Grilled Lemon Chicken Breasts 

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!

   In the winter I love to make white beans with sage; this is a summer version, adding green beans and fresh tomatoes.  Fresh sage is at its best right now, giving a 'fall' flavor to the dish.  This is enough for 2 meals.
