Chicken in Basil Cream

Crystal Tessmer


I actually found this recipe in an old Taste of Home cookbook. I made it for my family and even the two year old had seconds! I had doubled the sauce recipe and my husband made a casserole the next day with the leftover sauce, canned chicken, veggies and noodles. It was fantastic!
