Basil Grilled Chicken

Recipe from: Tamara L
Servings: 4

¾ teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
4 chicken breast halves, skin removed
⅓ cup melted butter
¼ cup fresh chopped basil leaves
½ cup butter, room temperature
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
⅛ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon pepper

Press ¾ teaspoon coarse pepper into chicken breast halves. Combine ⅓ cup melted butter and ¼ cup chopped basil and blend well. Brush chicken lightly with basil and butter mixture. Combine ½ cup softened butter, 2 tablespoons chopped basil, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Beat until mixture is well blended and smooth. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside. Grill chicken over medium coals for 35 to 45 minutes, turning and basting frequently with remaining melted butter mixture. To test for doneness, pierce with a fork, the juices should run clear.

Serve grilled chicken with basil butter mixture. Garnish with fresh basil leaves, if desired.
