Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Alouette Le Bon Dip in Basil, Zucchini and Parmesan
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 lemon, for fresh juice
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1/2 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 skinless and boneless chicken breast, halves
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste

Directions

Combine 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, olive oil, 1 minced garlic clove, and 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves in a large plastic bag, and let marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes, turning occasionally.

Remove chicken from bag, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and grill on medium-high heat 6 minutes on each side or until done.

While chicken is grilling, slice cucumber. In a medium-sized bowl, combine cucumber, remaining lemon juice, and garlic with Alouette Le Bon Dip in Basil, Zucchini & Parmesan and mix well.

Plate grilled chicken, top with Creamy Basil & Zucchini sauce, and serve.

Grilled Chicken Shopping Tip

When buying chicken, make sure to ask for it to be placed in a separate plastic bag, to minimize the risk of cross-contamination.

Grilled Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.
