Grilled Honey Citrus Chicken with Basil Butter

This chicken was great! Do not skip out on the butter, it brings to much flavor to this dish. Even my "sauce" hater loved the extra the butter brought to the chicken. This recipe is from Cookies and Cups.

2lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
juice of 2 limes
juice of 2 lemons
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cloves minced garlic

1/2 cup salted butter (softened)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves (chopped)

In a small bowl whisk together all the marinade ingredients. Pour over chicken and let marinate for 3-8 hours. In a small bowl combine the butter, garlic powder and basil leaves. Refrigerate until ready to use. Grill chicken over medium high heat until it is cooked through. Remove from grill and top with basil butter.
