DIRECTIONS

  • In a resealable bag, combine 1/3 cup of the oil, 3 Tbl. of the lemon juice, the fennel seeds, 3/4 teaspoons of the salt, and 1/2 teaspoons of the pepper. Add the chicken and seal the bag.
  • Massage the marinade into the chicken.
  • Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours, turning the chicken occasionally.
  • Meanwhile, in a blender, blend the basil, garlic, lemon zest, remaining 1/4 cup lemon juice, 3/4 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoons pepper until smooth. Gradually blend in remaining 1/3 cup of oil.
  • Season the basil sauce to taste with more salt and pepper, if desired.
  • Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for medium-high heat or preheat a ridged grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the chicken until just cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a platter. Drizzle with the basil sauce and serve.
