Basil Marinade

Basil grew huge this year! We have so much that I had to come up with new ideas for recipes. This one was very good with chicken. Serve with a salad, grilled vegetables or rice and dinner is served!

Basil Marinade

1 bunch fresh basil
4 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 cup olive oil
3/4 cup white wine
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste

Place  the basil and garlic in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until chopped fine. Gradually add the liquid ingredients and pulse until it reaches the consistency of a light marinade.

Pour over the chicken thighs and marinate for at least one hour before grilling.
