Lemon Basil Grilled ChickenPosted: May 20, 2009
A great, light summer grilled meal. The marinade came together easily and was a perfect use of my freshly grown basil. I put it atop angel hair pasta and added some steamed broccoli to make the meal healthy and delicious!
I found this great marinade on BBQ recipes site. They have tons of ideas and simple uses of herbs for grilling up great meats.
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 freshly chopped basil
2-4 chicken breasts depending on size
3 tbsp grated parm cheese
2 tbsp veg oil
salt and pepper to taste
2 cloves garlic chopped
1.5 cups steamed broccoli
2 servings angel hair pasta
Mix all ingredients together and let marinate for 30 mins to 1 hour. Heat grill to medium heat. Grill chicken until tender and completely cooked through. Serve atop angel hair pasta and mix in steamed broccoli.
