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!"

Didi9194 6 days 5 hours agoOmg to die for, I didn't bread my chicken, I butterflied them n cooked them on the BBQ not quite fully done then added to the sauce to cook fully. To thicken the sauce I added a few tbsp of flour to some chicken stock before adding to the pot n it thickened it nicely. Knocked it outa the park according to my kids n daughter n law..will definitely make again n again! !!
jaswedberg 2 weeks agoUsed corn flakes instead of bread crumbs and also let the chicken finish cooking in the sauce for about 10 minutes....was the best chicken I ever had! Definitely will make again!
cayococo16 3 months agoDelicious! I didn't have pimiento so I substituted sun-dried tomatoes. I will use this recipe next time I entertain...very decadent!
Jettech 3 months agoI made this for the first time for my family and it was a huge success!!! We all loved it!! I will change a couple of things next time, like, pound out the chic breasts or get cutlets. I will definitely make more sauce!
Heatherina 4 months agoDelicious overall. Next time I would use fresh basil and add a bit of cayenne to the cream sauce.

123luckygirl321 7 months agoThis was a hit with my family! Instead of pimentos I used garlic fire roasted diced tomatoes. Only because #1 I couldn't find a jar of only pimentos & #2 My kids would probably not eat them. But other than that substitution it was delicious!!!!
