A great way to serve chicken breasts - over rice with a fragrant herb sauce. Frying fresh basil in olive oil really brings out the flavour!
Amazing! Totally elegant in presentation and flavor they'll never guess how quick and simple it was to make. It makes the house smell wonderful too. I LOVE it with the basil. To avoid a "hay" taste be sure to fry the basil to BRIGHT GREEN and NOT DARK GREEN or Black! I'm updating because I have made this several times now and tonight the grocery store did not have any fresh basil. I bought a bag of prewashed baby spinach and fried it instead and then added 2 teaspoons of dried basil to the sauce as I was cooking it. It was just as good and the baby spinach is about half the price or less than the basil. Also definately don't try making this with anything but real grape tomatoes. Their sweet unique flavor is what really does it for this dish. AND COOKING WINE! My store was out of cooking wine and I tried using a medium dry white and YUCK!!! - 02 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
DELICIOUS!! Restaurant quality dish! and I couldn't believe how incredibly easy!! The whole family LOVED this!! I used chicken thighs instead of breasts (we prefer dark meat)and followed the recipe exact. The chicken was super tender and full of flavor! As others said, the only problem is this doesn't call for enough rice. Double the rice to 2 cups, serve with some fresh steamed broccoli and you've got yourself an incredible meal!! This is a must try!! Thanks for the wonderful recipe Amanda!! - 22 Sep 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Great dish, the whole family enjoyed it. I thought it was a little sour for my taste, though, so if I did it again, I think I'd put a little less wine and vinegar, and perhaps some onions for some sweetness. - 04 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
