Chicken Breast with Lemon and Honey 

Total time: 30 minutes
    Chicken breasts are a favorite on the grill but be careful not to overcook or they tend to dry out.  We prefer to slice them thinly, at an angle, to serve, rather than leaving the breast whole, but that, of course is optional!

   Another summer staple: grilled vegetables!  If you have a proper mesh grill pan, perfect.  If not use any old metal pan (cake pan, pie pan, foil pan, whatever) that is designated for permanent grill use  - the bottom will be blackened...
