Marinated Chicken Breasts

The basil is overflowing in the garden and chicken is plentiful right now. I decided to make chicken sandwiches tonight with a side of broiled peppers filled with cheese, as those are plentiful as well!
I topped the sandwiches with lettuce, cheese and pickles canned earlier this summer. Chick-fil-e has nothing on this sandwich!
You will need:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Wash and dry chicken and place in a ziplock back
Mix marinade and pour over chicken. Let marinate several hours in the fridge turning bag every so often.

3/4 c. olive oil
juice of one lemon
2 garlic cloves, smashed
8 large basil leaves, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Remove chicken from bag and grill about 11 minutes or until done.

This would be a great chicken to serve over a salad as well. Enjoy!
