    Bev's Note:

    A grill recipe to use your summer vegetables! This recipe works well with chicken, but another option is to substitute pork loin.

      Bev you have done it again, another 5 star recipe! Perhaps in the instructions the marinade ingredients could be placed at the bottom of the ingredient list so there is no confusion where tthe marinade cuts off. I loved the tomato & zuke in the chicken it adds a subtle flavor. I took the liberty of increasing the garlic to 2 cloves and added 2 chopped jalapeno to the tomato & zuke stuffing. Great recipe. I'm now going to look through your others MMMmmmm good Thanks Bev
