•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

1.Marinate chicken with pesto, garlic, red pepper flakes, lime juice and 1/2 teaspoon salt at least 1 hour, or overnight for best results.

2.Mix oil, balsamic vinegar, honey and 1/4 tsp salt in a small bowl.

3.Heat a grill over medium-high, be sure grates are clean and well oiled to prevent sticking.

4.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.

5.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.
