Units Scale

Grilled Chicken

  • 4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 23 Tbsp. garden-fresh basil, chopped
  • Sprinkle of my favorite go-to ‘trinity’ seasonings: Mrs. Dash (for chicken), Nature’s Seasons, and Accent

Basil-Butter Sauce

  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 Tbsp. garden-fresh basil, chopped
  • 23 Tbsp. Parmigiano-Regiano, finely grated
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper


  1. Sprinkle the chicken with your favorite chicken seasonings (mine is listed above: my go-to ‘trinity’ for everything I grill).
  2. Melt the butter.
  3. Blend in basil.
  4. Brush the chicken breasts with basil-butter mixture.
  5. Grill chicken breasts about 8 minutes on each side depending on how large they are (we select large sized chicken breasts) and how well-done you like your chicken (we like our moist and not dry).
  6. Continually baste chicken with any remaining mixture while grilling to keep them ultra-moist and super flavorful.
  7. Prepare Basil-Butter Sauce by combining all ingredients.
  8. Serve grilled chicken breasts with the basil-butter sauce at the table for guests to top on their own.
  9. Serve with fresh, thickly-cut Italian bread to dip into the basil-butter sauce and/or mop up what is on the plate.
