Grilled Garlic Butter Chicken (and salad)

A couple of weeks ago I was trying to figure out what to fix for dinner and came up with this. I am really into eating salads so topping a salad with this grilled chicken was just perfect. This chicken isn't overly flavorful, but it has just enough hint of flavor that goes perfect with a salad. We all gobbled it up.

Grilled Garlic Butter Chicken

4-6 chicken breasts
6 TBSP butter, melted
2 TBSP onion, finely minced
1 1/2 TBSP garlic, minced
1 TBSP lemon juice
kosher salt, to taste
freshly ground pepper, to taste

Preheat grill. While preheating, mix melted butter, onion, garlic and lemon juice in a small bowl. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Place chicken on grill, and baste with butter mixture. Cook slowly so that the chicken will not dry out or burn. After 5-6 minutes, flip to the other side and baste with butter sauce. Finally after chicken is cooked through, baste one more time, heat for another minute and remove from grill. This chicken flavor isn't strong, but it's just enough to give a hint of flavor. We added this to a salad with cheddar cheese, craisins, croutons, carrots, and cucumbers and made a grilled chicken salad and it was perfect.
