Grilled Tarragon Butter Chicken



    1. Combine the marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
    2. Place chicken breasts in a glass or ceramic container. Pour marinade over chicken and allow to marinate for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator. Chicken can actually marinate in the refrigerator overnight. Bring to room temperature before grilling.
    3. To prepare sauce, combine wine, shallots, tarragon vinegar, peppercorns, and lemon juice in a heavy non-aluminum saucepan and boil until about 1 tbsp. is left and liquid is syrup-like. Add heavy cream and reduce for another moment. Over low heat, whisk in butter piece by piece until it is all incorporated. Add tarragon and minced garlic.
    4. When grill is ready, grill chicken breasts for about 4 minutes per side, turning only once. Fill basting bowl with additional marinade and baste frequently. Transfer to warm plates and add sauce.
