Grilled Chicken with Veggies

Here’s a fun way to enjoy veggies – grilled. Not only do you get to enjoy the outdoors while making them, you get to enjoy tasty veggies. Seriously. Grilling does something amazing to veggies. It makes them¬†irresistibly¬†delicious. Last night we decided to grill some chicken. I had some veggies (mushrooms, red onion and red pepper) that needed to be used up so I thought it would be a good idea to grill them to go along with the chicken. I did the preparation; Ken did the grilling. I served the chicken and veggies over rice (seasoned with salt and country crock spread) and topped it with a super easy to make mushroom gravy. Heh, I got a little creative with the mushroom gravy. I didn’t really have anything around to make a gravy so I used a can of Cream of Mushroom soup that I had. The meal was very tasty and I wish we had more leftover. There was only enough for me to take to work for lunch today. I hope you enjoy this recipe.

  • 2 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 C Italian dressing
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 16oz package of whole white mushrooms, stems removed
  • Seasoning of your choice (I used Trader Joe’s South African Smoke Seasoning)
  • 1 can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1/4 tsp chicken bouillon
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 C water (or more if you want a thinner gravy)
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Rice seasoned with salt and butter or country crock
  • Marinate the chicken in the Italian Dressing for about an hour
  • Combine the veggies, olive oil and seasoning and mix well
  • Grill the chicken over indirect medium heat for about 20-25 min or until it reaches an internal temp of 165
  • Grill the veggies in a grill wok for about 20 minutes over direct medium head stirring occasionally
  • To prepare the gravy, whisk the mushroom soup and water together in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the chicken bouillon and garlic powder and reduce to a simmer.¬†
  • Serve the grilled chicken and veggies over rice and top with the mushroom gravy.
