The original recipe is Thai Basil Chicken w/Broccoli from Sparkrecipes, but this is my modified version. Also good with asparagus or cauliflower instead of or in addition to broccoli.

Very easy and very good. I did change a little bit. I added a bit of agave nectar to give the dish a sweetish taste. This might not have been necessary but I didn't have the full 1 cup of fresh basil. I also added a touch of cayenne pepper for a bit of spice!

It is an exceptionally easy & inexpensive way to have a good-size chicken breast serve two ~ The breasts I get are usually 7 or 8 ounces each! I did make 1 small addition to this recipe, in that I seasoned it with a bit of lemon pepper! Served over brown rice, & we had a wonderfully satisfying meal!
