Lemon Honey Chicken

From the cookbook 70 Meals, One Trip to the Store comes a simple chicken marinade.

1/2 cup butter
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup honey
4 chicken breasts
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Combine melted butter, lemon juice, and honey. Using half the lemon/honey mixture, marinate chicken for at least one half hour. Grill or bake chicken, basting frequently with remaining lemon/ honey mixture. If baking, line baking dish with foil and bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees F.

I cooked mine on a charcoal grill. I should say Chuck came home early and did the grilling; I just created the sauce and started the coals. We served this over rice, with fresh vegetables on the side. It used up the last of my local honey, so I bought a new bottle at the Farmers' Market on Saturday. I predict this dish will become a regular on our table. I wonder which dish will emerge from this cookbook next?
