Introduction

Elevate your grilling game with this delicious Grilled Chicken and Vegetable Casserole recipe, perfect for your Arteflame Grill. This dish combines the best of grilling and casserole cooking, resulting in a flavorful and satisfying meal. Using the high heat of the center grill grate and the even cooking of the flat cooktop, you’ll achieve a perfect sear and optimal doneness for all ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 large zucchini, sliced
  • 1 large yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Ingredients:

    • Slice the bell peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, and red onion. Mince the garlic. Pat the chicken breasts dry with paper towels.
  2. Season the Chicken and Vegetables:

    • In a large bowl, toss the sliced vegetables with olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, and dried oregano. Brush the chicken breasts with melted butter and season with sea salt and black pepper.
  3. Fire Up the Grill:

    • Preheat your Arteflame grill to high heat (over 1,000°F) to get it ready for grilling.
  4. Grill the Chicken and Vegetables:

    • Place the chicken breasts on the center grill grate and sear each side for about 3-4 minutes to develop a nice crust.
    • Move the chicken to the flat top griddle and continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 160°F, flipping occasionally.
    • While the chicken is cooking, place the seasoned vegetables on the flat top griddle and grill until tender and slightly charred, about 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally.
  5. Assemble the Casserole:

    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (if using an oven-safe grill accessory, skip this step).
    • In a large oven-safe dish or the optional Arteflame pizza oven, layer the grilled vegetables and chicken. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese.
    • Place the dish in the oven or pizza oven and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 15-20 minutes.
  6. Finish and Serve:

    • Remove the casserole from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley. Serve hot.

Tips

  • Butter vs. Olive Oil: Butter adds a rich flavor to the chicken, while olive oil helps the vegetables grill evenly.
  • High Heat for Searing: Achieve a perfect sear on the chicken by utilizing the high heat of the Arteflame Grill.
  • Even Cooking: Move the chicken and vegetables around the flat top griddle to find the optimal heat zone for even cooking.
