Grilled Chicken and Garden Herb Sauce

posted in: Recipes 0

This is a recipe inspired by my garden. This year my basil and parsley is growing like crazy, which is a great problem to have I think. I wanted to use some of the herbs to make a sauce for the grilled chicken that I was planning for dinner. I saw the capers, an ingredient that my oldest loves, and this is what I came up with. If you’re in the mood for pork or steak, the sauce will work well with either of those.

  • 3 Chicken breasts
  • 2 Tablespoons Parsley
  • 3 Tablespoons Basil
  • 2 Tablespoons Walnuts
  • 1 Tablespoon Balsamic vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 1 Tablespoon Chicken broth
  • 3 Oz. Capers
  • 1 Small jalapeno
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Salt


For the Chicken

  • Heat grill to medium high.
  • Coated with olive oil and season with 1 teaspoon of salt.
  • Put chicken on the grill and cook 10 minutes on each side, until the juices run clear. If you don't like a lot of char on the chicken, cook 7 each side then remove to indirect heat (the side where the burners are off and cook until done.

For the Sauce

  • Add all ingredients, except for the capers, to your blender and blend for a couple minutes.
  • Add in the drained capers and give a few pulses. I don’t want to puree the capers, just buzz it enough to incorporate the flavor.
  • Top the chicken with the sauce and you’re all set for a fresh herby dinner! Serve with egg oodles and cauliflower.
