Method: 
In a large bowl, whisk together 3 tablespoons of the oil, 1 teaspoon granulated garlic, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Add mushrooms, squash and zucchini, toss well and set aside to let marinate for 1 hour.

In a wide, shallow dish, whisk together remaining 2 tablespoons oil, 1 teaspoon granulated garlic, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Add chicken and turn to coat. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Preheat grill. Grill vegetables, turning once, until tender and golden brown, about 10 minutes total. Transfer to a serving platter and keep warm. Grill chicken, turning once, until just cooked through and deep golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. 

Toss spinach and dressing together in a large bowl, then transfer to plates. Arrange rice on plates and top with grilled vegetables and chicken. Serve immediately.
