Grilled chicken and veggies one day, salad the next

Grilled stuffed chicken breasts on vegetables.

Grilled stuffed chicken breasts on vegetables.

One way to keep grilled chicken breasts moist is to slip a little creamy stuffing between the skin and flesh. Here, a mixture of feta, basil, and olive oil also adds flavor to breasts on the bone. To accompany them, grill farmers’ market vegetables — zucchini, summer squash, and cubanelle peppers — letting them char in spots for a smoky essence.

Extra chicken and vegetables, along with crisp romaine, briny Kalamata olives, cherry tomatoes, and feta go into a composed salad for another day. Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette and you’re ready to dine on a porch, patio, or picnic bench.
