    Hey Jude's Note:

    This is my adaptation of another good basil recipe from Sunset magazine. I serve this over jasmine rice.

      This was very good! I did add some onions, red and yellow bell peppers, and green beans. I doubled the broth mixture to accomodate my additions. And like PaulaG I added extra garlic!

      This is an excellent and quick chicken meal and great use for all the fresh basil in my garden. I do not do 1 clove of garlic (I am a garlic lover); therefore, the garlic was doubled. Very good!
