You can still keep your real food commitment in place when you're firing up the grill. Here is one of my favorites. The Best Grilled Chicken!

I love grill recipes that are simple and quick with very little clean up. This dinner--Chicken Skewers with Dipping Sauce (click here for the recipe), grilled golden zucchini, and brown rice-- is one of my favorites. I start with the organic Smart Chicken boneless skinless breasts--they always seems to stay so nice and moist, even when grilled. The marinade is great because it's uses ingredients I always have on hand- garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, cayenne, basil, cumin, olive oil. (And if you buy these spices in bulk--such a bargain!) It only takes as little as 30 minutes of marinating for the chicken to absorb these great flavors. Only 8 - 10 minutes on the grill!
You might be tempted to skip making the dipping sauce, but trust me--don't! Soy sauce (I use Tamari), fresh lemon juice, rice vinegar, minced green onion and a little crushed red pepper! My family even loves to spoon some of this on the rice!
The golden zucchini in the picture is local--from Anderson Organics. So fresh and such beautiful golden color! i just slice them up, coarsely chop some onion, add some salt and pepper. Drop a few tablespoons of Earth Balance on top, then fold them into foil packets. I throw these on the grill a little ahead of the chicken skewers.
