Recipe idea, great...I'll have to change though. 1st, grill boneless, skinless chick breasts, just till grill marks show. Remove. Use butter, garlic, & rosemary as stated. I'd substitute whole button mushrooms for zucchini (don't like). Then, make individual heavy duty foil packages, placing a piece of chicken & veggies in each & place on grill over indirect heat & slowly cook till correct temp is reached. Who doesn't love their own individual package of buttery, savory chicken & veggies.? I just might have to toss some sliced red peppers in for color. Oh, can't wait to try this. Thanks for the idea.!

The flavor of the chicken was great- had great aroma too -according to my neighbors too- I did not care for the eggplant.
