    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.

    What more can I say than THANK YOU!! This was fast and easy to make. basil from the garden freshly picked and chopped, organic chicken, a side salad, and of course a glass of wine. DH and I enjoyed this! The basil flavors came through from smell to tastebuds. Gentle sauce on the tongue. LOVELY! I have been busy canning and let me tell you this came together quickly. All ingredients in the house regularly. Saving to favorites. Thank you!<br/>Made for AUS/NZ Swap 80
