Grilled Basil-And-Garlic-Stuffed Chicken

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Tee Lee

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.
