By marinading and then grilling the chicken and the veggies, this dish has a wonderful grilled flavor served over pasta, its a filling meal. It is also great served cold. Make sure to not cut the veggies too thin so they dont slip thru the grill grates. I have also done this inside on the foreman type grill.

This was a delicious light dinner. Very easy to prepare and very fresh-tasting. My whole family loved this and I will be making it again. I didn't have any rosemary so I used basil instead and some whole button mushrooms instead of portabellos. I also sliced the chicken breasts into long strips before marinating for extra flavor.
