Farmers Market Chicken

When it comes to eating summer is one of my favorite seasons. I am a fruit and vegetable person so summer signifies the Farmers Market Season. I sometimes tend to over buy and tonight was one of those nights I needed to use the veggies in my refrigerator. This is a great meal and could very  easily be adapted to the grill. If you do cook inside it is an almost one skillet meal.
