MethodLemon-Basil Vinaigrette: In small bowl, whisk together lemon zest, lemon juice, basil, mustard, salt and pepper; slowly whisk in oil. Set aside.
Salad: In saucepan of boiling salted water, cook edamame for 1 minute. Drain and let cool to room temperature.
Meanwhile, between plastic wrap, use meat mallet or heavy-bottomed saucepan to flatten chicken to 1/2-inch (1 cm) thickness.
Whisk together oil, thyme, tarragon, basil, salt and pepper; rub over chicken. Let stand for 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)
Place chicken on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until no longer pink inside, about 8 minutes. Slice chicken.
