I initially sought out this recipe to use up a jar of alfredo that I got from the damaged rack for $.90. I thought it would be a "throwaway" recipe since I usually don't buy anything like that. Wrong! Everyone loved this and absolutely devoured it (except my son, who is overly picky and doesn't count). I brined the chicken first. Although I would like to have used wine, I used chicken broth because I had no white wine in the house. And I did not finish with the fresh basil. Since I didn't serve pasta with it, I poured the sauce over our broccoli also, which worked out well. I will definitely make this again (although I will probably seek out an alfredo recipe on here rather than buying another jar).
