  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, toss squash and tomatoes with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and remaining garlic clove, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Grill vegetables until charred and slightly softened, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Let cool slightly, then cut into large chunks. Combine vegetables in a bowl with basil; cover, and set aside.

  • Remove chicken from marinade, and season with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper; discard marinade. Grill chicken until browned and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  • Transfer vegetables to a serving platter. Place grilled chicken on top, and garnish with more basil.

Cook's Notes

To get grill marks on the chicken, place cutlets at an angle in a grill pan, and don't move them until you flip them over.

I used my own homegrown squash and tomatoes. Except, I don't have the heart to eat my own chickens. They are too cute.

This was a huge hit! My kids (ages 4 years and 18 months) demolished it. That is always my sign of a good recipe! I think the only thing I will do different next time is marinate the chicken for just a bit longer.

This sound just delicious and I think the chicken would cook up in a snap in my Panini maker while sauteeing the squash, tomato and basil on my stovetop. I now know what is for dinner tonight..
