Ingredients (makes 8 chicken breast halves)

  • 8 Boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 cup Fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cloves Crushed garlic
  • 1/2 cup Olive oil
  • 1/4 cup White wine vinegar
  • Pinch Salt and pepper


  1. In a bowl combine the entire zest and juice of one large lemon.
  2. Add in the white wine vinegar and crushed garlic. Stack, roll and slice thin ribbons of basil and add that to the bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Whisk while drizzling in the olive oil. Reserve a quarter cup of the marinade before tossing the chicken breasts in and turning to coat. Pop it into the fridge to marinate for 30-60 minutes.
  4. Heat grill to medium-medium/high heat. Grill the chicken for 4-6 minutes before turning and basting (the grilled side) with the reserved marinade. Continue to cook for 4-6 more minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.
  5. Remove the chicken to a platter and let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.

  • Super healthy slab of meat is the chicken breast. Not easy to cook just right


  • It takes time to make something delicious and this looks it thanks for sharing


  • Love the char marks …looks so tender and totally delish.


  • This sounds yum and has me licking my lips. We love chicken in our home and I’m always looking for new options.


  • When you grill the chicken, does the inside get cooked well enough ?

    • As a vegetarian I’m not so good at marinading and preparing meat, fish and poultry.


  • a nice simple meal, nice and light if served with a salad. (actually, great Summer dish)


  • This looks very simple and light.


  • The herbs sound delicious, thanks for sharing.


  • Looks & sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing.


  • I’m sure this is very tasty but not something I can make. Sounds simple though


  • Sounds like something I could prepare for my husband as it’s not too much handling, except for the basting


  • This is something that sounds great. And something that I will definately cook.


  • What a simple and delicious way to cook chicken!


  • A new chicken recipe for me to try. And so obviously simple.
