      This was a very good dish. I used skinless, boneless chicken breasts beause that was what I had on hand. Perhaps that's what caused me to not have enough 'juice' to baste occasionally, as stated in Ev's recipe. Nevertheless, it was really tasty and my picky eater daughter loved it, that alone merits an extra star! While cooking, my house was filled with the scent of lemon, garlic and basil. Thanks for a winner Evelyn!

      loved this recipe. quick to prep and great tasting. i think it would be useful if i knew what to baste with as there was no excess liquid in my pan either. next time i will use left over butter mixture and see how that works.
