    Tee Lee's Note:

    These delicious chicken breasts are stuffed with basil, garlic and parmesan cheese. Then they're grilled to perfection while basting with a lemon butter sauce. One of my favorite grilled chicken recipes. From Better Homes and Gardens.

      Next time we make this, we will saute the garlic before adding it to the stuffing.

      I had 2 large chicken breasts in the freezer, so I defrosted and then pounded them thin. I used the full amount of stuffing for the 2 breasts since they were so large and the amount was just perfect. Very easy to roll up and secure with toothpicks too... Unfortunately, it rained just as I was planning on grilling these, so I put them in the oven at 375F for about 15-20 min instead and basted them a few times with the butter sauce. They did not brown, so I dusted the tops with a little parmesan cheese and broiled them for just a few minutes. Very flavorful and moist. I can only think they would be even tastier grilled... I will try them again soon!!!

      Very excellent and easy. I used pre-flattened chicken, but I think if I didn't have that I'd just cut an envelope into a breast. Cheeting, but effective.
