Ingredients
  • 2 - 3   tablespoons 
    lemon juice
  • 1   tablespoon 
    white vinegar
  • 2   tablespoons 
    chopped fresh dill
  • 2   tablespoons 
    chopped fresh basil
  • 1   tablespoon 
    honey
  • 1   tablespoon 
    Dijon mustard
  • 1   teaspoon 
    salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
    black pepper
  • 1/4  cup 
    extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6   medium 
    boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 2-1/2 pounds total), pounded slightly
  • 1   
    lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1/3  cup 
    pitted kalamata olives, halved
Directions
1.
In a medium-size bowl, whisk lemon juice, vinegar, dill, basil, honey, mustard, 3/4 teaspoon of the salt and the pepper until well blended. In a slow stream, whisk in oil until blended.
2.
Place chicken in a large resealable bag. Add 1/3 cup of the dressing and half of the lemon slices. Seal bag; refrigerate 2 hours to marinate, turning at least once. Reserve remaining dressing, stirring in remaining lemon slices and olives.
3.
Heat gas grill to medium-high or prepare charcoal grill with medium-hot coals. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Grill chicken 5 to 6 minutes per side, turning once, until chicken registers 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Remove to a portable container.
4.
Pour reserved dressing over chicken; season with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. If grilled ahead, let come to room temperature before serving (about an hour).
