Ingredients

2 tbsp snipped fresh basil

2 tbsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

½ tsp finely shredded lemon peel

2 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions

1. In a small bowl, combine basil, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and garlic. Set aside

2. Place each chicken breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, pound lightly to about 1/8 inch thickness. Remove plastic wrap. Spread mixture over chicken. Fold in sides of each chicken breast; roll up, pressing edges to seal. Fasten with wood toothpicks.

3. For sauce, in a small bowl combine lemon peel, lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon olive oil; set aside.

4. You can either bake on 375 until chicken is cooked through or grill the chicken for about 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink. Once chicken is cooked, either by baking or by grilling, spread the sauce over the chicken and put it back in the oven or back on the grill for another 5-10 minutes.
