Very time consuming pounding these breast,and the basil left a sweet taste akin to anise ,i dont like a sweet or licorice taste on chicken,im sorry,these went in the garbage,
This dish was sooooo good. I made exactly as directed, but had to cook a little longer than stated, but the chicken breast that I used were pretty large, and I may not have pounded them quite thin enough. But they were so tender and they looked so pretty when I pulled them out of the oven. Thanks for the great recipe!!!!
