Basil Chicken and Pasta

basil chicken

this recipe turned out very delicious! it was very comparable to the champagne chicken i make. a little different flavor and easy to make. if you don't have mushrooms and champagne to accomplish the champagne chicken try this recipe.
I had a recipe for basil chicken, but as always i use recipes as guidelines for my own creation - so here is what i did:
i cut up about 3/4 cup od fresh basil, juiced one lemon, and made a mixure of salt, fresh ground pepper, poultry seasoning, garlic pepper, and lemon pepper.
i salt and peppered the chicken and browned it on both sides. then added all the ingredients above - along with 1/4 cup chicken broth, 1 tablespoon butter, and a splash of soy sauce. then i covered and simmered until chicken was cooked through.
i served with linguni and marinara sauce (which i added some red wine into to give it more body) topped with a little cheese and voila! a delicious meal!
