A wonderful lite pasta dish with traditional flavors

  • 1/4 cup and 3 tablespoons chicken broth
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried basil

Directions

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and saute for 5 to 7 minutes, or until chicken is cooked    through (no longer pink). Remove from skillet and drain on paper towels.
