Top-ranked recipe named "Chicken in Basil Cream (9 pts)"
"I loved this recipe, though I ended up with a pretty different outcome! We couldn't find all the right ingredients and substituted a few hot green peppers (I think I used 2) for the pimento and used dried basil instead of fresh basil (same amount, though). It was still absolutely fantastic if you like spicy food (which I love). The sauce was still delicious and I can imagine how good it would've been w/ the right peppers. I served it with some penne and olive oil with sauted asparagus and garlic on the side. I'll definitely be cooking this one again!"- Daraji

Sippa 6 months agoI found that the pimentos just disappeared in the sauce, so I replaced them with a few tomatoes. I also added a couple cloves of garlic. After cooking the chicken, I added a couple of tablespoons of flour to make a roux so the sauce would be thicker. This is perfect on Basmati rice. It can also be made without breading the chicken, cutting it into bite-sized pieces and just putting the sauce on rice. I have added mushrooms to the sauce as well with success.
