One of my favorite things to grill is batches of these Roasted Garlic and Herb Chicken Breasts. You can use this method on any cut of chicken you like, it's just that good! The chicken is basted in a mixture of roasted garlic and herbs, then grilled to perfection. They’re great right off the grill and they are portable, which comes in handy with two teenagers and their friends around. They often grab something to eat when they’re headed out the door. Unlike batter coated chicken, which we enjoy around here, can often mask the true chicken flavor, this grilled chicken simply allows the chicken flavor plus the outdoor cooking flavor to make your taste buds pop.
I almost forgot! They’re totally delicious. Come on…let's fire up the grill.
Squeeze one head of roasted garlic into the blender.
Pour 1/4 cup of white wine into the blender.
Add 2 tablespoons of fresh parsley leaves, 2 tablespoons of fresh basil leaves, 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes.
Pulse blender to combine and then stream in 3/4 of a cup of extra virgin olive oil.
Pour off your basting sauce into a container. Season chicken with salt and pepper and place on the grill. Sear each side of the chicken for about five minutes and then move to indirect heat.
Cook the chicken about 10 minutes per side and then baste with Roasted Garlic Herb Sauce.
Allow to cook another 10 minutes, turn chicken and baste again. Continue grilling and basting chicken until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
Stick in a fork in me, 'cause I'm done!
