PanNan this is absolutely wonderful! I had to use dried basil but the flavors were still great! Thanks for sharing!

Spices are everything and this recipe falls in that catagory. Very easy and quick. I will make again maybe with some chicken breast. Loved it thank you.

My goodness!!! I just prepared this recipe and it was AWESOME. For red wine vinegar, I used 3 tablespoons of Roscato wine (it's red & sweet), and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar, which I mixed together and added to the recipe. You have got to try this, seriously.
