4 whole chicken breasts -- boned and halved
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon basil leaves -- dried
4 tablespoons peanut oil
3 whole cloves
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1 dash pepper
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Preparation / Directions:

Prepare the marinade by combining the peanut oil, soy sauce, lemon juice and brown sugar. Place the chicken breasts in a single layer in a glass dish. Sprinkle with garlic, pepper, basil leaves and cloves. Pour the marinade over the chicken breasts. Let stand refrigerated for at least 4 hours (the longer the better), turning the breasts over from time to time. Preheat the grill - it is ready when ALL the coals have a THICK and EVEN coating of gray ash. Place the chicken breasts on the grill a few at a time. Baste with marinade. Grill five minutes on the first side. Turn over and grill the other side until the chicken is fork tender and juices run clear when pierced with a fork (the chicken should be lightly browned) (5-9 minutes). DON'T OVERCOOK! Serve with chutney, cooked rice and a green salad
