What to do with all that mint in the garden…

This is what is for dinner tonight…created a much simpler version here but this is the original version http://chickenmarinades.net/

Zesty Mint Marinade

3 6oz Chicken breasts
Pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper
2 handfuls of fresh mint
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
5 cloves of garlic
Olive oil to taste

Put all of the remaining ingredients except for the olive oil into a food processor and blend. Once the ingredients have been processed into a paste, add the olive oil to achieve your desired consistency. Put chicken and marinade plastic bag or in a bowl, mix well and cover if using a bowl, leave for a few hours. We did it on the grill but I am sure you can bake or saute!

Suggestions for the future: Double the Marinade Recipe and use the extra portion (lightly sauteed before using) for a tangy dressing to top the chicken!
