Often times, a sauce is something creamy and rich or boiled and reduced until it's not much more than a sticky glaze. Sauces are complicated and complex; not for nothing do the French have five “mother sauces.” In this meal, we've got different adjectives from the sauce lexicon: simple, easy, and light. This mustard vinaigrette is springy and alive, the perfect accompaniment to the grilled chicken. Ditch the rich and cancel the creamy; the vinaigrette is here to stay.

    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim woody ends off asparagus. Trim zucchini ends and cut into ¼" slices on an angle. Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  • Step 2 - Make the Vinaigrette
    2

    Make the Vinaigrette

    Heat a grill or grill pan to medium heat. While grill heats, combine vinegar, mustard, and sugar in a mixing bowl. Slowly drizzle in 2 Tbsp. olive oil while whisking constantly. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • Step 3 - Grill the Chicken

    Grill the Chicken

    Drizzle 1 tsp. olive oil over chicken breasts. Place chicken on hot grill and cook until browned and chicken reaches the minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side. A trick for getting those pro-looking crosshatch marks on chicken and vegetables: Imagine your grill is a clock and place meat on grill so tip points at 10 o'clock. After 2-3 minutes, rotate so tip points at 2, and cook another 2-3 minutes. Repeat on second side. Remove chicken from grill and spoon 1 Tbsp. vinaigrette (reserve remaining for garnish) over each chicken breast. Tent with foil and rest at least 5 minutes.

  • Step 4 - Grill the Vegetables

    Grill the Vegetables

    Drizzle 1 tsp. olive oil over asparagus and zucchini. Season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Working in batches if necessary, place zucchini and asparagus on hot grill. Flip occasionally until lightly charred and tender, 2-4 minutes. Remove from grill.
