    Great recipe, easy and delicious! Loved the basil, perfect with the veggies. The marinade on this gave the chicken a wonderful flavor. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    This was so easy to do and it tasted great. I used sundried tomatoes instead and fed my family a delicious meal for less than 300 calories.

    Really enjoyed this recipe! I marinated the chicken in the morning and let it sit all day in the 'frig. which gave it a wonderful deep flavor. These make a beautiful presentation!
