Fresh Basil Chicken

This was delicious! All summer I was looking for recipes with fresh basil. This uses 1 cup and we all loved it. It was quick and easy to make.

Fresh Basil Chicken

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic -- minced
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast -- pounded thin
1 cup fresh basil -- cut into thin slivers
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Mix together lemon juice, water, soy sauce, sugar and pepper in small bowl; set aside.

Swirl oil in heated skillet; add garlic and saute 1-2 minutes. Add chicken and cook over medium heat on both sides, about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup of the basil to the chicken and stir well. Add marinade mixture to chicken. Simmer until chicken is done. Before serving, add the other 1/2 cup of basil.

This recipe yields 4 servings.
