Everyone loved this chicken. I did substitute Italian seasoning for the fresh basil since that is what I had. Made for Fall PAC 2008

I made this last night and was a huge hit. I love how the mayo and basial combo keeps the chicken moist through the cooking process and the basil gave it an unexpected fresh taste to it. Thank you for submitting this recipe.
