Fast, delicious and low can't beat that. The chicken was tender and juicy and the basil wine sauce was the perfect for the chicken. Great for making on a weeknight. Made for March 2012 Aus/NZ Swap.

This ticked all our boxes thanks Jubes-fast, easy, tasty and relatively low fat so pretty healthy. I made no changes to your recipe apart from using EVOO instead of unsalted butter which I rarely buy.

The chicken was very tender and the sauce was tasty. It was simple and fast too. What more can you ask for in a recipe than that? Made for ZWT 8.
