Grilling for ‘Merica | Chicken with Grilled Veg

20140703-204716-74836148.jpg
As we lead into the most patriotic of weekends, you could carb load and binge on sweets trying your best to get diabetes OR fire up the grill, smoke a whole chicken, then grill veggies for a sensational chicken pasta salad.

This is one of my go-to summer dishes. Meat. Veggies. Pasta. Can’t go wrong. Tonight’s included smoked chicken, fresh carrots, broccoli, yellow onion and mezzi rigatoni.

And like a true American, I took a little something from another country. Italy. The X factor was small slices of pecorino cheese. That chunk of cheese may be one of my best purchases this summer. It adds saltiness and a little bite to everything it touches.

What are you grilling this weekend?
