Chicken Basil Cream

Chicken Basil Cream is a great recipe to make for a quick dinner for two. It isn’t too hard to make, but tastes like you cooked for hours. A creamy sauce is poured over breaded chicken to make this delicious entree. Pair it with some fresh bread, pasta noodles, or vegetables, and you have a complete meal! If I know I am putting the chicken over noodles, I usually double the sauce so there is enough to cover the chicken and the noodles sufficiently. I am not much of a wine drinker, but my husband is and said that this is a great meal to have a glass of wine with as well!

This recipe is one that my aunt used to make when I lived with them when I first went off to college. Her recipe included less cheese, more basil, and pimentos. As I usually do, I changed the recipe up to fit what we like. I love cheese, so had to add more of that. The basil was almost too strong for my tastes. And really, the pimentos didn’t seem to add any flavor so I just cut those out completely.
