Garden Fresh Basil Chicken

I thought this was good and easy to make.  I didn't have enough fresh basil, so used dried in the liquid mixture.

Garden Fresh Basil Chicken
Pampered Chef

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
16 fresh whole basil leaves
1.2 c chicken broth
1/4 c chopped fresh basil leaves
1 T lemon juice
1/4 t black pepper
1 garlic clove minced
1 T olive oil(opt)

With knife parallel to cutting board, cut slit along one side of each chicken breast to form a pocket.  Place 4 whole basil leaves in each pocket and press closed.  In a small bowl, combine broth, basil, lemon juice, pepper and garlic.  Set aside

In medium skillet, heat oil(Beth used non stick pan, so no oil) and add chicken.  Brown on both sides.  Pour broth mixture over chicken and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low.  Cover and cook for 7-8 minutes until chicken in no longer pink in center.
