1/2 cup Puritan oil

1/4 cup lemon juice*

2 tablespoon white wine vinegar

1 teaspoon grated lemon peel*

2 cloves garlic

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1/2 cup chopped fresh basil or 1 tablespoon dried basil

2 whole chicken breasts, skinned, boned, halved (about 1 1/2 pound)


In small bowl, combine oil, lemon juice, vinegar, grated lemon peel, garlic, salt, pepper and basil (makes about 1 cup marinade). Put chicken in shallow baking dish and cover with marinade. Marinate chicken, turning once, for 30 to 45 min or overnight. Refrigerate until ready to use.



Meanwhile, prepare charcoal for grilling or heat broiler. Grill or broil chicken 4 inches from heat, turning once, until lightly browned on the outside and just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to serving dish and garnish with lemon wedges and fresh basil leaves.


*TIP: orange juice and grated orange peel can be substituted for the lemon.

Also, apple wood on the coals will produce a sweet smoke flavor
