Why I Love This Recipe

It's summertime and summertime is the season for grilling. A couple of days ago I prepared this recipe, which is very easy but very tasty.

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 teaspoon pepper, coarsely ground
4 chicken breast halves
1/3 cup butter (or margarine), melted
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Fresh basil sprigs for garnish (optional)


Press 3/4 teaspoon pepper into meaty sides of chicken breast halves.

Combine softened butter, basil, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Grill chicken over medium coals, 8 - 10 minutes on each side or until done, basting frequently with basil-butter mixture.

Garnish with basil and serve.
