  • 1
    In large resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix chicken breasts and buttermilk. Seal, removing as much air as possible. Place bag in large bowl; refrigerate at least 2 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
  • 2
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Remove chicken from bag, and pat dry with paper towels; discard buttermilk. Brush chicken with melted butter; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 3
    Place chicken on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 15 to 20 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F).
  • 4
    Drizzle chicken with honey; top with parsley and basil. Serve with lemon wedges.

Expert Tips

  • While the subtle buttermilk and honey flavors of this chicken are lovely, if you need a little spice, serve with harissa or spicy salsa.
  • Experiment with different types of honey and herbs, such as marjoram and lemon verbena.
