Step 1In a shallow dish, stir together 1 tsp (5 mL) of the oil and half of the ginger. Add chicken with garlic and pepper and turn to coat.
Step 2Place chicken on greased grill over medium heat and grill, turning once for about 12 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside. Remove to cutting board and slice thinly; set aside.
Step 3In a non-stick skillet, heat remaining sesame oil over medium heat. Cook zucchini and carrots with remaining ginger; stirring for about 5 minutes or until tender crisp. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar. Toss with mint and basil.
Step 4Divide among 2 plates and top with sliced chicken.
Asparagus variation: Omit zucchini and substitute 2 cups (500 mL) julienned asparagus.
