“Fresh basil is the most wonderful addition to this dish, in a pinch use dried but when fresh basil is in a bundance this is a great way to serve chicken. if you like you could actually grill or roast the chicken instead of cooking on the stove top. depending on the weather outside this recipe fits all seasons because of the fact you can use different methods for cooking the chicken. you could use boneless breasts if in a pinch for time!”
