Grilled Basil Chicken

3 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil or 2 tsp. dried basil
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
4 skinned, bone-in chicken breast halves or 8 skinned chicken thighs

*Process first 3 ingredients in container of an electric blender 30 seconds. With blender running, gradually add oil in a slow, steady stream, processing until blended. Reserve 1/4 cup basil mixture.

*Brush chicken with remaining basil mixture; cover and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes. Grill chicken, covered with grill id 30 minutes or until done, basting twice with reserved basil mixture.

NOTES:This is so easy and soooo tasty. The recipe is from my Ultimate Southern Living cookbook. Make sure if you're cooking with the bone in that you really let it cook for 30 minutes.
