Grilled Basil Garlic Chicken Breasts

Ingredients for 4 servings

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
½ cup chopped fresh basil
3 tablespoons finely minced garlic
4 large boneless skin-on chicken breast halves (10-12 ounces each)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

In a small bowl, mix garlic, basil and oil. Add additional oil if necessary.

Smear the mixture on both sides of the chicken breasts being careful to leave the skins intact. Sprinkle both sides with a small amount of salt and pepper. (The chicken may be allowed to marinate for up to 6 hours if desired.)

Over a medium fire, place chicken skin side down to crisp skin, about 8-10 minutes. Watch the temperature to make sure they do not burn. We leave the tenderloin on our chicken breasts so they are fairly thick – if you are doing the same, close the cover for a few minutes to raise the heat. Flip the breasts over and cook for another 6-8 minutes, again with the cover closed part of the time to have the grill function as an oven. (If your chicken breasts are not thick, the cover should be left open.

Note: If you are not comfortable telling when meat is done, pull one off and slice into a thick part to make sure there is no pink. They will sit after they come off the grill and will cook a bit on your platter so do not leave on too long.

Remove the chicken from the heat and allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving. Serve either whole or sliced for your family or guests with our Grilled Balsamic Peaches.
