      These ingredients create a delicious dinner IF you have good cooking instincts. This recipe is swiss cheese! (full of holes!) Still, I was looking for a baked chicken preparation for a luncheon crowd of 60 women, and this was perfect. Not too expensive. Not too time consumptive in preparation. Beautiful presentation.<br/>But don't attempt if you follow a recipe exactly. Read it now. Where's the basil in the cream sauce?

      This is luxurious. It's rich, creamy and light as at the same time. I couldn't find fresh basil, but I did find the "tube" basil and it worked wonderfully. I served it with wild rice and steamed broccoli. Simply wonderful and easy.
