And nothing beats an easy summer dish made entirely on the grill so you don’t have to heat up your kitchen! More grilled chicken recipes I love are Zesty Lime Grilled Chicken with Pineapple Salsa and Grilled Chicken Bruschetta.

Cooking vegetables on the grill is easy and the vegetables taste incredible when edges get all charred. The best way to do this is to purchase a grill pan (or two). You can also get a vegetable basket so the vegetables don’t fall through the grates. Then spritz the vegetables with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper. They also sell disposable ones in the supermarket which also work fine.

For best results, get familiar with your grill. Some cook hotter in the back so keep that in mind when grilling and move things around accordingly.

Grilled chicken breast, zucchini, red peppers and asparagus topped with a honey balsamic dressing – this is SO good, I know you'll be making this all summer and nothing beats an easy summer dish made entirely on the grill so you don't have to heat up your kitchen!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless thin sliced chicken cutlets
  • 3 tbsp homemade pesto, or store bought
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • juice from 1/2 lime
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • kosher salt
  • 1 lb asparagus, 1 bunch, tough ends removed
  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
  • olive oil cooking spray

Instructions

  • Marinate chicken with pesto, garlic, red pepper flakes, lime juice and 1/2 teaspoon salt at least 1 hour, or overnight for best results.
  • Mix oil, balsamic vinegar, honey and 1/4 tsp salt in a small bowl.
  • Heat a grill over medium-high, be sure grates are clean and well oiled to prevent sticking.
  • Put veggies on 1 large grill tray or 2 smaller trays (or cook in batches), spray with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and cook, turning constantly until the edges are browned, about 6 to 8 minutes. Set aside on a dish.
  • Cook the chicken about 4 to 5 minutes on each side, until grill marks appear and the chicken is cooked though, transfer to a platter, too with the veggies and pour the balsamic dressing over everything.

  1. So simple and seriously tastes like something from a restauarant.  I was pleasantly surprised – this will be another one added to the regular rotation! 

  2. Delicious marriage of flavors!  We grilled this recipe tonight after I showed my husband this recipe.  It was so delicious and will definitely be a big part of our summer grilling menu.

  4. This is 5*s in our book. It’s not fancy but my husband and I would have eaten the entire recipe if we hadn’t exerted some self-control.  Normally, my husband needs chicken slathered in a sauce but he loved this. We both enjoy our vegetables and the grill did a great job in bringing out their flavor.  And he is not a man who loves to grill.

    This couldn’t be much easier. and might even be okay for company.  Simple, fresh and healthy.  Loved it!

  5. chicken left overnight was fantastic. We also added broccoli and they actually tasted the best out of other veggies we also cooked it with zuccihini, red bell peppers, etc. We both liked the bit of a charred taste it had and felt as though it soaked up all the sauce haha.

  6. Made this last night and the family loved it. My husband said I needed to keep this in my recipe rotation

  7. Started making this last summer. Finally nice enough weather today to make again this Spring.  So simple and flavorful.  Family delighted to know it’s back in the rotation!!

  8. I don’t normally post on these things but wanted to tell you that I have made quite a few of your recipes and haven’t had a bad one yet!! I made the honey balsamic chicken tonight and it was yummy!!! My husband even liked it and he isn’t a chicken fan. Thank You!!! I love your Instagram stories too!! ?

  9. This is a great recipe. Had the time to marinate it overnight and it was so good! Only a family of 2, so made half recipe and had a bonus lunch leftover.

  10. I’ve made this many times with lots of different veggies and it’s always amazing. I can’t remember if she uses breasts or thighs but the BBQ’d thigh meat is soooo good! This website was a total jackpot find!

  11. This was so good! I did not have time to marinate and used a tube of basil found at the grocery store and it was just as good. My husband doesn’t like veggies usually and he went back for seconds and thirds! The balsamic dressing poured over at the end is delicious!

  12. Made this last night. So yummy — grilled chicken was perfect. I roasted veggies in the oven. Thanks for your great recipes — I use them all the time!

  13. Delicious! My husband won’t eat pesto so I mixed the dressing ingredients with the lime and crushes red pepper. Turned out so yummy! Thank you for this great site.

  14. Wonderful recipe. The only change is I used 2 full 12 oz boneless breasts with your ‘skinny pesto’, because that is what I had on hand. I just cooked it longer using an instant read thermometer to make sure it did not get over or under done (165 degrees). I then cut the breast into slices on an angle. The flavors were great, marinating for only 6 hours. One other tip on the veggies, get the sweetest red pepper you can find. It really makes a difference in the combination of all the flavors. 

  15. Absolutely delicious and easy!  I love the homemade pesto.  The chicken was so juicy and tender with a ton of flavor.  Thumbs up from the family

  16. Made this tonight and it was delicious!!! Everyone cleaned their plates. Marinated the chicken for over 24 hours and it was very flavorful. Definitely would make this again. 

  17. This recipe is not only delicious, it’s healthy and super easy to make.  There’s a lot of flavor with the chicken marinade as well as with the balsamic vinegar, honey mixture. This is a keeper! 

  18. I’m sorry you’ve sold out to the almighty dollar. Pushing products for financial profit took you off of my list of heroes. Thanks for the help you gave me when I lost 75# last year but I’m no longer a fan. Very disappointed. 

  19. Doubt any child under 12 months would be eating this but they might be fed raw honey. Raw honey should not be consumed by children under 12 months of age. Google it if you want.

  20. As someone who LOVES to cook but woke up today in that mood where I just didn’t have any ideas or motivation – waking up to see this post, AND having all of it on hand is a WIN! Making the marinade now, have a great weekend!
