I found part of the problem. One of the small screws that holds the plastic cover to the chainrings was caught between the large and middle chainring. I tried to put the screw back, but the plastic threads where it connects to are stripped, and the plastic is cracked.
I took the bike out for a ride (with the screw removed), and the same thing happens as before, the clicking sound while riding in the middle chainring. The problem with the clicking sound happens with all 7 cogs and the middle ring.
