Amazing! Totally elegant in presentation and flavor they'll never guess how quick and simple it was to make. It makes the house smell wonderful too. I LOVE it with the basil. To avoid a "hay" taste be sure to fry the basil to BRIGHT GREEN and NOT DARK GREEN or Black! I'm updating because I have made this several times now and tonight the grocery store did not have any fresh basil. I bought a bag of prewashed baby spinach and fried it instead and then added 2 teaspoons of dried basil to the sauce as I was cooking it. It was just as good and the baby spinach is about half the price or less than the basil. Also definately don't try making this with anything but real grape tomatoes. Their sweet unique flavor is what really does it for this dish. AND COOKING WINE! My store was out of cooking wine and I tried using a medium dry white and YUCK!!!
DELICIOUS!! Restaurant quality dish! and I couldn't believe how incredibly easy!! The whole family LOVED this!! I used chicken thighs instead of breasts (we prefer dark meat)and followed the recipe exact. The chicken was super tender and full of flavor! As others said the only problem is this doesn't call for enough rice. Double the rice to 2 cups serve with some fresh steamed broccoli and you've got yourself an incredible meal!! This is a must try!! Thanks for the wonderful recipe Amanda!!:)
Great dish the whole family enjoyed it. I thought it was a little sour for my taste though so if I did it again I think I'd put a little less wine and vinegar and perhaps some onions for some sweetness.
Apart from the extremely weird basil garnish - which does indeed have a distinctly grassy taste - this was a really tasty really easy meal. I wasn't sure whether or not to keep the skin on the chicken so I took the healthier option and removed it. I was making 2 servings but I used a whole can of low sodium fat-free chicky broth and simmered the breasts in it turning them every 5 mins or so. I omitted the wine because I only had cheap plonk and I know from experience that that sort of crappola adds nothing good to a dish. Great recipe. Thanks!
We love the flavour of fresh basil but did not care for the flavour of the fried basil..it almost had a 'hay' taste to it?? Will make this again but will not fry the basil but will add at the end! Also felt like there was way too much broth.
This was very good. I had a lot of fresh grape tomatoes from my garden that I used and it was excellent. I used boneless skinless chicken breast instead of chicken halves and it was super tender. I will definately make again and I am anxious to serve for company.
This recipe was excellent. The fried Basil and balsamic vinegar gave the chicken a wonderful unique flavor. I replaced some of the rice water with the extra chicken broth from the can and also added the extra Basil oil from the pan to keep it from sticking and give it a little extra flavor. I would suggest using more rice as one cup didn t make enough for everyone. I excluded the tomatoes because I didn t have any on hand and didn t miss them at all. The fried Basil made for a grand presentation. Rave reviews from everyone. Thanks for sharing your recipe Amanda. I ll definitely be making this one again!
