What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh lemon basil or basil
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

  • 4 (1/2-inch-thick) skinned and boned chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  3. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and cook 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Notes

Lemon basil looks like regular basil, but you'll recognize it by its distinct citrus aroma and flavor. Substitute here with regular basil, if desired.

Husky Roasted Corn

Native Americans cooked their corn right in the husks over an open fire, and we think their idea is still best, 'cause it helps bring out flavors you can only get from roasting. We love making our Husky Roasted Corn right on the grill in the summer, and in our ovens when it's cooler out!
