Honey Basil Grilled Chicken

This is a yummy flavor filled chicken dish. It's perfect for those hot summer says when you don't want to heat up the kitchen. It can also be prepared in the broiler. I did not include marinating time in the total prep time. I like to serve it with a rice dish and a spinach salad. A cool key-lime pie would make it a perfect meal!

ingredients

directions

  • Combine the first 6 ingredients.
  • Cut the peppers into 1-2" pieces.
  • Add the chicken breasts& peppers to the honey mixture.
  • I put all the ingredients in a heavy-duty zip lock bag.
  • Seal the bag and shake it until the chicken& peppers are coated with the honey mixture.
  • Put it in the refrigerator and let it marinate for 3 hours.
  • Turn the bag several times to make sure the chicken and the vegetables are well coated with the marinade.
  • Take the chicken and peppers out of the marinade.
  • Put the marinade in a saucepan and bring it to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce reduces a small amount.
  • This usually takes about 5 minutes.
  • Spray the grill rack with cooking spray.
  • Heat the grill to medium heat.
  • Put the chicken on the rack and close the grill lid.
  • Cook for 8-10 minutes.
  • Turn the chicken and continue cooking for 8-10 minutes.
  • Baste with the marinade during the last few minutes of cooking.
  • The peppers can be grilled in a grilling basket or on skewers.
  • The peppers will need to grill for about 5 minutes on each side.
  • The chicken and peppers can be cooked in your oven broiler.
  • Place them in a single layer on the broiler pan which has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Broil 5-6 inches from the heat for 10 minutes.
  • Turn the chicken and peppers and baste with the marinade.
  • Cook for an additional 8-10 minutes or until chicken is done.

    This was really good! The flavors were great together. I served it with sweet chili sauce for dipping. Will definately be making again.

    I thought this was really good. I didn't have enough lemons to make the entire cup. I ended up with only about a 1/4 cup. I cut back on the honey a bit but kept everything else at the same amounts. I also added sea salt and fresh pepper right before grilling. I really enjoyed the sweet taste the marinade gave to the jasmine rice I served with this. Thanks so much.
