Perfectly Grilled Summer Chicken Breasts: Recipe

I'll be honest with you - I'm not a big fan of chicken cutlets or chicken breasts.  They are a means to an end...I need to eat, and they have little fat and few calories - therefore, I must consume them. Usually I find I'm making fried chicken cutlets - now that makes more sense to me! But, alas, I am trying to be relatively healthy from time to time. The other day I made these - it was really easy and I actually just threw together some items that were sort of just "left-over."  I allowed the chicken to marinate overnight and that made all the difference.  The flavors married well and it tasted like the summer!

Grilled Summer Chicken with White Wine, Garlic and Basil

1 1/2 lbs. chicken breasts
4 medium-large garlic cloves
1/2 cup fresh basil
2/3 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon olive oil

In a food processor, combine the garlic, basil, oil and wine until the garlic is finely chopped. Place the breasts in a zipped plastic bag and pour the mixture into the bag.  Seal well and gently shake to coat the chicken in the marinade. Place in the refrigerator overnight.

Grill the breasts about 7-8 minutes per side over direct heat, turning often.  Serve!
