Grilled Chicken Tarragon


Ingredients           Amount

•    Olive oil
•    Cloves of minced garlic
•    Chopped fresh Tarragon
•    Ground sea salt

Cover and refrigerate chicken for 2 hours, turning occasionally.

To Grill:
Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Remove chicken from baking dish.  To prevent sticking, add some olive oil to some cheesecloth and season your grill with the cheesecloth. Place breasts on grill at an angle and turn each breast 4 times diagonally for proper doneness.  About 8 minutes.
