Honey Citrus Grilled Chicken with Basil Butter

Cookies and Cups has some good recipes and this is one of them! I marinated the chicken less than the 3 hours it instructs, but the citrus still came through well. The chicken was tender and flavorful and moist. Sometimes I don't feel like going outside to grill, but this recipe is easy and the taste definitely makes it worth it. Gonna make it again soon.

Honey Citrus Grilled Chicken with Basil Butter

Juice of 2 lemons
Juice of 2 limes
2 T. honey
1 t. kosher salt
½ t. black pepper
2 cloves minced garlic
2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Basil Butter
½ c. butter, room temperature
½ t. garlic powder
¼ c. minced fresh basil leaves
¼ t. crushed red pepper, optional

Whisk all marinade ingredients together. Place chicken in a plastic zip bag and pour marinade on top. Marinate for at least 3 hours.

Basil Butter

Combine all the butter ingredients in a small bowl and combine evenly. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Remove chicken from the refrigerator. Preheat your grill to medium high heat. Grill chicken for 6-7 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of your chicken. Remove from grill and serve with a pat of basil butter on each chicken breast.
