    This was ok, I wasn't sure about the flavour... seemed a little bland to me. It was alright but nothing to rave about... don't think I would make this again....

    Great recipe! It was very tasty and filling, and the fact that it was lower in fat and calories was just a bonus! The basil really added a great touch. Definitely going to be making this one again!

    Delicious, easy and fast best describes this recipe. Perfect for a week night, plus the pounding is good stress relief from a day at work. I used a spicy roasted garlic spagetti sauce as the tomato sauce and it worked really well with the basil / chicken / mozzarella flavours. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Redsie.
