Grilled Basil Garlic Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Grilled Peaches


Grilled Basil Garlic Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Grilled Peaches

Finding boneless skin-on chicken breast seems to be a challenge (at least where we live) so we bought skin-on bone-in chicken breasts and removed the bone. With a sharp small knife such as a boning knife, run the blade along the rib cage to separate the breast from the bone. You can freeze the bones for the next time you make homemade chicken stock.

Ingredients:
  • 4 large boneless skin-on chicken breast halves (10-12 ounces each)
  • 3 tablespoons finely minced garlic
  • ½ cup chopped fresh basil
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Instructions:
  1. In a small bowl, mix garlic, basil and oil. Add additional oil if necessary.
  2. Smear the mixture on both sides of the chicken breasts being careful to leave the skins intact. Sprinkle both sides with a small amount of salt and pepper. (The chicken may be allowed to marinate for up to 6 hours if desired.)
  3. Over a medium fire, place chicken skin side down to crisp skin, about 8-10 minutes. Watch the temperature to make sure they do not burn. We leave the tenderloin on our chicken breasts so they are fairly thick – if you are doing the same, close the cover for a few minutes to raise the heat. Flip the breasts over and cook for another 6-8 minutes, again with the cover closed part of the time to have the grill function as an oven. (If your chicken breasts are not thick, the cover should be left open.
  4. Note: If you are not comfortable telling when meat is done, pull one off and slice into a thick part to make sure there is no pink. They will sit after they come off the grill and will cook a bit on your platter so do not leave on too long.
