This is the first recipe I have left a review on, it was just that delicious. None of the ingredients needed to be altered, and it was also quick and easy enough to cook on a weeknight.

I try alot of new recipes and this is by far the best dish i have made in a long time. I would definately make it again. It is really flavorful. I cut the chicken into 1" cubes instead of cooking them whole and i used dried basil instead of fresh.
