The Best Grilled Basil Garlic Chicken Breasts Recipe

2020-05-16 09:59:45

Finding boneless skin-on chicken breast seems to be a challenge (at least where we live) so we bought skin-on bone-in chicken breasts and removed the bone. With a sharp small knife such as a boning knife run the blade along the rib cage to separate the breast from the bone. You can freeze the bones for the next time you make homemade chicken stock.INGREDIENTS

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

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a small bowl mix garlic basil and oil. Add additional oil if necessary.
  2. 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.)
