Grilled Chicken with Spicy Thai Marinade

This was delicious; I made extra and added the leftovers to Asian Peanut Noodles the next day. LOVE the return of grilling season!

1/4 cup basil leaves (I used 4 cubes of the frozen basil from Trader Joe’s)
1/4 cup cilantro leaves
8 garlic cloves
2 T sambal oelek (or other Asian chile sauce)
2 T Asian fish sauce
1 t lemon zest
1/2 cup veg oil

Puree everything in a mini food processor and marinate chicken breasts overnight. Grill over medium-high heat for 6 minutes (6 min. 30 seconds if they are thicker).
