This has to be my favorite chicken breast recipe.  When I met my hubs he introduced me to grilled Monterey chicken at one of his favorite hole in the wall restaurants.  Lucky for him I am pretty descent in the kitchen especially when it comes to winging it.  If you like to grill outside on a pit this is a fun one.  I even opt to making this easy grilled Pollo Monterey chicken recipe with my cast iron skillet.  Both are just as simple.
