. I love how the grilled chicken and veggies are tied together with this savory tomato vinaigrette. This meal is totally customizable based on what vegetables are available to you and is sure to be a new family favorite.

Tips for Grilling Chicken

  1. Marinate your meat! Any meat that has had a change to be infused with flavor will taste better and be juicier (thanks to the addition of salt).
  2. Prep your grill: Make sure your grill is preheated and that the grates are clean! You want to make sure the grill has come up to the proper temperature. Cleaning the grates will ensure your chicken doesn’t stick. Right before you cook you can rub a little oil on your grates as well!
  3. Cook over indirect heat: While you want your grill to be preheated you do not want to cook over direct flame. Cooking over indirect flame will ensure the chicken doesn’t burn before it is cooked through inside.
  4. Cover your grill! Covering your grill will make sure the grill stays hot and that your food cooks quicker.
  5. Use a thermometer! Sure there are plenty of other tricks to figure out if your chicken is properly cooked, but the most fool proof is to use an instant read thermometer. You want it to read 165º in the thickest part of the chicken.

Can I make it without a grill?

Yes! While we love the charred smoky taste of the grill, this dish would still be perfectly acceptable on a grill pan inside of even if you need to, in a regular skillet! Do what works for you, either way a nice marinated juicy piece of chicken will be delicious with all these veggies and tomato vinaigrette.
