Basil Grilled Chicken

3/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
4 chicken breast halves, skin removed
1/3 cup melted butter
1/4 cup fresh chopped basil leaves
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Press 3/4 teaspoon coarse pepper into chicken breast halves. Combine 1/3 cup melted butter and 1/4 cup chopped basil; blend well. Brush chicken lightly with basil and butter mixture.

Combine 1/2 cup softened butter, 2 tablespoons chopped basil, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Beat until mixture is well blended and smooth. Transfer to a small bowl; set aside.

Grill chicken over medium coals for 35 to 45 minutes, turning and basting frequently with remaining melted butter mixture. To test for doneness, pierce with a fork; juices should run clear. Serve grilled chicken with basil butter mixture.

Garnish with fresh basil leaves, if desired.
