Grilling for ‘Merica | Chicken with Grilled Veg

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?
