Lemon Basil Chicken

This is the perfect summer grilling chicken. My husband is an amazing griller so we grill often. I choose not to even learn how to grill since he does such a nice job - plus I just don't want to! :)

I LOVE this Lemon Basil Chicken. When we first moved to Omaha, our fabulous neighbors would invite us down to their house to cookout. Miss Pat and Mr. Phil as my girls call them were just the best neighbors. We were so sad when they moved back to Philadelphia. Miss Pat is a great cook and this is one of the many recipes I acquired while we were neighbors. I know this recipe will become a staple in your summer menu! Enjoy with corn on the cob, steamed broccoli and watermelon!

Lemon Basil Chicken

1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp grated lemon peel
1 Tbsp dried basil
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
4-6 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless

Place all ingredients in a ziploc bag and marinate for 30 minutes or longer. Grill!

This looks really refreshing and even more delicious. Basil is one of my favorite herbs. :)

I am always looking for recipes to use the basil in my garden! This looks delicious.

So many awesome flavors. My fresh basil is not quite ready so I'm glad this uses dried. I will be on the menu this week! Have a great weekend.
