Chicken Breasts With Creamy Basil Sauce

Chicken Breasts With Creamy Basil  Sauce created by lazyme

This is a very quick and elegant recipe that would be great for serving special guests. I use fat-free half and half because it is one dairy product I can't tell the difference in.

    I've tried making this a few times. Every time I make it my house fills up with smoke. The outside of the chicken burns while the inside is still raw. I'm guessing it needs to cook longer on a lower temperature. It usually still manages to come out ok in the end but I'm not impressed enough with the flavor to keep setting off the smoke alarm.

    We really enjoyed the nice taste of basil in this chicken dish. Very easy to prepare. I didn't put the chicken back into the sauce but poured it on top. Like lazyme did. Next time I will increase the sauce cuz it's that good! Thanks for posting.
