Grilled Chicken Ratatouille

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
4 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise
1 chopped fresh marjoram
1 medium red onion, cut into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
1 teaspoon salt
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (about 1 1/4 pounds), trimmed and tenders removed (see Note)
Canola or olive oil cooking spray
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 red bell pepper, halved lengthwise, stemmed and seeded
1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
1 small eggplant, cut into 1/2-inch-thick rounds

1.Preheat grill to medium-high.
2.Combine oil, basil, marjoram and salt in a small bowl and reserve 1 tablespoon of the mixture in another small bowl; set aside.
3.Coat both sides of bell pepper, eggplant, zucchini, tomato and onion pieces with cooking spray. Grill the vegetables, turning once, until soft and charred in spots, about 5 minutes per side for the pepper, 4 minutes per side for the eggplant and zucchini and 3 minutes per side for the tomatoes and onion. As the vegetables finish cooking, place them in a large bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap.
4.Rub the tablespoon of reserved herb mixture on both sides of chicken and sprinkle with pepper. Grill the chicken until cooked through and no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
5.Meanwhile, transfer the grilled vegetables to a cutting board and chop into 1-inch pieces. Return to the bowl and toss with vinegar and the remaining herb mixture. Serve the grilled chicken with the ratatouille.

Note: It’s difficult to find an individual chicken breast small enough for one portion. Removing the thin strip of meat from the underside of a 5-ounce breast—the “tender”—removes about 1 ounce of meat and yields a perfect 4-ounce portion. Wrap and freeze the tenders and when you have gathered enough, use them in a stir-fry or for oven-baked chicken fingers
