Carabba's restaurant chicken copycat recipe I want to try.


  1. Place the basil, garlic, mint, salt, pepper, and oregano in a mortar and pulverize until mixture turns into a paste.
  2. Place the paste in a glass jar and add the olive oil, lemon juice, and vinegar.
  3. Refrigerate.
  4. Before using, bring to room temperature and shake well. The sauce will hold in the refrigerator for two weeks.
  5. Lightly coat the chicken breasts with herb garlic sauce on both sides, season with sal and pepper to taste and place on hot grill.
  6. Cook until done, coat whit herb garlic sauce mixture.
  7. Serve.

This is a very flavorful way to prepare chicken when you don't have time to marinade it! I used 2 t of jarred fresh basil in place of the basil leaves, and will definitely be making this again!

Kind of funny that I ran across this recipe as this is one of the two things that I order every time when dining at Carrabba's although they now call it their grilled chicken breast. The other entree that I really like is their marinated veal chop which they only have occasionally. Anyway, I followed the recipe to the letter and this is identical to the original! My grill is gas so I used Mesquite chips in a little smoker box to come as close to replicating Carrabba's wood grill. Thanks Jellyko, this was awesome and will definitely be making this again, and again, and........:-)
